  1. Sue was my best friend in high school and after graduation. Many of the happiest times in life were with her.
    My heart felt condolences to her family.

  2. Deepest condolences from the Rathburn family as we remember Sue…she worked with my Mom at the cleaners and always had funny takes on some customer episodes. I had forgotten her time at McD’s, but now remember my Dad said her ran into her quite a bit, as he was one of the regulars…my sister and I remember her from times at the Port Yacht Club with her mother Joan and sister Cathy. She was a charmingly strong spirit and we fondly remember her laugh… may she rest in peace and may the family be comforted knowing her soul is free…

  3. Sue was my best friend in high school and later we shared an apartment. Many of my fondest memories were made in those years.
    Thanks for all the good times.

  4. Susie…I only have one thing to say that says it all. Thanks for the pork chops. I now know they meant you loved me. Happy trails…until we meet again. Your annoying little cousin.

  5. Sue was an awsome lady to work with. I worked with her at schneider cheese for six years. Loved her big eyes and her opinion too!!!

  6. I met Susan a few years ago when she worked at
    McDonald’s in Port. She was always so friendly
    to me and other ‘“old-timers”. Sincerest sympathy
    to you Family. A fanxx

  7. Mike and family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Susan. Please accept my deepest condolences. Time does heal, and she will never be far from your heart.
