    We send your family healing prayers and comforting hugs. We share in your sadness as we have all lost a very special person. We pray that God wraps his arms around you during this difficult time. May you feel surrounded by love. Sue is smiling down on us from Heaven. She is gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.

    Bill & I think the world of Sue. She was an absolutely wonderful teacher to our Daughter, Morgan. When she would see us out around Sedalia without Morgan, she would always ask, “Where’s the golden child?” Even after Morgan graduated high school she was always interested in what was going on with her when we spoke to her out somewhere. We are so proud that Morgan had the opportunity to have such a positive role model as Sue in her life. One of the highlights of Morgan’s senior year was having the privilege to be Sue’s Student Teachers Aid.

    13 years ago Sue student taught in my third grade classroom. During her time she showed what true compassion was for students and love for education. I will miss seeing her and only wish I had told her how inspiring she was to me every time I saw her! She never had a negative thing to say about her students, her school, or her peers. Sue was able to touch so many lives in education, and not just the students. May every educator show the love Sue did every day to their students! Thank you for our time together and for always reminding me why we do what we do!

  5. She was the best teacher and sweetest lady! She will be missed. Praying for her family, friends and students.
