About SueB

SueSusan Elaine Brubaker Newby died in 2008 during a mysterious horseback riding incident. After her death, family and friends began to realize that SueB – the nickname everyone used – very likely was involved in an abusive marriage.

SueB’s sister Marjory Sente and friends Leslie Hampe and Teresa Andrew turned to the WCA as a way to honor Sue’s life and raise awareness about the issue of domestic violence.

“Almost everyone knows that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. Few, however, know that one in four women will be a victim of domestic violence during her life,” said Marjory. “This staggering statistic needs more attention. Domestic violence is pervasive in our society.”

All proceeds from the event support the SueB Endowment Fund at the WCA. For more information or to register, please visit www.wcaboise.org.
