Compassionate, kind, generous, considerate, practical, fun and loving are words that come to mind when we talk of Sue at WOMEN’S Healthworks
WOMEN’S Healthworks will always hold Sue in the highest esteem. One of the most important and happy tasks our organisation performed was to bestow “Life Membership” to Sue on Friday 7 August 2009. This event was attended by 50 people, including, family, past colleagues, WOMEN’S Healthworks staff and Board members, all of whom considered Sue a friend.
Sue worked tirelessly for women’s health for more than three decades. She touched the lives of hundreds of women, including work colleagues and the women she supported through her work.
With qualifications as a nurse, midwife and nurse practitioner, Sue gave generously for over 35years to improving women’s health and the nursing profession in general. She always adopted a commonsense approach to her work along with compassion and a sense of humour.
Sue retired from WOMEN’S Healthworks in December 2002 after 13 years, having played an integral role at the inception and establishment of WOMEN’S Healthworks in 1989. After she retired, Sue continued with her commitment, joining the Board and used her extensive clinical and practical skills and knowledge to make a further important contribution to the overall management and strategic planning for our service.
Sue will be sadly missed by us all. It was a privilege to know this wonderful woman.
