She enjoyed her bi-annual “Rowdy Girls” vacations with long-time friends and her trips with her daughter. She collected a Christmas ornament from everyplace she went; loved the holidays and watching Hallmark Christmas movies.  Sue loved water from swim team to sailing; vacations up north and retirement floating in the pool.
