Sue was born in Burlington VT, on January 26, 1947, daughter to the late Edward and Lena (Lavallee) Blair. She was raised and educated in Burlington graduating from Rice Memorial High School in the class of 1965. Sue worked at IBM where she met and later married the love of her life Paul Boudreau in 1967. They shared 46 years together until his passing in 2013. Paul and Sue initially made their home in Georgia Vermont later moving to Essex Junction where they raised their two daughters. Following Paul’s retirement from IBM, they moved to Davenport Florida to fulfill a lifelong dream. Upon Paul's death Sue moved back to Vermont to be closer to her family.
Sue enjoyed music, dancing, traveling, gambling, gardening, motorcycling, but mostly times with her family. Sue and Paul hosted many family gatherings at their home over the years. Sue especially loved decorating for the holidays and making everything beautiful for all to enjoy. Summer pool parties were an extra special time to be with her grandsons, who gave Sue so much joy and who she couldn't have been prouder of.
