In Memoriam: Susan Anstett

Posted by on May 12, 2017 in News

Susan was a member of the RMWG through 2011, when she moved to Pueblo. She will be remembered fondly by many of our members. She died suddenly May 8. Her Facebook page says “Wool is my life.” Spinner and shepherd, she was a multitalented fiber artist.

From a post on Facebook by Shawnee Anstett, Susan’s daughter:
“I can’t thank everyone enough for all of your kind words, thoughts and prayers. It’s hard to put into words the loss of my mom so unexpectedly, but I have to say that we couldn’t have gotten through this without the love and support of our amazing family and friends. It has brought us so much comfort and we appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts. We haven’t set a date for moms memorial but as soon as we do I’ll let everyone know. Love you all!”
