Sue possibly worked at Police HQ for several years & also worked at South Region Command when it was based at Sutherland before becoming an Executive Officer at Lake Illawarra LAC ( Warilla ) – but not Oak Flats I believe.

She retired about 2002 and was living at Kanahooka for a number of years before moving to Queensland where her daughter is living.

Sue was diagnosed with Cancer of the lung about 2015 and passed away on the evening of 2 March 2017 in Qld.

She is to be buried alongside of her parents at Rookwood Cemetery.

You were a lovely woman Sue.


Sue was also a proficient Ball Room dancer.  Her daughter was also involved in Ball Room dancing and Sue was also a judge in that field.
