Whenever she heard music, Sue was up and dancing, bringing smiles all around. She was also an avid Boston sports fan. Her favorite destination was her Cape Cod cottage with her family. Gardening, crafts, and puzzles were her other delights. Above all Sue wanted to help people and put all her efforts into brightening others’ lives.
