“Sue had an unlimited supply of love that she spread generously among family and friends,” her loved ones said. “She was bright, upbeat, fun, engaged in the world, and a source of compassion and empathy for countless people.”

She met her first husband, Milt Stern, before he shipped out to Europe in WW II. The Sterns later divorced.
