Obituary for Sue A. Hunter

Sue Hunter went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 30th, at the age of 77. Sue was born in Hastings, Michigan on December 21, 1945 to Edith and John Miller. Sue grew up on a farm, and enjoyed riding her horse to school and through the fields of Middleville. She graduated from Thornapple-Kellogg High School in 1964, where she was crowned homecoming queen. She married Gordon Timm soon after graduating from high school, and had three lovely children.

Sue was a very hard worker, who made loyalty a priority. One of her first jobs was modeling for Steelcase. She then worked many years as a bus driver for Thornapple-Kellogg Public Schools. Over an extended period of time, she was involved with horse shows, and taking her children to 4H. She went on to work for the US Post Office as a rural carrier for 25 years. Sue really enjoyed this job, because she could connect with the community. She absolutely loved to meet her postal route patrons, and they loved her welcoming demeanor. After retirement, she enjoyed a life of leisure and took up boating. She was a proud member of The Saginaw Bay Yacht Club. She would travel on long, overnight excursions along the shores of Lake Huron. Sue also traveled to Hawaii, Florida, Alabama, and occasionally would visit one of her son’s in Maine. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. Sue attended St. Paul Lutheran Church, where she volunteered as the treasurer.

She was predeceased by her husband, Melvin Hunter, mother, Edith Miller, father, John Miller, son-in-law, Paul Peterson, and grandson Bradley Timm.

She is survived by her brothers David (Mary) and Al Miller, sons Eric (Elaine) and David Timm, her daughter, Kris Peterson, step-daughters Beth (Rodger) Nugent and Cynthia (David) Rotherford, grandchildren Ryan MacLeod (Ann Sun), Jordan Timm (Gabi Nearing), Camden MacLeod (Melanie Hill), Garrett (Hannah) Hubbell, Jon Hubbell, Andrea and Jessie Peterson, Amelia and Evelyn Nugent, Francis, Benedict, Joseph, and Isidore Rutherford, and great-grandchild Lyla MacLeod.

Visitations will be held at Beeler-Gores Funeral Home in Middleville on Friday, August 5th from 5:00-7:00 PM and at Middleville United Methodist church on Saturday, August 6th from 10:00-11:00 AM with the memorial service following at 11:00 AM. There will be a luncheon proceeding at the church.
