I met Sue in 1978 when I first spent the summer at her parent’s home through the Fresh Air Fund program. As a 9-year kid from NYC, Sue and her entire family made me feel so welcome in their home. That relationship continues to this day, 48 years later. I will always remember Sue as someone who made me laugh every moment I spent with her. She had an infectious smile and was such a kind, giving person. I loved to hear her play the piano and enjoyed many sing-alongs with her during my childhood summers. My heartfelt condolences go out to the Joedicke and Mattice families All our lives are richer for having known Sue. I loved her very much and will miss her dearly. Rest in in peace Sue. I know you were greeted in Heaven by Aunt Marion & Uncle Fred and your brothers Jim and Bill.
My husband, Joel, and I had Mrs. Mattice as our chorus teacher in middle-school and high-school. I however had her as my music teacher from Kindergarten all the way through my senior year. I fondly remember each class. She allowed us to watch musicals, taught me to read music, gave me courage to try new things. She instilled in me an appreciation for music that is still with me today. She was a kind woman with great spirit.
I am sorry for your loss. You are all in our prayers.
