A tribute to Sue Stoessl
Sue Stoessl joined Find Your Feet as our Chair in 1988 and was involved until her passing in August 2013. Sue had a distinguished career and was the Head of Marketing at Channel 4 at its inception and acted as a marketing consultant to TV AM, Yorkshire TV, Associated Newspapers, News International and the British Film Institute.
Sue's dedication and service to our organisation stretched over 25 years. Her contribution during that time to Find Your Feet and the families we support around the world simply cannot be overstated. She will be sorely missed by everyone who is involved in Find Your Feet.
"Sue will be remembered as a true friend of Find Your Feet. While she was always appreciative and encouraging of our work, her own remarkable spirit served as an inspiration to each of us individually and to us as a team.
We heard of her courage in the face of great pain and of her sunny disposition, we looked at her smiling pictures and laughed at her India adventures, and we felt as though we had met and known her closely. Her dedication to her family and to good causes is worthy of emulation. We remember her family and friends in our prayers as we bid goodbye to her. We wish them the strength to face life with the lessons she taught them, and those she lived.
We also re-pledge ourselves to our mission. We know this is what Sue would have wanted."
Savitri Sharma, Find Your Feet Country Director, India.
