    Wow, sad! RIP Suzy. I worked with her at the Walker in the 90s.

    RIP Suzy…I am so sad to hear this news. I worked with Suzy at the Walker and also shared some space with her in the 90’s at Lyndale Studios which is across from Soo Vac. I hope that her vision and commitment lives on. I know I will always remember her smile and words of encouragement!
