Dedicated mother, community volunteer and worker Sue McKowen passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, Aug. 28 at 10:51 p.m. in Bakersfield, from what her family believes may have been heart failure, but that is unconfirmed.

McKowen was secretary for the local AARP chapter, an officer of the Town Council and had been a proofreader at The Mountain Enterprise for several years, helping to raise the quality of this newspaper with her love of language. An obituary will be published next week or as the family is able to provide information.

This is part of the August 31, 2012 online edition of The Mountain Enterprise.
