Sue Watson Dies

Sue Watson
1956 - 2010

Sue, also known as Sue Lenka, died peacefully on 4 February. She was 53 years old.

Her friend Val Stein says:
"Sue worked for London Lesbian Line in the 1980s, and for other feminist organisations including Cinema of Women. She lived in Brighton and in London, and later, having become disabled, she moved to Polegate in Sussex.

Sue has been supported for the last few years by a network of loving and devoted friends. Battling bureaucracy and the anti-lesbian attitudes of both social services and Sue's biological family, they managed to get her transferred from an inappropriate and poorly-run nursing home into the more peaceful environment of a hospice.

We will miss her, and remember her as a rambler and lover of nature, as a witty and highly intelligent woman, and a true friend."
