She enjoyed tennis, cooking, reading, walking, gardening, current events and all things sports. She faithfully attended church throughout her life with St. William Catholic Parish in Los Altos her most recent place of worship.

Sue loved her family and had many wonderful friends from all phases of her life that she kept in touch with after moving to San Diego five years ago. She was known for being a vibrant, funny and positive person, always celebrating achievements and birthdays.
