Sadly, On March 1, 1995, she lost her husband. Due to her strong will and vivacious personality, Sue continued on with her life, surrounding herself with good friends and family. After retirement, she went to work at Stop & Shop (at Wonderland) as a cashier. Her sense of humor and warm personality kept customers coming back to the store and always choosing her line. She would forge friendships and often stay up to date with what was going on in their lives. These people loved Sue, and she loved them as well. Sue was robust, always ready for a good time, whether playing bingo, going off to the casinos or just going on a trip. She would always attend mass on a regular basis at St. Anthony of Padua Church.
