Sue was a graduate of West Irondequoit High School. She worked at Kodak where she met her husband John and became a proud mother and grandmother. She volunteered for the Hilton School District helping in the classrooms when her children attended school there. After John retired, they spent 20 years in Seneca, South Carolina. She was a bargain shopper and loved to go to the flea market for her weekly shopping trip where she made many friends. She put her shopping skills to work and took pride in helping support a shelter in South Carolina where they called her their “Fairy Godmother”. Shelter residents would call when they were ready to move out and she would set them up from her “at home store” with many of the basics they needed. Some of her favorite things were dark chocolate sponge candy, Coke or Coke Zero so don’t try to give her Pepsi. She loved her road trips to Maine with family and friends. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
