I worked with Sue years ago @ Buckeye Union/Continental Insurance, when she was with the Marine Office. Sue always had a smile on her face & was a friend to everybody. Whenever I was visiting in St. Mary's I would stop and chat with Sue and we would talk about all of the good people we had encountered over the years & our family. About the last time I talked to Sue I told her she was just like the "energized bunny"! She truly had a beautiful voice on that intercom system. Prayers of comfort for her family.
