My cousin Sue, was an encyclopedia of family history. She travelled and devoted so much of her time researching the Taylor family history. I am so grateful for all her dedication and hard work. Thank you Sue for sharing all your knowledge with your extended family. You will be greatly missed. ❤️

Sue was not just a great neighbor she allowed me to be part of the family. I always admired her ability to take care of herself and two kids when she became a single mom, she not only survived, she excelled in her profession. Curt and Jennifer, thank you for taking such wonderful care of your mom in the last few years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

We will all miss Aunt Sue! I remember spending many Thanksgivings at her home and she always made us feel so welcome, just like the family we are. While her life was filled with many challenges, she faced them all with courage and overcame all the obstacles and raised a family we are all proud of. She lived her life to the full. She ran her race and now she can rest. I'm sorry we were unable to make it to the funeral. My love to you all!!!
