Sue was born in Calgary but her family lived in several places in southern B.C. and Vancouver before moving to Victoria when she was nine. Her family members were strong Anglicans, attending Christ Church in Cranbrook, Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver and St. Philip’s Oak Bay before coming to the Cathedral in 1958, when she was confirmed. She taught Sunday school and was a member of the Girls Auxiliary. She later helped with the kitchen ministry. Her mother sang in the choir and her father was a sidesman and served on parish council. Sue was always envious of her brother’s involvement in the Servers’ Guild under the watchful eye of Jim Robertson- they always had so much fun! Sue did her B.Ed. degree at UVic and taught in Creston for three years. There she sang with the Holy Trinity United Church choir and was a C.G.I.T. Leader. On returning to Victoria, Sue taught at St. Michaels University School for 31 years; one of the reasons she loved the school was because of the weekly Chapel service and recognition of the students’ various faiths. Sue’s passion is to travel and is always keen to learn of new places and cultures. She has wonderful memories of the Iona Pilgrimage in 2011. She works part time at Hudson's Bay to enhance her travels. Sue was a member of the adult faith formation committee for 10 years and helped organize the John Bell and Brian McLaren Conferences. She has assisted with Vacation Bible School. Currently, Sue is a member of the healing ministry and the chancel guild. An attendant at the 11:00 o’clock service, Sue enjoys the music and the liturgy the Cathedral offers.
