Sue enjoyed antiquing and proudly displayed her treasures, along with family heirlooms, throughout their home. Her love of decorating spilled over into the outdoors, where she loved tending her flower beds and decorating her garden. Famous for her Oreo cookie cake and sourdough bread, her love of cooking was often lovingly shared with family and friends through large family gatherings, church potlucks, and local sports team meals. Throughout the years, she was a caretaker and babysitter to many children, all of whom were very special to her. In the past 8 years, one of her greatest joys was helping care for her beloved nephew, Joshua Paul Denton, whom she doted on like a grandson.
