STERLING, Va. Our dear sister Sue succumbed to her cancer battle after a year and 4 months.
Born Nov. 1, 1954 in Arlington. Second daughter to Frank and Rosalie Genduso of Falls Church. Sue grew up in Falls Church and attended Walnut Hill Elementary, J.G. Whittier Jr. High, and Falls Church High School.
As a young girl, she studied dance and performed in numerous ballet and tap dancing recitals. She swam in competitions on the Woodley Swim Team in the Northern Virginia Swimming League and won numerous medals and ribbons for her proficiency in the back stroke. She played softball in the Falls Church Girls Softball League and continued to play on the JV and Varsity Teams in High School. After graduating High School, she lived for several years in Sunnyvale, Calif. She returned to Virginia and lived in the town of Herndon for many years.
She married 1st Sergeant David W. Twigg, U.S. Army (Retired,) of Cumberland, in 2000, and they resided in Sterling. She had a green thumb and enjoyed gardening. Every summer, she grew a spectacular garden overflowing with vegetables. It was a special gift.
