It was with great sadness that we learned about the passing of Sue (Schlessman) Duncan an Alpha Phi Chapter sister on June 1st; a few weeks before her 89th birthday. Sue has been active with the DAC for many years and enjoyed playing in the LINKS bridge groups. To honor Sue for her many contributions to DAC and international Gamma Phi Beta, we present the Sue Duncan Emerging Leader Award at Founders Day to recognize a Theta chapter member for her leadership potential. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 13th, at noon at Pinehurst Country Club, 6255 W Quincy Ave, Denver. There is a nice obituary at: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/denverpost/obituary.aspx?n=susan-maude-duncan-schlessman&pid=193320589. Donations may be made to a charity of your choice including the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
