Carolyn “Sue” Wolfe, 70, of Bonita Springs, Fla., passed away at 8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28, 2013.
She was born Dec. 13, 1942, to Fred and Viola (Rupert) Brown in Hoopeston.
Sue is survived by her son, Jeff (Sandy) Hufford of Danville; granddaughters, Lacey Hufford, Megan Dauphinais and Jolee; and her brother, Lloyd Brown of Bonita Springs, Fla.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sons, Jerry Lee Haluska and John Robert Wolfe; sisters, Betty Earlinbach and Shirley Huber; brother, Fred Brown; and ex-husbands, Joe Hufford, Jim Haluska and John Wolfe.
A graduate of Hoopeston High School, Sue worked as a hair beautician and was the first woman to shovel coal for the Newton power plant. A woman of great faith, she was active member of every church she joined and participated in the prison ministry while living in Florida.
An artist at heart, she used her creativity to make the world around her more beautiful through her crafts, including floral arrangements made from sea shells. Sue loved her family, especially her grandchildren, and will be greatly missed.
A celebration of Sue’s life will begin at 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 1, at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center, A Life Celebration Home, in Danville, with Pastor Allan Rudie of the Faith Baptist Church officiating and burial at Sunset Memorial Park.
