She was a long-time volunteer for St. Joseph's House of Hospitality and to the babies at Daystar for Medically Fragile Infants, Inc. She was a hardworking mother of 6 beautiful girls, loving grandmother of 12, well-known neighbor, and a dependable, supportive and fun-loving friend to many.

No prior calling. A Memorial Mass is planned for Thursday, February 2, 10:30 am, at Spiritus Christi Church, 121 N. Fitzhugh St., Rochester, 14614. Reception immediately following in the church's Celebration Hall. Interment will be at a later date, since Sue made prior arrangements to donate her body to the University of Rochester Medical School. The McVey family is grateful for the support and love of Sue's friends, neighbors, and family as well as the care and patience demonstrated by the Lifetime Care hospice staff and her medical team.
