    Both Sue and Bill were very active at the Coulterville United Methodist Church. They started the youth choir and introduced me into solo singing. Now that both are reunited in Heaven’s choir they will be singing great songs to our Lord.

    Aunt Sue was a beautiful soul and spirit! Her joy was infectious; I don’t recall a time in my life when I was around her where she was not smiling or laughing! One of the sweetest people to walk the earth and I look forward to seeing her and Uncle Bill on the other side of Eternity. Thoughts and prayers are with you Beth Ellen and Stephanie and family during this difficult time. I am sorry we cannot be there to pay last respects but know we will be praying and thinking of you, and remembering her and the good memories we have! Love Krissie Beth♥️🌷🎹🕯🎶♥️
