In Memoriam: SPA Supporter and Former CU Regent Susan Kirk

I am very sad to report that Susan Kirk died on March 6, 2015, as a result of injuries she suffered in a car accident.

Photo of Susan KirkSusan was a stalwart supporter of SPA. She served on our advisory board for a number of years and was a regular attendee, along with her husband Dick, at our Buechner breakfast events. She was involved with all activities of the Wirth Chair and, perhaps most important for SPA, she endowed a scholarship for students interested in women’s policy issues, which has supported many students.

Susan will be greatly missed at SPA, and all across Denver.  As described in her obituary, she was involved in many activities at the University of Colorado and at a number of organizations.

Services will be held on Saturday, March 14, at 11 a.m. at St John’s Cathedral in Denver.
