Sue was a Beautiful, kind, friendly, warm hearted, adventurous young woman that was full of life and energy. She was a very active and workative person, she held many jobs, her last being a postal carrier for the U.S. Postal Service in Ashland, PA. She passed away in a tragic motorcycle accident on a warm sunny thursday afternoon in the month of March just six days before her 33rd birthday. I feel so' fortunate to have known her. In the 1981-1982 school year we were classmates in the 8th grade at the D.H.H. Lengel school. I remember her so' well, she had the most beautiful blue eyes that I've ever seen, she had a smile that was so' bright it could light up any room. She was the type of person that once you met her you could never forget her. Even after more than 24 years, I still remember Sue as though it was just yesterday when we last seen and talked to each other. She had a very friendly out going personality, she really had a way with words and great sense of humor and was good at being able to make you laugh when you were feeling depressed. She looked very much like and reminds me very much of the late princess Diana, all the way from her beautiful blond hair to her ever so' bright smile, and those beautiful bright piercing blue eyes of her's that were so' full of life and love it's impossible to describe them with words. Out of all the different classmates that I attended school with and got to know through the years, I remember Sue the most, that's how impressive her personality was, she was absolutely unforgetable in every way. I cared about her so' much, for me there will never be another woman quite like Sue, she was so' unique, one of a kind. Not a one single day goes by that I don't think about her, she ment so' much to me......... She is missed tremendously by her mother and her son Geoffrey as well as the rest of her family and all her friends, more than words could ever say. It still is and always will be very difficult for all of us to accept the fact that she has passed away. In the short time that she was here with us, she brought so' much joy and happiness into all of our lives and left us with so' many good memories. We thank her and we thank GOD for them. One thing is for certain, Sue will NEVER be forgotten. She will ALWAYS remain alive in our hearts, memories, and prayers. Until the glorious day comes when we all will be reunited with her again, may she rest in heavenly peace.
