Virginia Sue Heringer (Hardwicke) passed away peacefully in the company of family and friends, December 2, 2009, due to complications resulting from knee replacement surgery. Born in Clarksville, Arkansas, February 13, 1938, she moved to Southern California with her mother, Bernice, at age 19.
As a budget analyst for the California Employment Development Department, Sue worked in California’s Central Valley, and then later in Sacramento where she retired after 25 years of service to the state. While in Sacramento, Sue was active in various civic activities to include the 50-50 club, wherein she served as its president in 1987.
Sue moved to Murrieta, California in 1998 and enjoyed the friendships she made while traveling, playing bingo and bunco; working out at the local karate studio where she had earned her Green Belt, and was preparing to test for her Purple Belt. Sue was very active in the Riverside-San Diego area Boston Terrier rescue: Boston Brigade Rescue. She served as the organization’s chief financial officer, treasurer, and primary fundraiser. She owned 2 Boston Terriers herself, but managed to “foster” up to as many as 3 additional dogs at a time!
Sue is predeceased by her eldest son, John. She is survived by son, Roy, and 3 grandchildren, all living in the San Diego area. A celebration of life will be held February 6, 2010, 11:00-3:00, at the Temecula Embassy Suites, 29345 Rancho California Road, Temecula, CA 92591.
