Sue was a tough, strong, hard working woman. As a child, she liked playing baseball, which earned her the nickname “Babe”, after Babe Ruth. She worked at Queen Anne Candy, Hammond Valve and Southern Electric. She enjoyed listening to polka music and spending time at her cottage at Saugany Lake. Sue was a member of St. Stanislaus Church, Post 369 Ladies Auxiliary and former Girl Scout leader. The family wishes to thank the Sisters at the Albertine Home and the staff at Hartsfield Village who provided the care for Sue. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Sue’s name to St. Stanislaus Church or St. Maria Goretti Church.
