Sue Marxheimer

Sue was born and lived in Prague, Czech Republic until March 1939, when her family fled as refugees to England. Her mother wanted her to become a proper English girl in every way and she complied. After World War II they emigrated to Chicago. Sue again complied with her mother’s wish to become a true American teen ager, who would do extraordinarily well in her education, career and marriage. Not easy, but she complied as much as possible.

She graduated from the Universities of Illinois and Michigan with B.S. and M.A. degrees in Speech Pathology. Not quite medicine, but next best. In the mid fifties she married Ed, a student at University of California in Berkley and bore two beautiful little girls. Lack of funds forced another emigration. This time to Edmonton, where Ed became a professor in Romance Languages and Sue was the first Speech Pathologist in the Edmonton Public Schools. Most importantly, she fell in love with the city, the prairies and the mountains. She firmly intends to remain here for the rest of her life.
