Sue Freeman was the Founding Mother of the Social Networks journal along 
with her husband Lin Freeman. They were active participants in the Sunbelt 
conferences and INSNA.

They were living in Florida, so I sent them a note of inquiry about how 
they fared with Hurricane Irma.

Here is Lin's reply:

"We survived the storm fine. We stayed at a more inland friend's 
place,and our house was not hurt.  But when we got home, we went to bed, went to
sleep, and Sue never woke up.... after 59 years together..."
