Sue Sugar was the daughter of H. Saul and Wilma S. Sugar. She is survived by her brothers Alan (Gail), Joel (Anita), and David (Skye), nieces and nephews Lauree, Ami, Nicole, Danny, Alec, and Breanna, and many cousins.

Sue was born in Portland, Oregon and grew up in Detroit, Michigan. She graduated from Mumford High School (1960) and the University of Michigan (1964), where she majored in Far Eastern Studies. In her youth and adolescence, Sue was a lively and loving person who enjoyed musicals and played the piano. She studied Spanish in Saltillo, Mexico, and cherished family vacations at Windcliff House in South Haven, Michigan. From her early 20s on Sue was afflicted by mental illness, which defined the course of her life, yet she remained a caring daughter, sister, aunt, and cousin. She took pleasure in small things like going to rummage sales and finding treasures and knickknacks to send to her family. She enjoyed sharing her vivid memories of childhood in Detroit. She always took an avid interest in family history and in the lives of her beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins. The family is grateful to her parents Saul and Wilma Sugar for providing means to sustain Sue during her life, and especially to Gail and Alan Sugar for attentively managing her care, maintaining regular contact, and including her in family events.
