Sue, I will love you and miss you forever. There are so many happy memories of growing up together. So many great times raising our children together even if we were often on different sides of the country. We will be laughing and crying reminiscing about you for years to come. You will always be here in our hearts and in our memories. Love you dear sister.

Sue was the kindest, most supportive person in my son's life when his father passed, essentially stepping in as surrogate mother the summer of 2014. I will forever be appreciative of her and Jack. With my deepest sympathy and condolences, Jonnie Lyn

It is with a heavy heart that I learned of Sue's passing. Sue was a beacon of light in the neighborhood, (..with Marley too.), always stopping to chat and catch up. Please let me know if I may be of assistance as I'm right next door. With sympathy, Ned

Sue, the sister I never had, you were the kindest, most selfless, giving person I have ever known. Jeff, Hannah and I were so lucky that our paths crossed and lives shared since Kodiak. I can’t have any memory of Kodiak without you in it. Your laugh, your smile.... always being there for everyone. I am hurting... your loss is immense. Love you girlfriend.

I am absolutely heartbroken over hearing of Sue’s passing. I don’t have a memory in Cape Cod Ma. without her. We worked together and spent our time off together. Sitting on her deck talking for hours,15 Observatory Lane was like my second home. Sue and her wonderful kids embraced me, they made me feel like I belonged with them. Sue & I talked, we laughed, we told stories. I learned from her the kind of mom (she was the most natural mother), friend, and person I wanted to be. Sue was the most empathetic, caring and loving soul, all while rocking a awesome sense of humor. Sue impacted who I am as a person, I’m eternally grateful for knowing, loving, & laughing with her.....and boy did we laugh!!!!!

My sincere condolences to the Blake, Ryan and Kleinstuber families for your loss. Suzanne and I were classmates and graduates of the class of “77” from Indian River High School. I remember Suzanne as friendly, outgoing and popular during our high school years. I am deeply saddened to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Sue was always supportive of me and my family. Checking in and asking how each of us were doing. When times were not so good she gave me advice and when things were great you could really tell she was genuinely happy for us. I will miss our talks and her jokes. I will always have so many great memories of our trips for work. She kept me out of trouble when she wasn’t part of the ruckus. I appreciate having known you and you will surely be missed.

I met Sue when I went to work with the Coast Guard in Cape Cod, my husband was active duty and she had had some of the same experiences as I had had. She never judged or had an unkind word to say about anyone. My heart is breaking for her kids that meant the world to her.

Sympathy and prayers got out to Sue's family. Sue was a wonderful friend in Kodiak. After that, her involvement in the Theo's Work mission in Haiti took me down that same path. Her fun-loving spirit was balanced by her deep compassion. May her family find comfort in the joyful memories as they face difficult days ahead.

I was very surprised as I read today's MV Times. I will sorely miss Sue's cherry voice when I call to order oysters. My contact with her over the years was always pleasant. Most recently working with her on the donated oysters for the Animal Shelter's on line auction will be my favorite fondest memory. Rest in Peace Dear Sue. Duncan

I lived next door to Sue in Aspen Hill,Maryland, she was so much fun and had such a vivid imagination. I'm so sorry to see this, I was just trying to reconnect with childhood friends. So very sorry for your loss.

Please accept our condolences- I heard she was such a loving person - I met her I’m sure at one time maybe at a gathering with Jen and Bryan or Stephanie and John - such a large family - I’m sure she will be missed by all - Love and Peace - Larry and Beej

I’m devastated at the news of Sue’s passing. She absolutely was one one the kindest persons I have ever known. She was my dental hygienist until she retired and then our connection for the wonderful sweet neck oysters. I know my husband ( who is away right now) will also feel terrible about this loss and would wish to send his deepest condolences to Jack and the rest of the family at this difficult time. You will be in our thoughts and prayers -
