    I didn't realize Sue had passed. I had known her most of my life growing up near her. We grew apart after school, but I did see her from time to time and she was always so kind. I have many childhood memories of Sue, especially riding our bikes all over Rockford! I believe she taught me how to ride with no hands! I'm so sorry for your loss, she was an incredible person.

    Sue continued to be a Very Beautiful Woman with a Sweet Spirt during her many years of dealing with poor health. She NEVER really complained about how bad she must have really felt but stayed upbeat & friendly all the time. Sue was a good patient & had several excellent physicians involved with her illness & health care. As such, she ALWAYS believed that one day her small body would be healed. As close neighbors & friends, we always admired Sue's vibrant personality throughout her illness. She was a wonderful Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Friend. Her neighbors will miss her sweet Spirit & her Love for her very pretty Flower Garden. Sue always liked to decorate her front yard according to the Season that was about to change. Thinking of you Steve Rondone & the rest of Sue's Wonderful Family, too. Rest now in God's Beautiful, Heavenly Peace, Sue. Your neighbors & Friends Will Never Forget You. 💖Sandy
