SueB—the Person, the Event, the Endowment
by Marjory J. Sente
A word frequently has multiple meanings and can bring to mind different images. SueB is one of those words for me.
Eleven years ago, when I lost my sister Susan B. Newby, I was devastated by the tragedy of losing her. One never expects to lose a younger sister, especially in a mysterious and absolutely unexplainable accident that occurred while she was riding horseback with her husband.
I soon learned that a couple of Sue’s friends called her SueB from the years she played soccer with them, and they wanted to do something in her memory. We planted trees, but that was not enough. So Leslie Hempe, Teresa Andrew and I organized the first SueB Memorial Stroll in 2010 with the proceeds to benefit the WCA.
