I had been thinking of the Newby family when I learned of Sue's passing. She was such an inspiration to me. She was so loving friendly and compassionate. They were such an important part of my young adult life. The Sue and her family took me in an included me in their lives. This meant so much to me since it was my first time away from home. She will always be in my memories. I hope her families memories of this beautiful lady will console them in the days to come.

She was smart, eloquent and funny. She adored her family, was a loyal friend and cared deeply about animals, the environment and doing the right thing.I worked with her for 6 years and learned so much about compassion, generosity of spirit and "living in the moment". I will always remember Sue and feel so blessed to have had her in my life. Namaste, my friend. You will be missed

Sue and Lowell both were one of my early life mentors. Very generous and salt of the earth people. I will never forget the opportunities Sue gave me as a new young mother trying to learn bookkeeping. My sincere condolences to the all your family. Denise
