A little bit about Sue...
She learned computers at Fingerhut back when a computer filled an entire room.
In Minnesota, she was the office manager for H&R Block which led to her starting her own tax consulting business when Dave’s job moved them to Colorado.
She loved to grow flowers in her gardens that Dave built for her. In fact, Dave and Sue won a prize for best yard in the neighborhood.
She loved to sing and participated in choir at school and church. She learned to play the guitar and became a cantor for the Neocatechumenal Way.
She loved to decorate the house for Christmas, Easter, and even the Fourth of July.
