Born December 11, 1930 in Frostburg to the late Carl A. Skidmore and Agnes (Finzel) Skidmore. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother, Carl D. Skidmore and many aunts and uncles.
Sue attended Catherman’s Business School and retired from the General Service Administration as an office clerk in Washington, DC. She enjoyed gardening, bowling, cooking, helping others, and going to the theater. In Tacoma Park, she had an open-door policy which earned her the name “Holiday Inn”. Sue was well known for her excellent cooking and invited many into her home for home cooked meals. Eventually she shared her talents and volunteered at Meals on Wheels. Her love of travel took her many places, such as the USA, Ireland, Switzerland, Bermuda, Canada, and Alaska, however Ireland was her favorite, “We ate fish and chips till it came out my ears and the beer was very good!” she quoted in a July interview with the Connection Frostburg Village.
