Ms. Conway was a vivacious lady who had a zest for life. She attended Bath High School, graduating in 1962. She graduated from East Carolina University in 1965. After a short career of teaching in schools at Fort Bragg, NC, and Poquoson, VA, her love of color and fashion led her to launch a career in Men’s Wear which led her to live in Atlanta, Washington, DC, and New York City. She traveled the world for work and pleasure. Upon leaving the fashion industry Sue returned to the Brinn Farm where she enjoyed her flowers, animals and immersed herself in realizing her dream of the restoration of the family farm and perpetuating the home place for the next generation. She worked at Northside High School for the past several years and took an active role in the community. She was a member of St. Thomas Episcopal Church and served on the vestry. She was a member of the Pam-le-co Book Club, Historic Bath Garden Club, Bath High School Preservation and the Bath Community Rescue Squad.
