Sue Gorman Wills, age 90, of Evansville, Ind., left us quietly on Thursday, March 25, 2010, at the Evansville Protestant Home surrounded by her closest friends. She couldn’t have asked for anything more.
She was born and raised in Vincent, and moved to Evansville when she was 18.
Sue spent 60 years in her current home. She was a long-time secretary retiring from the Evansville State Hospital after 20 years of service. She enjoyed writing and continued to write in her later years. She was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church.
Sue was president of the Vanderburgh Humane Society and gave time and money to help animals in need. She studied the positive effects that animals have on the elderly and sick as a lifelong hobby. She was full of spunk, humor, willingness to live, and good energy until the time she passed. Sue always found humor in everything and loved to make people laugh.
She was preceded in death by her brothers, Clarence and Hugh Gorman and parents, Mr. and Mrs. Gorman.
Sue is survived by her best friend, Jenny Bruns; Eva the Dachshund, her most precious companion; and Mama Kitty.
Sue’s family would like to thank the Evansville Protestant Home staff and Vista Care Hospice, the Thomas family, and her pen pals for their love, support, and encouragement.
Services will be at 2 p.m. Monday, March 29, 2010, at Alexander East Chapel, Evansville, Ind., officiated by the Rev. Allen W. Amstutz with burial at Park Lawn Cemetery. Friends may visit Sunday from 1-6 p.m. at the funeral home.
Memorial contributions may be made to a favorite charity for the care and protection of animals.
