    Sue was such a wonderful Christian to be around in any situation! She is missed already. Her joy and humor were contagious. Her beautiful children, grandchildren and great grandchildren can carry on these traits and loving character, but we will miss Sue until we see her again!

    Hi Elizabeth, John often mentions your mom going on the same Casa missions trip to Mexico that He and our son Phillip went on. They all had such a good time.
    Your mom was always a joy to see and spend time with. We will be out of state and will miss her gathering.
    With Love, Carole Winter and family

    Sue was at Olathe Med the entire time I worked there. She was the epitome of a nurse–always willing to help, caring, and professional. It was always a better day when she was working. Prayers for the family.

    So sad to hear of Sue’s passing. She was always a ray of sunshine and a wonderful nurse. Had many good times at OMC. We joked when I retired in 2018 that she was still going to be there.
    My condolences to her family, she was so proud of all of you.

    Sue was such a sweet lady! We had great conversations.

    So sorry for lateness of condolences but just became aware of her going home. Truly I thought she would live until Jesus came back to take us all home.

    While working with Sue at OMC we built a beautiful relationship as Sisters in the Lord. Encouraging and being encouraged, supporting and be supported in the good, hard and bad times. Laughing, crying, disagreeing and rejoicing together for all those years. I for one will never ever forget my awesome friend and sister in Christ I was blessed to met. We always said no goodbyes but see ya later, knowing we would see each other in heaven. I’ll see you soon and forever will be rejoicing!
