Last week, the chapter lost a dear friend and one of my favorite people. Suzy Fenton passed away on the 15th due to complications from a stroke. Her obituary can be found here at http://bit.ly/X0c5G0
For those that didn’t have the pleasure to know Suzy, she had a remarkable life. She was recruited into a special women’s engineering program at PSU in ’42 sponsored by the airplane manufacturer Curtis Wright. She worked there for two years before enlisting in the Navy for several years. She then returned to PSU to finish her BS in Aeronautical Engineering in ’49 where she met Wayne. With all due respect to Sheryl Sanberg, what Suzy did before 1950 tops my list of achievements 🙂
Suzy and Wayne moved to Sacramento shortly after graduation where she taught at Sac State for 38 years. Suzy was an officer at the chapter for many years and was on the board of directors up until her passing. She and Wayne have been to every event, every chapter meeting, and most every game as long as I’ve been here. Suzy, you will very much be missed! Wayne, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Suzy’s services will be limited to family but the family is considering a celebration event at a date to be determined.
