My heart is broken. Sue was such a big part of my family's life. Without her encouragement my son Michael would never become the man and the musician he is to day. She taught me so much too. I learned things I never knew because of all her life adventures and achievements.
I will miss you terribly Sue. I always hoped we could make up for lost time. Rest in peace.
I am truly sorry for your loss. I had know sue for the past 6 years. Every time I saw Sue she always welcomed me with open arms. Sue was such a passionate teacher who always invested in each and every student. There are no words for such a loss for an amazing woman. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with your family

There are truly no words on this shocking loss of Dear Sue. She was a wonderful teacher and colleague and left a great impression on all who had the pleasure of knowing her. She was dedicated to her students and to Intermediate North as she was always there working with the kids. Sue always took the time to say hello to me when our paths crossed in school and always asked about not only me but my daughter. I had the pleasure of walking out of school with her on the last day talking about another year done and heading into summer. May she Rest In Peace and May you have the comfort in knowing she was a wonderful person who has touched so many lives and I am grateful to have been touched by her kindness and my daughter by her teachings in the classroom. She will be greatly missed!
Mrs . Langhirt had a big heart when it came to her students . I am so deeply sorry for your loss . Rest Easy Mrs . Langhirt 🙏🏽
My thoughts and prayers are with you. May you be comforted by fond memories of your wife and mother. Sue was a true student advocate. She was always willing to give to students in need. Sue gave up her lunch time so that her students could come to her room during lunch when they did not feel comfortable going to the lunch room. Whenever a student of mine had an exceptional need of encouragement and love, I recommended Sue's cycle. I knew they would make friends, be sheltered from bullying and feel special when she was their cycle teacher. I loved Sue as a teacher and as a friend. She would always shoot from the hip. I new I could count her her for honesty and integrity. She gave so much of herself to TRIN, the students and the staff. Part of her will live on as Mrs. Langhirt in the hearts of so many students and coworkers at TRIN.
Fondly, Mary Woelfer
I met Sue when i started at IN north almost two years ago. She was always so kind to me and she loved what she did. I am so sorry for your loss. She will truly be missed by all. You and your family and are in my thoughts and prayers.
Dan, Chuck, and Sara and families,
I can't even begin to console your heartbreak. Your wife/mom was truly a wonderful person. She was an irreplaceable part of TRIN. I will miss her. Sending you hugs! May the memories help ease your pain.
Mrs. Langhirt will always be remembered as a teacher who was caring and compassionate. I always enjoyed exchanging pleasantries with when our paths crossed during the school day.

So sorry to hear this news she was a great teacher and a great person. My prayers go out to all of her family and friends. RIP Mrs. Langhirt
All of my prayers go to all of her family and I hope that she rests in peace. I can not begin to imagine the loss of a loved one and all of the pain that her family is felling. I was lucky enough to be in Mrs. Langhirt’s class. She was so sweet to all of the kids in her classes. Rest In Peace Mrs. Langhirt you were a wonderful teacher.
My thoughts and prayers go to her family. I’m very sorry for your loss. She was a very caring and helpful person and would always make me and my class laugh. I’m very grateful for everything she has done for me and I’m very grateful to have been in her homeroom and that she was my social studies. She was a great social studies teacher and always made sure that we understood the lessons. I’m very upset about this and she will always be remembered and will be missed by many and me included. I’m very glad I got to spend my 8th grade year with her. May she Rest In Peace ❤️
Sue was a wonderful lady, friend and colleague. I have worked with dear Sue for many many years. We shared thought feelings ideas and much more. I am so very sorry for your loss. Sad sad and shocking news. My most sincere condolences. Thank you Sue for the support, caring and friendship.
I will always remember that she helped me through the hardest times of my life at the time she was my 8th grade teacher and she was so sweet and wanted everyone to do well I loved her as a student loves his teachers who they look up to she will be missed 💔
Dan, Chuck, and Sara,
I just heard the news today that we lost dear Sue, and I feel such a sense of sadness at losing such a wonderful friend. I am so sorry for your families loss.
Sue... I had the pleasure of working with you for almost 15 years at TRIN, and I honestly can't think of a more loving, caring, and compassionate person than you to have had, not just as a colleague, but as a friend. When my car battery died during Hurricane Sandy, because I was using my car to charge my phone, I posted on Facebook, my rotten luck (lol), and no sooner did I post it, you called me and said you and your son were coming over to my house to jump start my car, and that you both did, and I was so grateful. I'm embarrassed to say, I was only able to help you out 1 time, when you needed a ride home from work. When my Pugina was getting married (lol) online, you were a good sport & had Lady & Duchess, be part of the bridal party. After I lost my Pugrina, you were one of the 1st people who sought me out at work, and offered me your condolences and words of wisdom about carrying on after the loss, and later, ordered me a shirt with a pug on it, to bring up my spirits. The stories could go and on about your generosity, but even more than that, I marvel at your strength and courage during times that I can only imagine their toughness to be. I will miss you my friend, rest in Heavenly peace.
I am so saddened to hear of the news that your beloved mother has passed on. Sue was always so kind to me and very kind to my daughter as well. When my daughter was 15 she had to have her ovary removed and Sue gave to me a beautiful card and stuffed schnauzer for my daughter because she knew how much she loved her dogs. She had given her a beautiful musical necklace when she learned she would major in music education in college. She heard I was having leg cramps and put a bottle of magnesium and a banana in my school mailbox and told me I was deficient in potassium and magnesium. That was Sue. Generous and thoughtful. She always made herself available for any and everything. She was kind, thoughtful and caring. I will miss her visiting me at school and making me laugh. Rest in eternal glory Sue.I adored you. Rest well my friend. --- Kelly Zuzic
Rest In Peace 😪
Mrs L was such a nice person and I would always see her when I went to the bathroom during lunch to sign out, she would always make me and my friends laugh all the time. And when I found out what happened; tears slowly can down my eyes although she wasn’t my teacher, the few times I saw her and talked to her were great
When I found out the news, I was truly heartbroken. All my prayers and thoughts go out to the family. I remember when she would always make my class laugh. I am also so grateful I was able to be a part of her life and be student in her classroom. She always made difficult topics in social studies easier for us to understand by breaking it down to levels that would make sense to us. Beside her being a great teacher, she was also one of the most caring and giving person I’ve ever met and she will be remembered💗
So sorry for your loss , may she RIP 🙏🏻
Im going to miss you i have so many good memorys with you and i loved her so much she was always there for me. You are in my prayers😭❤
All my love
I am so sorry for your loss. I am shocked and saddened. May memories console you in your time of sadness.
Dan and Sara,
I can’t believe this news. Sue was the most caring and giving person. I loved her like she was my 2nd mother. You are in my prayers.
All my love,
