Sue was born in Rochester, NY and received her bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Kansas.   She was employed in the UWM Peck School of the Arts for over twenty years, first in the Art Department and, since 1995, in the PSOA Business Office.  She ended her UWM career as the Assistant Dean for Budget and Personnel for the school.

Sue is greatly missed by all of us who worked with her, and we wanted to have an opportunity to gather and share our memories.  We hope you will join us in the celebration of Sue’s life on December 13, 2013.
