VANDERHOFF Sue L. Sue L. (Borgess) Vanderhoff went to be with the Lord peacefully on April 10, 2010. Born on March 19, 1945, she was preceded in death by her parents, Charles F. and Elinor M. Borgess, and her brother, James. She leaves behind her loving husband of 43 years, Jerry M., a daughter, Julie (James) Price of Pemberville; a son, Steven of Indianapolis, and three grandchildren, Delaney, Calvin and Jasper. After graduating from McAuley High School in 1963, she became an L.P.N. and married Jerry in 1966. After many years of nursing, she and Jerry pursued a karaoke business which they enjoyed for several years. She loved gardening, traveling, singing karaoke and spending time with her grandchildren. Friends may visit the family on Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. at Maison-Dardenne-Walker Funeral Home, Maumee. A memorial Mass of the Resurrection will be held on Wednesday at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Maumee at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family request that donations be made to Promedica Hospice. Condolences may be sent to the family at: When I come to the end of my journey; and I travel my last weary mile; Just forget, if you can, that I ever frowned; and remember only my smile. Forget unkind words I have spoken; Remember some good I have done. Forget that I ever had heartache; and remember I’ve had lots of fun. Forget that I’ve stumbled and blundered; and sometimes fell by the way. Remember I have fought some hard battles; and won at the close of the day. Then forget to grieve for my going, I wouldn’t have you sad for a day. But in Summer just gather some flowers, and remember the place where I lay. And come in the shade of the evening; when the sun paints the sky in the west. Stand for a few moments beside me; and remember only my best. Author unknown
