She taught English and reading at Platt Junior High, Boulder High and other local schools, and she especially loved her role as staff mentor for the Boulder High school newspaper, The Owl. She later worked in the banking industry as a long-time employee, fraud specialist and ubiquitous, exuberant presence at Boulder Municipal Employees Federal Credit Union. Sue was a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority, Colorado Alpha chapter; the CU Alumni Association; a former board member at St. Martin's Chamber Choir; and a supporter of The Colorado Music Festival and the Women Investing in the School of Education (WISE) at CU-Boulder.
