Loving mother of Jeremy (Kerrie) and Nicholas (Rachel). Adoring grandmother ('Moma') of Andrew, Emma, Ben, Chloe and Olivia. Much-loved sister of Michael Secker and sister-in-law Janet Secker in New Zealand.
Sue was born in Palmerston North, New Zealand and entered the teaching profession when she was 20. She taught primary school in England, Scotland, New Zealand and Australia before emigrating to Toronto in 1968 with Thomas. Here she continued to teach with the Toronto District School Board at several schools in the east and west ends of the city, retiring after over 25 years of dedicated service.
After her retirement, Sue volunteered at the Art Gallery of Ontario, was a member of the Women’s Art Institute, sang in several choirs and enjoyed traveling throughout Europe and her much-loved homeland of New Zealand.
