Sue worked for most of her life as an administrative assistant for counseling and foster care organizations associated with United Methodist Youthville. The welfare and education of children was extremely important to Sue. She was also a talented cake decorator who created beautiful cakes for countless people’s special occasions. Sue enjoyed quilting, walking 5K events and playing in the bell choir. She especially enjoyed her family; they were her everything.

Sue passed away on November 15, 2021, at Village Manor in Abilene. She is preceded in death by her father and three infant children.

My sympathies to the Utterback Family. Sue had a magical way with cakes. She made my wedding cake. It was beautiful.

Sue was one of the kindest humans I have ever known. She had to deliver to me once a message that a loved one had died. She was so gentle and warm. And there was nothing that compares to a Sue cake. Sue was a treasure.
