I was saddened to learn of Sue's passing. My brother Dale forwarded the obituary notice to me. I fondly remember her as a friendly and loving soul. She always had a smile and warm greeting when we met. May you find peace in your grief.

Clyde, Christy, Chad and Family.
I am deeply saddened by the passing of Carolyn. For the past 30+ years, she has been a fixture in my life. A person you could go to with any problem. She would listen, give advice, a shoulder to cry on. I will miss those days. Through the years, when I would be over and introductions were made. She always referred to me as her 2nd son inlaw (lol). When she would do that. It made me feel so welcomed and loved. That she would feel that way about me.
The pain that I am feeling is strong right now. But knowing that she is no longer in pain herself, makes me feel a little better. I know that she has been in pain the last few years from her injuries.
Love to all you
