Family Tribute:Sue Sauer was a remarkable woman. As a Managing Director in Marsh’s Chicago office, she loved life. She devoted herself to her job, and always looked for ways to mentor others. One of the proudest moments in her career came when she was recognized by “The Academy of Women Achievers of the YWCA of New York” in 1996, receiving an award as one of the top women achievers in business. While the award was richly deserved, it was humbly accepted by Sue, who always looked for ways to share her accomplishments with others.
She traveled, she entertained, she played an ever-improving game of golf and she did beautiful needlework. She was a wonderful friend, who always shared a note, a call or a kind word to lift the spirit of others.
Her relationship with her family was loving, giving her 5 nephews an opportunity to be spoiled by an aunt who always looked for ways to treat them as special people. Whether it was a “care package,” a prized golf shirt or a trip to a faraway island, Sue always provided for her nephews in a unique and enviable fashion.
As a sister and a daughter, she shared love easily and regularly. Her warm smile, her concern for others and her devotion to her family was second to none. Her travels took her to unique and exotic places, but Sue always managed to bring back just the right trinket for each of us. Phone calls and letters kept her close, even when the miles kept us at a distance.
While we all know that Sue is in a better place, we will forever miss her enthusiastic outlook on life, her warm smile, and her amazing spirit. We were blessed to have her as long as we did, and will treasure each and every memory we have of her.
