Mary “Sue” Thomas, 87, entered eternal life with Jesus Christ on March 6, 2019. Born in Mission, Texas, Sue moved to Phoenix as a child and attended Phoenix Union High School, Arizona State College and Glendale Community College. She was a social worker and also did volunteer work in her community.
Sue was married for 43 years to James Henry Thomas, who was the love of her life. She is the forever Mom of Jim Thomas [Lori], Susan Blanchard [Richard], and Patricia Svoboda. Sue was also the proud and loving Grandmother, Great-grandmother, Aunt, Roll Model, and Mentor to many cherished family members. Sue loved her family and friends above everything else, including flowers, travel, and even her dogs! We were all profoundly blessed to have her in our lives. Be especially kind to someone today and think of Sue.
