Though we only met once, when her beautiful daughter Dierdre married my nephew Matthew, it was hard not to respond to her kind and welcoming nature. She was beloved by her children and her grandchildren (many of these beautiful photos tell that story) and she will be very sorely missed, by those lucky enough to have known her. Godspeed, Susan, your love and spirit will long survive you.

Sue was a wonderful, caring person. She was a active voter registration chairperson on the board of directors of the League of Women Voters. She was a tireless social activist on many causes such as women's rights, gun violence and always registering voters wherever people gathered. She was a model of activism for all the league members. Her vest and shirt full of buttons will be missed.

Her warm nature and kindness impacted us all. I wish her family and friends comfort as the loss of Sue affects everyone she met.

Sue was a marvelous new friend when I joined LWV in 2017. Her tireless efforts to register voters and advocate for social justice were a magnificent example for all members at the League. I’m so proud to call her friend, and will truly miss her positive energy at every event we attended. Sue, love you girl, you earned your place in our hearts ❤️

Sending my love and care to Sue's family and all of her loved ones.
Fabulous, wonderful memories of working with Sue on community advocacy and feminist causes during my KC time (1990-1996). Blessed to continue to keep in touch and to get back 2 years ago to their annual holiday gathering. Thank you for being in my life. Laura Frey

I was blessed to know Sue from League of Women Voters-KC, Jackson, Clay, Platte. Sue was an energetic, tireless worker for voting, democracy, and peace. I will miss her enthusiasm and love of community. I send love, comfort, and hugs to her family. God bless you.

Sue brought a spark of joy to every meeting and activity. Her feminist and issue buttons and T-shirts from decades of work for social justice helped define her as a woman on a mission. She, and I, and many of our contemporaries worked diligently for the Equal Rights Amendment (which has yet to pass in Missouri, sigh). "We'll get it one of these days," she'd say optimistically. She and Tim welcomed me to their home for holiday dinners with lively conversation with other friends. She organized voter registration activities, and through the League of Women Voters we registered voters all over the city and at Royals games. And if you're wondering, the Chiefs weren't as welcoming. She is such a wonderful role model who always reminded us of the need to keep working on issues and projects. I hope that all of those organ donor recipients find they have not only a chance at a new life, but also a new or renewed interest in social justice.
