wedding of mutual friends. John followed her home and asked her out on a date. They were married

two years later and had three children, Mary (Harvey) Feinstein of Kernville, CA, John Behling Jr.

Sue enjoyed watching her grandchildren grow and flourish. Amy Feinstein of Kauai, HI, was the first

followed by McKenzie, Hannah and Louisa "Lulu" Behling of Chicago, IL. After her children were grown

and out on their own, Sue became a travel agent and she and John took many trips all over the world.

and participated in many activities including a gourmet cooking club, bridge, Mahjong and the Ladies of
