My deepest sympathies. I am one of Sue's many loyal and long-time customers. For over 30 years Sue has been part of my life - a friend whose talent, positive energy and outlook on life was always an inspiration. Over the years she cut and styled my hair, my mother's hair and my children's hair. At one point in the 1990's she organized an evening event where she and her staff styled most of the female cast's hair in period 1920's pin curls and waves for a BHS North musical. It was quite a thrill and a lasting memory for all involved!
We always looked forward to our appointments. She knew our quirks and stories and had a talent for making everyone feel important. I am so sorry that she is gone. She was a survivor and it seemed that no matter what happened, she was invincible. We loved her and will miss her.

Sue was a beautiful open book. She had no judgements or pretense what you saw is what you got. Such a wonderful rarity. We will miss sweet sue.

We are so sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. Bob has been her HT carrier much of the last four years. Sue was always so sweet and kind, dropping off the bags for reuse on our porch and leaving nice notes. We will miss her very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

I will miss Sue’s laugh and 30 years of sitting in her chair listening to her latest Acquisition on the home shopping network.. God Bless her, she will be missed by many people.
