Our dear Sue will be greatly missed by the Worms’ book club. She was a mentor at the Women’s retreat and a leader at the annual rummage sale. I feel blessed to have shared some special time with Sue and the Worms this past summer. With love, Tanis

Dear Phil and Family,
Sue was my idol in many ways, she probably wasn’t aware of. As her kid cousin, she introduced Shirley, Bryan and I to The Beatles. She had this cool boyfriend, Phil, who loved to participate in eating contests at Thanksgiving. As we grew older, Sue was my example for graceful entertaining. She shared her love of history and art with us in her docent capacities. Our birthdays are only two days apart and our celebration in NYC for a play, shopping and lunch was an annual highlight before she departed for sunny Florida. She hosted Cousins weekend in Vero, and all of us still talk about our night walk to view tortoises lay their eggs. Sue, was a beacon in our family. She will be greatly missed. May she rest in peace. Heaven will be a brighter place.
All our love,
Barb and Rich Selah

Dear Phil, Andrew, and Meredith,
I’m so sorry for your loss. Sue was a very special person—and I’ll always remember what a wonderful, welcoming hostess she was, bringing everyone together for some really memorable and fun family holidays, and that glorious Cousins Weekend. We miss her and are sending you lots of love and prayers.

Dear Phil, Andrew and Meredith,
I am very sorry to hear about the loss of Sue. I have many wonderful memories of her. One was how excited that we were to have Sue and Phil visit at Thanksgivings when they were in college at Hanover. She was the cool older cousin who took Barb and I to see Gone with the Wind. Sue was always a very gracious hostess and prepared some great dishes, which I still make . Another sweet memory that I have was Sue getting out the photo album during the infamous “Cousins Weekend” for my daughter Rose, to show her pictures of my mom and Sue’s mom. She truly loved family and will be terribly missed.

Dear Phil, Andrew, and Meredith,
I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many wonderful memories of cousin Sue! The most enduring memories are when Sue and Phil would visit us from Hanover college every Thanksgiving; such happy times! I was in grade school and always looked up to my older “sophisticated” cousin in college and really loved those visits. Even though I was young, I remember Sue and Phil’s wedding in NY so well. Another incredible memory is when Sue and Phil joined us for a beach vacation at a rental home for a week one summer – we played games, shared memories, and bonded again after not seeing each other for a while. My visit with my Dad to see Sue and Phil in Vero Beach in 2016 was another incredible time. As others have said, Sue was such a phenomenal planner, organizer, and hostess. Sue will be missed by many! Sending you love and prayers.

I was so sorry to learn of Sue’s death. I was a freshman at Hanover when she was a junior and we eventually became sorority sisters. I always admired Sue and thought of her as someone who ‘had her head on straight’ and knew what mattered in life. She was much loved and will be missed. Wishing you all peace and loving memories.

All our love. Tom and Molly

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
