Sue was born on July 15, 1954 in Waterville to John and Prinella. She graduated from Waterville High School and went on to Beal College graduating with a degree in paralegal studies. In 1991, Sue was blessed to meet her wonderful partner Bob. They lived in Bob's home town of Manchester, N.H. and began their life together. Over the next 26 years the couple lived and loved life together, enjoying family and friends.
Susan had a wide and varied career, but her real passion was in the halls of the Maine State Legislature. She began her career with the law firm of Doyle & Nelson in Augusta. Susan went on to become a lobbyist, an active participant in the state and national political process and a veteran campaign worker. She worked on several campaigns including Terry Sanford's campaign for President and was a well-known figure at the Maine Legislature.
It was Susan's loyalty and generous spirit that defines who she was. For many years Susan was the political director for MSEA-SEIU Local 1989. For the past several years, Susan has been the external affairs coordinator for Maine Maritime Academy where she was passionate about the students and the mission of the organization.
