As a classroom volunteer, I watch these children learn with the touch of their hands, hear the laughter and realize they are not the only students who ‘See Life Differently'.MARY, VOLUNTEER
Honoring Sue Kintzele
Anchor Center for Blind Children honors the life of Suzanne (Sue) Kullgren Kintzele, who passed away on March 23rd, 2017 at the age of 78.
In honoring Sue, we are spotlighting her service to Anchor Center and remembering her generous spirit. Sue served on Anchor Center’s Board of Directors as a General Member from 1998-99 and as the School Events Co-Chair from 1999-2002. She was a beloved friend of Anchor Center who, for many years, volunteered her time to make birthday cakes for the students each month.
A native of Denver, Sue was born June 11, 1938, the daughter of Alice and Elwood Kullgren. Sue graduated from East High School, attended Mills College and went on to graduate from the University of Colorado with a degree in education. While at CU she was a member of Delta Gamma fraternity. She married Louis Richard (Dick) Kintzele, Jr. in 1960, who preceded her in death.
Sue was active for many years with several civic organizations including Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS), Anchor Center, Children's Hospital, Denver Debutante Ball, Florence Crittenton High School, Junior League of Denver and Tuesday Morning Class. Sue loved to play bridge and golf and enjoyed traveling.
She will be remembered by her friends and family for her warmth and generosity. Sue is survived by her two children, Missy (John) Eliot and Greg (Lisen) Kintzele, and five grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Sharon Wilkinson.
The family kindly requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to ARCS or Anchor Center in her name. If you wish to honor Sue with a donation to Anchor Center in her name, please click below.
