She was heavily involved in community development with the City of Indianapolis as a volunteer for the last 15 years of her career. Sue also founded the East 10th Street Civic Association in 2002; a business association that has won many national awards. In 2000, Sue was awarded the Sagamore of the Wabash for her community work in 2000. She was also awarded the Citizen of the Year award by the City of Indianapolis in 2001.
