    Oh how I loved this woman. She was such a great mentor to me and we just hit it off at the Jr High when I worked as a CVE student. From then on, we have remained friends. I think of her every time I pass by and so glad I stopped before covid hit. We had a good visit. I can still see her smiling and saying “oh my sweet Tammy”
    Thought and prayers with Pam. I love you and your family.

    Sue was a friend of my mom’s so I knew her from a young age but when I got to Marion Jr High I really got to know and love her. She was a class act. Pam, my condolences.

    Sue has always been a special person to me! She had a very sensitive, kind heart. Which I have appreciated ever since I met her at the Junior High School. I always thought of her being such a beautifully dressed, attractive woman, with a precious smile. Much love to you Pam!!! I am very sorry for your loss.
