Word has reached us of the death early on June 22 of Sue Coon, 66, longtime Dean of University Life at Duke. She characterized herself on Twitter as “wife, mom, cellist, vocalist, Unitarian, admissions officer, [&] recovering arts administrator who loves walking in Duke [G]ardens.”

The eZine of Kalmazoo College carried this note in 2017: “Sue retired on June 30, 2017, after a 41-year career in higher education. She served as manager of Stewart Theatre at North Carolina State University for eight years, then spent 33 years at Duke University as director of cultural affairs, dean of university life, and most recently as senior assistant director of undergraduate admissions.”

We will provide additional biographical details in due course. Meanwhile our sympathies go out to her husband Conrad Weiser and their children.
