She will be best remembered as “Mom” to everyone, and she loved spoiling them with endless baked goods. She also enjoyed time spent with her cat, Max, watching the Detroit Tigers, and listening to the singer, Shaggy.

Sue was preceded in death by her life partner, Jeff Farr.

In keeping with Sue’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held later this spring. Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorial contributions to the Skinner Family Discretionary Fund, c/o JoAnne Lane, 205 West Sherman Street, Caro, MI 48723. The family was assisted with these arrangements by the Ransford Collon Funeral Home of Caro. Friends may share memories, thoughts, and prayers online at
