  1. Sue’s passing was a very sad day for all our family. She put up with endless Payne gatherings, always laughing at all the shenanigans! She had an infectious smile and endearing laugh! She was about the only person in Owensboro that Rich could talk about Ohio sports with, he loved it. You are so loved and missed pretty lady. Check on Betty Jo for us! Much love and many hugs to all of the family.
