Sue had a passion for loving children.  She worked as a cook for many years at Quality Child Care and when any child needed a hug, they would find her.  
Sue could also grow anything that you gave her.  She found comfort in taking care of things, often making food for company.  When you would go to her house, the first thing she would ask you was "if you had eaten".
