Sue recently retired from Rock Springs Refrigeration and was previously employed at Bloedorn Lumber and AD Martin Lumber. It is no surprise that her career complimented her passion for painting and carpentry. She was a tomboy all her life. Like her dad, Susan loved to build things. She could carpenter with the best of them and ensured she always had her own woodworking tools. She also loved to spend hours in her flower garden. As a young girl, she had a horse named Gemini that was her mode of transportation and indeed a one-woman horse. She loved nothing better than riding in a pair of cutoff jeans, barefoot and bareback. Susan loved animals, but especially cats.
She is survived by her children, grandchildren and siblings, Debbie (Dan) Brown, Scott (Pam) May, Wes May, Doug (Krista), Russ (Kathy), and Teri Schupman.
