Sue taught in Bella Coola, B.C. (1952–1954) and at Mt. Lehman Elementary, Abbotsford, B.C. (1954–1956) before serving with Congo Inland Mission (CIM) and Crossworld as a director of schools in the Congo for 35 years. Despite 2 rebellions (from which she fled with the clothes on her back), she always returned to the people she loved. Her passion was teaching children to read; she trained teachers, held seminars, and co-wrote textbooks. Sue and George enjoyed 20 years together. Sue adopted his family as her own. Connecting with the Schmidt family was important to Sue. Her brother Loyal, her in-laws, and many nieces and nephews will miss her dearly. Sue will be remembered for her bright smile, stories of adventure, genuine interest in people, love for animals and children, and concern for others to know the Lord. Her desire and prayer was “that we might please him in all that we do until we go to be with him, and we will all meet in heaven someday.”
