Craig Blair Former Senate Presidents Cole and Carmichael

Statements from Senate President Craig Blair, former Senate Presidents Carmichael and Cole on passing of former Senator Sue Cline

“I was shocked to learn this morning of the passing of former Senator Sue Cline. Sue was one of the most dedicated members I have ever served with in the West Virginia Legislature. She was a fighter and a tireless advocate for the families of her district. Her love of her state and her country were second to none. My thoughts and prayers are with her family as they remember and celebrate her life in the coming days.” — Senate President Craig Blair

“Sue Cline embodied and personified the true essence of a dedicated public servant. She represented the citizens of Wyoming, Raleigh, and McDowell counties with fever, passion, and love. Her contributions to progress and opportunity in West Virginia were total and complete. Her most endearing trait was an enthusiastic, yet quiet faith in God. It is her faith that gives comfort to all who loved and respected Senator Cline that she is now with her heavenly Father.” — Former Senate President Mitch Carmichael

“From the moment she arrived to the West Virginia Senate, Sue Cline poured her heart and soul into her service. Her kind heart and her strong sense of community guided her in every way. She was a valuable part of a team that helped to change West Virginia. Sue will be sadly missed by all who were blessed to know her, and my prayers are with her family and friends during this time.” — Former Senate President Bill Cole
