Sue is a long-time Douglas County rancher, conservationist and former DLC Board Member, who has lived in the Plum Creek Valley for decades and worked to preserve the area’s rural heritage. The presentation will include a video created in her honor. Attendees will have an opportunity to share a memory or comment about Sue, if they wish.

Nearly a native, I grew up on a cattle ranch northeast of Colorado Springs, where my lifelong love for productive land, open spaces, livestock and agriculture in general got an early spark.  I went to school and college in Virginia and Massachusetts and got my first job at the United Nations in New York. Then my husband Davis and I were married and we went to work at the Central Intelligence Agency in Washington for a few years before returning to Denver, where I taught history at Kent Denver School. In 1966 we found our beautiful old homestead in the West Plum Creek valley where we still live, and where for many years I bred Thoroughbred horses and Black Angus cattle. We have two sons ranching and farming in Montana and three grandchildren.

My community activities in Douglas County have included memberships on a library accessions committee, the county fair livestock sale committee, and the Douglas County Historic Preservation committee. I was an active 4H mom, a Plum Creek Pony Club instructor, and an original board member of CALF, the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Foundation. More recently I enjoyed being a board member of the Douglas Land Conservancy and a volunteer on two of its committees. I have also done volunteer editing for the Colorado Cattlemens’ Agricultural Land Trust.
