Sue Emery
1920 - 2010

Sue Emery, a Bridge Bulletin editor for nearly a quarter of a century and a fixture at NABCs for even longer, died on Nov. 20 of natural causes in Wichita Falls TX, her home since she retired from the ACBL in 1996. She was 90.

Emery joined the staff of the Bridge Bulletin after the death of her husband in 1972. Before that, she and "Big John" Emery were a well-known directing team at tournaments in Texas.

Before her retirement, she had attended 95 consecutive NABCs. She is survived by daughters Ann McGrath and Connie Phillis of Wichita Falls, son Brit Camp of Los Angeles and grandson Sean McGrath.

A full obituary will be published in the January issue of the Bridge Bulletin.
