A memorial service will be held at 3:00 PM Saturday, December 15, 2018 at the Albany United Methodist Church in Albany, IL, preceded by a visitation from 1:00 PM until the time of the service. Pastor Toni Lucas will be officiating. The Fulton Chapel of the Bosma-Renkes Funeral Home in Fulton, IL, is handling arrangements. A private family interment will be in Lusk Memorial Cemetery in Albany. A memorial has been established to Windsor Manor in honor of the loving care bestowed on Sue the last year.

She had a love of music and was a record collector. She participated in various church choirs as well as the Sweet Adelines acapella singing group. Sue loved living on the water, enjoying boating and days on the water and beach with her family.
