    We meet Sue many years ago through quilting. Both being quilt shop owners we had alot in common except Sue was by far the more talented one ! She had more vision and a way to express it like no other. She was a master at her craft and will be missed by many. Our deepest condolences to her family and all who knew her. Rest in peace Sue ♥️

    I was a part time mail hauler. She used to leave me nice little notes and candies in the back of the Tabor USPS. I always thought it was really nice of her. So I would do the same back lol. I will always remember that about her. Sorry for your loss she was nice to everyone.
