Suellen was a wonderful person as well as a favorite aunt. She was 9 years older than I and I thought she really was the “coolest” person I had ever met! She was very kind, had great style and had a way of making you feel like you were the most intersting person she knew as she talked with you. I will miss her and her wonderful smile!
To the family….We were so deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Suellen. May you find peace in the many memories of a special lady. Our deepest sympathy to you. She will be missed by many whose lives she touched in so many positive ways, for many years. God Bless.
What a good neighbor! Suellen was always quick with a “Hello or Hi neighbor.” She will be missed on Park St! Our condolences to the family. May God bless you and keep you.
I was several years behind Suellen in school and thought she was just IT. When I had the pleasure to know her as an adult, nothing changed. She still was just the best. I will miss her at swimmercize where we talked about books and authors and what to read and what not to read as we walked across the pool. She entertained us with her Florida stories. What a loss.She will be deeply missed. What a loss to her family, the community, and all of us whose lives she touched.
I was so sorry to hear of SueEllen’s sudden passing. I enjoyed talking with her at Research Club. I hope that her family and friends take comfort in knowing how many lives she touched.Marilyn Sandsj
Robbie and family – thinking and praying for you during this time. Your mother always had a kind word for everyone, she was a “special lady” for sure. Cherish your memories.
I have been struggling with what to say about Suellen (Poochie). She was called Poochie or Pooch because her dad’s jeep had that name when he was in WWII.
Whether it was the early years at the cottage, or later doing crafting and talking about our daughters, Suellen was just fun to be with. I will miss her. David and I send condolences to her family.
Robby – We were so sorry to hear about Suellen. I remember always being in awe of her as a younger cousin at the Sunday Jump get togethers at Grammie Jump’s house. She was beautiful inside and out. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

We enjoyed working with Suellen for many years at the Willard Memorial Library. She was a kind gentle person with a great sense of humor. She was a very classy lady but was yet very much down to earth. We will miss her very much and feel very blessed to have known her. Our thoughts and prayers go to the family. May God comfort your hearts and give you peace.

To Suellen’s family,
I am one of many that you do not know, but we went to school together starting in the 8th grade. That is when they merge the the smaller schools into Willard. Suellen was one of the first to welcome us and make us feel comfortable and not so lost. In high school, we had study hall together and I remember her twiling her hair as she studied. I hope knowing that she is able to smile when she sees Jim again and able to touch and hold his hand brings you comfort in these diffuclt days. Blessings, Georgeanna Pemberton Mills. Class of 1960
To Robbie and family,
Your mother will certainly be missed but not forgotten. She was a wonderful,lively and well read person. She was a very good cook and did a lot of great things,especially for the Willard Memorial Library system. I offer my condolences from the Richard Yohn family.
Suellen was one of the most wonderful people I have known. I had the pleasure of working with her at the library through my college years. She always told the best stories and gave me great advice. I shared many laughs with her as did so many people. She was truly a beautiful person inside and out and I am glad to have had the pleasure to have her as a friend and co-worker. My thoughts and prayers that God will comfort the family and stories of her will make them smile.
It was so good to be able to see Suellen at the WHS Class of 1961’s 50th reunion last September. Suellen was always gracious and kind no matter when or where you saw her. I know that she loved working with the Library at Willard and am sure many children’s lives were enriched because of her. She will be missed by many friends and her family. She was a great friend to the WHS Class of 61.
Suellen and I shared a passion for stitching and a habit of buying and starting needlework projects that sometimes got finished and often did not! It was from her I learned that the joy of learning something new didn’t lead to an obligation to finish everything I started!
To Suellen’s family, I grew up at 722 Park Street and knew Suellen so well. She was like the big sister I never had. I have such fond memories of Bob, Corrine and Suellen. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family. God bless you all and God Bless Suellen. Fondly, Gordon and Janet Moore (Terveen)

The world just lost another beauiful soul,
She will be very much missed. Suellen was such a
