Sue and Bob resided in Hillsdale, New Jersey for many years. Sue was a substitute teacher at St. John The Baptist School in Hillsdale. Sue ultimately became the principal at St. John's for many years until she and Bob moved to Manahawkin, New Jersey. Sue then taught second grade at Eagleswood Elementary School until her retirement. She loved teaching and the children who were lucky enough to be in her class.
Sue was an extraordinary wife, mom, grandma, meme, sister, aunt and friend. She possessed a wicked sense of humor. She loved her Eagles and Phillies. She was fierce, feisty, kind, compassionate and simply the strongest woman you could ever meet. She was an inspiration to all who knew her.
The world lost a huge ray of sunshine, but she is the shiniest star in the heavens above. To say she will be missed is the biggest understatement one could ever say. Sue was loved by everyone who had the privilege and joy of being in her life. She was simply perfection at its best.
