Obituary: Susan Louise Wolff, March 16, 1963, to Nov. 15, 2017
November 17, 2017
The Vail Valley has lost a precious friend. After a nine-year, heroic battle with cancer, Susan "Sue" Wolff has stepped out of our valley and into eternity.
Born Susan Louise Jepsen on March 16, 1963, in Great Falls, Montana, Sue graduated high school in North Canton, Ohio, and moved to Colorado in 1984. Sue graduated from Mesa College and settled in the Vail Valley in 1994. She married her best friend, Jeff Wolff, in 2003, which amused her family, as "Wolff" was her grandmother's maiden name.
Sue worked most of her life as a professional administrator, for the past 10 years at Trinity Church in Edwards. Sue was a consummate professional, a dear friend and sister, a loving mother to Jeff's two children and spoken of by many as the most courageous woman they had ever known.
During her nine-year battle with cancer, Sue never lost hope, never lost her smile and daily overcame tremendous obstacles as she refused to stop living. Until her final days, Sue's thoughts were focused on her family, her work and her deep faith in Christ. Sue passed away peacefully surrounded by her husband, sister, children and dear friends.
Sue is survived and terribly missed by her two older brothers, Alan Jepsen, of Norfolk, Virginia, and Gary Jepsen, of Imlay City, Michigan; her sister, Nancy Jepsen, of Denver; her husband, Jeff Wolff, of Gypsum; his children, Heather and Jesse Wolff, and her beloved dog, Cheyenne. She leaves behind many grieving friends whose lives were inspired, brightened and blessed by her life.
Sue, we love you, we will always miss you and we take great hope that you are free from your suffering and laughing in the arms of your Savior. Heaven is now a brighter place.
