Sue Burns

Thu 26 November 2015

It is with great sadness that the canoeing family report the news that Sue Burns (nee Ward,) passed away peacefully in Perth yesterday. Sue was a member of the GB slalom team in the 1980's  and a coach to many youngsters in Scotland over the years.  As recently as earlier this month she attended the Scottish Slalom Championships at Pinkston and, although obviously very ill, was her usual irrepressible self.  Sue's funeral will be held on Wednesday 2nd December at 10.30am at Perth Crematorium and a memorial service at Scone New Church at 2pm.
