We were saddened to hear that Sue passed away after a long illness on 11 May 2015.
Sue was first introduced to SEDA around 1992 by long standing member Guy Stevens who suggested she brought her son Steve who was 14 at the time to a SEDA meeting to get advice about becoming a DJ.
Sue very quickly got involved in the committee side of SEDA and with her accountancy background she became Treasurer & Membership Secretary in 1996 and served in this post for 12 years.
Sue loved SEDA and all that it stood for, she loved DJing and being apart of a function. She was always willing to help a fellow member out. In the late nineties she drove and roadie’ d for John Clancy. When both her boys Steve & Ben were able to be self sufficient in their DJ work and able to drive themselves to gigs, Sue & Brian decided to run their own disco which was very successful. With Sue choosing the music and Brian fronting and running the disco. It was a total partnership, they both loved what they did and especially liked to do children’s Parties/School discos and older birthday parties. They accepted work from Bee Jay Entertainments amongst others, receiving many glowing compliments and repeat bookings.
She loved her holidays and cruises. With Brian she ran her own bed & Breakfast business, an on-line book store, and traded at many Sunday Markets throughout Kent. She was a lovely lady and she will be sadly missed by Brian , her boys , grandchildren, family and her friends at SEDA.
