Donor Spotlights

Donor Spotlight: Susan Schlessman Duncan (Colorado College, 1949)

On June 1, 2019, our beloved sister Sue Susan Maude (Schlessman) Duncan passed away, just days before her 89th birthday. Sue's memorial was held on July 13, 2019, and was attended by many Gamma Phi Betas, from her collegiate sisters to treasured alumnae friends she made through her long-standing Gamma Phi Beta history.

The Gamma Phi Beta Foundation received a $1M planned gift from Sue – one of our largest donations to date. The Sue Schlessman Duncan Scholarship Endowment will be available for an undergraduate member in good standing of any Gamma Phi Beta Chapter in the State of Colorado.

A full story honoring Sue’s life and involvement in Gamma Phi Beta will be released in the spring 2021 issue of The Crescent. You won’t want to miss it.
