Dorothy Sue Hartker passed away, peacefully, on May 28, 2023, at the age of 78 in Clermont, Florida. She was born on December 21, 1944, in Jefferson City, Missouri. Sue was a speech pathologist and dedicated her life to helping others. She received a BA from Michigan State University. Sue is also a graduate of Grand Blanc High School.
Sue was a fun, adventurous and kind person who enjoyed dancing, singing and acting, was full of laughter and rarely at a loss for words.
