Sue Jefferies, 82, Winona Lake, died Monday, Dec. 12, 2022, surrounded by her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, at Lutheran Kosciusko Hospital, Warsaw.

On Oct. 26, 1958, in Warsaw, Sue was united in marriage to Larry Jefferies. Together, they shared 57 years before his death in August 2016. The two spent their lives raising their two daughters, Laura and Aimee.
A loving and giving person, Sue was a friend to all and loved to help those who needed it most. She was always coming up with innovative ideas to make other’s lives easier. Sue was very crafty and enjoyed her time at Grace Village making pillowcases through Ryan’s Case for Smiles. She also enjoyed the euchre club at Grace Village. As the “queen of bedazzle,” Sue loved to shop at Goodwill for herself and could never go anywhere without her lipstick and jewelry. Most of all, Sue loved her family and treasured time spent with them.
