She graduated from Shelton High School with the class of 1978, then attended and graduated from Kearney Beauty Center in 1979. Sue worked as a cosmetologist at Touch of Class in Kearney and Carol’s Beauty Shop in Gibbon until 1980. She then began working at Baldwin Filters where she was a faithful employee for 40 years, 27 of those years she was a line supervisor. There she developed many lifelong friendships, and was loved by her coworkers and kept in touch with many of them even after retirement in 2020.

She married Duane Walker in 1985 and together they had one son, Derek Duane Walker. They moved to Minden and joined the Minden United Methodist Church. She was married to Warren Robbins on March 26, 2002.

Sue loved her nieces and nephews as if they were her own and was always thought of as the fun-loving aunt. She handmade each of their first born children baby blan- kets, even the ones not yet born. Sue was always the life of the party. She made everyone feel welcomed and special. Her smile could light up any room.

Sue enjoyed going to the lake, spending time at the family cabin at Taylor Man- or and boating. She enjoyed spending her time sewing, knitting, and scrapbooking.

But most of all she loved spending time with her family and friends, especially her grandchildren. They were her world. Blakely, Bently, Bodie, and Blaise will miss their “Neema” dearly.
