Sue’s main concern her entire life was for her family and friends. She ensured, by organizing frequent gatherings, that her friends and family members, immediate and extended, got to know each other. She was employed as an executive assistant in a number of different capacities in Charleston and Springfield. She studied English literature from an early age and was a voracious reader. She also loved music, both classical and popular, and instilled the same deep appreciation she had for it in many other family members.
