Teaching next to Mrs. Callahan for the past 15 years, I got to see first hand what a wonderful person she was. She was fiesty and fun loving. She was beautiful lady with a heart of gold. She was devoted to her students and class. Her love for Charlie and Charlie Sue was very evident. Never seeking recognition, year after year, she gave to many charities and community causes. Sue will be greatly missed by the Daniel Boone faculty, staff, and students. May God give Sue’s family and friends comfort, strength, and peace over the coming days.
