I always enjoyed Sue. No matter how badly she felt she was always kind and cheerful, a true lady. I always looked forward to seeing her when I saw her name in my appointment book. We both loved the theater and through her I discovered the Hale Theater in Salt Lake, which she loved and now my family enjoys. I will miss her gentle manor and beautiful smile. I am so sorry.

Sue was a good friend. We enjoyed many fun evening with her at our DUP meetings.

Our friendship goes back much farther than that. She taught our children at Evanston High School. She was a wonderful teacher and class advisor. We have a great deal of respect for her ability to communicate and teach. She will be missed greatly.

Love Val and Lani Tyler

Sue was one of my mother's dearest childhood friends. Whenever she visited my mother, I always thought she was so classy and fun. I was so lucky to know someone that was such a huge part of my mom's youth and see for myself why my mom loved being with her. My mom has another guardian angel looking over her now with her dear life-long friend watching out for her and her spirit will live forever in the family she dearly loved. Rest in peace, Sue. Love and prayers to all Summers, Hales and all her loved ones. My mom would be in the front row if she could travel back to Kemmerer/Evanston - but we will be thinking of her on Friday as you give her an amazing tribute to a life well lived. Angela Dougherty

I am sorry to hear of Sue's passing. She was one of my best friends when we were kids and in high school. I've tried to make contact with her lately--sadly, not successful. She was a wonderful person and will be missed by many. She was a person who accepted the tough stuff , dealt with it and moved forward while still finding joy. I've always looked up to her. She will now find peace. My condolences to her family.

Sue was my FBLA Advisor and a mentor for the four years that I attended EHS. She helped me deal with a difficult time and always was there to listen and encourage me. I appreciate everything she did for me as she accompanied me around the state and the country as I represented the Evanston and Wyoming FLBA chapters. She had the patience of Job with me and others and would always be the voice of reason and a positive influence on all of us. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude for all she did for me.
