Memories Timeline


  1. Sue Mills is already missed. Sue sent us frequent texts, “I just wanted to say Hi…Just checking in on you two”; Sue sent us Holiday greetings for every Holiday, including Mother’s and Father’s Day; Sue encouraged us to get together and get out more, so we will miss our relatively frequent dinners out, with or without other guests, where we explored different restaurants. Sue supported us during difficult times and supported others as well. Sue unselfishly and consistently visited her cousin Joe while he was ill at home, in the hospital, or in the nursing home. For instance, she and Wayne prepared and served a holiday dinner at the nursing home, and stayed with Joe, laughing and joking. It made his day! Sue continued to visit Joe whenever she could, even during Covid, even when she was not sure he recognized her (one time, he told her he had a cousin named Sue, lol) and even when he was no longer able to communicate. We miss her, but she will always be in our hearts as the loving, kind, caring person she was. We wish to thank Gerry, Shirley, and Emily and John for their loving care of Sue during her days of great need. You are all amazing! We know Sue’s spirit is with you and in you all!

    • Thank you for your note Chris! She talked about you enough. She loved visiting with you as a dear friend. Not just getting her hair fixed😘
