Sue was 1 of 8 siblings growing up in difficult economic times but always had what she needed. She attended the Christian schools, graduating from Kalamazoo Christian HS in 1949. Sue met her future husband, Archie, when both were 15, were married on October 12, 1950, and were about to celebrate their 73rd anniversary. She worked at a couple of different office jobs when they were first married but primarily was a very devoted and faithful wife, mom, and homemaker. Sue was a charter member of Prairie Edge Christian Reformed Church and was still attending at the time of her death. Sue & Archie loved traveling, visiting much of the US & Canada. They especially liked staying at their place at Thornapple Lake and spending the winters in Harlingen, TX. Sue was prolific at keeping a journal/diary, recording daily activities for over 40 years. She was also a terrific baker of cookies and especially pies. More importantly, Sue loved Jesus and served Him faithfully.
