Sue was born to Orvis and Dovie (nee Barnes) Smith and raised in the fine state of Tennessee. She married the late Robert L. Zugbaum and flourished in the great state of Wisconsin.

Wonderful mother to Cheryl (Dennis) Valk, Keith (Judy) Zugbaum, Ken Zugbaum, and Kevin Zugbaum. Grandmother to Steven, Shelby, Cherish, Amber, Harley, Trevor and Warren; and great-grandmother to Nolan Garman and soon arriving baby Garman. Mother in name and spirit to Michelle Zugbaum, Misty Mayrand and Elizabeth Prescott. She will also be dearly missed by her family and friends in Tennessee.

She was the president and founder of Industrial Equipment and Service Inc. in Milwaukee and a member of Still Waters Community United Methodist Church. Sue was a friend and confidant to countless people that were fortunate enough to know her.
