Dan and Maribeth van Loon from Batavia, IL

"We have so many sweet memories of Sue from when we were in small group together: her joyful laugh, her self deprecating humor and honesty, her hunger to know and serve God, her wonderful artistic ability. We have an ornament on our tree now painted by her years ago. May the knowledge that she knew and trusted Jesus give all her loved her comfort and joy. Because He lives, so will she!"

David Ryan from Danville , IL

"I was so sorry to hear about cousin Sue's passing. I will always remember her from when we were young as our quiet, kind and beautiful cousin. I have been praying for her health daily for some time now, and I am glad she is at peace in heaven. I am sorry Brad, Kate and Matt that I could not come to the wake due to covid concerns, but you will all remain in my prayers."
