Sue Stivers lived to build up and encourage others

By Dylan Gentry, Adair County Extension Agent
for Family & Consumer Sciences

The Adair County Homemakers are saddened by the passing of Sue C. Stivers. Sue served as an Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences for 43 years. Sue is remembered by her homemakers for her loving kindness and outstanding devotion to the Extension Homemakers organization. I have served in her former role for only six months. In that short time, I have heard countless testimonies of her selflessness and dedication.

Sue was personable, remembering the names of all 300+ Adair County Homemakers under her care. Homemakers comment frequently on how quick she was to visit or send a card when times got tough.
