Sweet Aunt Sunnee.

Everything you would ever expect a gal named Sunnee to be and then multiply it by 100., that is how she is. Every visit we had was special. Our last outing was to get my dad Garments at the Deseret store in Salt lake. She was careful

To get him the comfy kind that would last. We talked about how people were changing and how it was as if this change was not for the good. She told me how her truck had been broken into and that the things that were taken would be of no use to anyone but her. We laughed about the thief’s surprise when they opened the backpack. She had several jokes about what they may say. She made lite of it but I knew it was frustrating knowing someone took her personal things.. I have to say that a lady like Sunnee is a very rare find. My mother loved her like a sister. She was always so good to us as kids. Her legacy of goodness can be seen in her children and her very precious grand children. My cousins were so blessed to have her for their mother.. Uncle Joe loved her so very much. She is his partner for all eternity. How wonderful and comforting. For now I bet she is having a ball cracking her witty comebacks and making everyone laugh. I will treasure my memories of her beautiful smile and constant love. Thank Heaven for Sunnee E. Limb I love you all.

Sunnee was always a wonderful Grandma to Josh and Janae. She was always generous and thoughtful with her time and gifts she gave to them over the years. She helped them with school projects, sewing projects, and always had gift baskets and notes and cards my kids will keep forever remembering her. Josh and Janae always knew Sunnee loved them and she showed it in many different ways throughout their lives. She was a wonderful grandparent to them, and I will forever be grateful for the role she had in their lives.

She will be missed. Mom used to call Sunnee and talk for hours, usually at night. I’m sure they’re catching up now!

Love you!
