Natalie Sue Miller, born on March 7, 1934 in Kansas City, MO, passed away on May 29, 2017.
Sue was an inspiration and a role model to her children and grandchildren and countless others she touched over many decades of service to her community. She believed everyone was important, and opened her home and her life to people of all backgrounds, listening, understanding, and offering hope and ideas to all who sought them.
Ten years after her professional career as a fashion model ended when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1971, Sue founded the Sue Miller Day of Caring for Breast Cancer Awareness, the first, and what is today the oldest, breast cancer non-profit organization in Colorado. To date, The Day of Caring has served more than 17,500 breast cancer patients and survivors with a variety of care and education programs, as well as financial assistance to those in need.
At the age of 70, and as a way to help others by sharing her personal story of survival, Sue authored the book “I’m Tougher Than I Look,” which chronicled the many health and personal struggles she overcame throughout her lifetime. At the age of 75, Sue earned her master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and Counselor Education from Colorado University at Denver, and continued to deploy her skills to help scores of people through many of life’s great challenges. For her countless contributions to her community, Sue received many awards and citations; in 2002, she was named to the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame.
