Mrs. Elinkowski… She was my 2nd grade teacher, my 5th grade teacher and as I grew up she became a friend. She always had a way with words, quick whit and she always had you on your toes. I remember so many things I learned in the classroom with her that I have carried with me all of my life, like spelling Elinkowski, since it was extra credit on spelling tests. She always would tell us, do as I say not as I do. And instead of telling us No…. She made it a song, N… O… spells No… I still sing that quite often. She has always been in my life, she always had a hand in taking care of me and she always had a hand in taking care of my family. Sue is a very special woman and I will miss her, the out of the blue calls just to make sure I am ok, the check ins when she knows I need it but mostly I will miss the beautiful friendship that she and my mom had for so many years.

I had Mrs. Elinkowski for multiple subjects in 6th grade. Her character and strength spoke volumes. She worked hard to mold the minds of younger students. I’m extremely sad to hear of her passing. She was one of those teachers that knew how to make a tangible difference in students’ lives.

Mrs. E was a teacher who taught me at a young age that a kind heart means more than any the cruel or evil people around you. May she find peace and rest.❤️ Thank you Mrs. E for the love you shared with us all.

She was a wonderful teacher. Two of my kids had her. She always had a smile on her face and saw the good in each kid.

I live in Florida so I'm unable to attend. I was a part of St. Mary for 20 years. In that time, I got to see the impact Sue had on her fellow staff members and the families. She will be missed by many and was loved by all. Prayers to the family for strength thru this trying time. Her and Ron are together again with no suffering and in God's presence.

Dear Ryan, Tara, and Family, Thank you so much for sharing Sue with us! She was an amazing teacher and had the great capacity to love our kids as if they were her very own! No matter what, she always had a smile and a positive thought for us combined with a measure of her deep, abiding faith in God! Mrs. “E” was one in a million and will be missed by all of us! Our prayers continue for all of you during this most difficult time!

Sue was my dad's cousin. She always was so supportive and kind to our family, and she was truly a prayer warrior for our son Teddy. Many prayers went to heaven from her and her school children, and she'll always hold a special spot in my heart.
