Born August 5, 1947 in Nelson, B.C. It is with immense sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Sue on July 11, 2020 in Escondido, California.

In 1978, she married Bob Mayfield and they made their home in the San Diego area. For a short time they lived in Salt Lake City where their son Scott was born.
