Susan J. Colwell, 69 of Windsor went to be with her Lord unexpectedly on Wed.

Sue was my wonderful wife for 49 ½ years.  She was a great mother to our 4 wonderful children.  She home-school taught our children and some of our grandchildren.  She loved her family and passed away in her sleep with a heart attack caused by a broken heart from the loss of our youngest son 1 week earlier.  Sue was a great prayer warrior who spent hours praying for many, some she may of only meet once. She was a very giving Proverbs 31 wife. Because of her physical troubles, she was very limited what she could do. She spent many hours knitting prayer shawls, lap blankets and baby blankets. She was making a baby blanket for great grandchild number 5, due in the Fall, while we were in Florida with Ben, when he took ill. She was a great Christ like example to all our family and others. She was my support and encouragement in every endeavor. She helped me so much with the Awana Program for over twenty years at Windsor Bible Baptist Church. She was a member of City Church First Assembly of Binghamton, NY.   She lovingly cared for her mother the last two years of her life.
