Sue was a lady of many talents.  She could sing, play the piano, paint, draw and do just about anything around the house.  She was a beautiful seamstress.  Her daughters wore many match alike outfits she made when they were younger and she also made may baby and Barbie doll clothes.  As her daughters grew, she sewed many cheerleading skirts, homecoming and prom dresses.  She also made clothes for the grandchildren.  When arthritis set in and made it difficult for her to sew, she continued to crochet afghans and enjoyed doing paint by numbers.  She also owned “The Cup” restaurant in the 1970’s.
