Gwenlyn “Sue” Symons - Aunt Sue was born on January 31, 1932 in Swayzee, Indiana. She passed away in Albuquerque on June 30, 2022 and was extremely proud of being 90 years old! Sue moved to Albuquerque with her family in 1948 and was in the first graduating class of Highland High School. She went on to work for Mountain Bell for 43 years. Sue was the best aunt, great-aunt, great-great aunt, sister, daughter and granddaughter a family could have. It was once said, “Every family should have an Aunt Sue!” She took care of all of us. She loved to hike, cross country ski and travel when she could, exploring as much of New Mexico as possible. Her favorite place in New Mexico was Bandelier National Monument. She took many nieces and nephews camping, hiking, cross country skiing and on summer trips they will remember for a lifetime. When asked what she might want to be remembered for in her lifetime, Sue said “kindness”, which is an understatement given her generosity and care for her family. Aunt Sue was an avid Lady Lobo Softball and Basketball fan and enjoyed the Dallas Cowboys. In later years, she attended sporting events for her great nieces and great, great nieces and nephews. She made everyone believe they were her “favorite”. She also loved the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta - crewing with her nephews for many out of state balloonists. Her character and kindness extended far beyond her family. Sue is survived by her brother, Bill Campbell (Bernice) and sister Mickey Campbell Hughes as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Sue is preceded in death by her mother and stepfather, Wilma and Bill Campbell Sr., father Jesse Symons, and sisters Miriam Neff and Ruth Souter. The family would like to thank the Presbyterian Hospice Staff (especially Charity and Molly) for her care.
Services will be held at a later date.
It is requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Lady Lobo Softball or Basketball teams in her honor
