SUE HUMPHREY, a personal assistant from Henley, died on September 11 following a brain haemorrhage. She was 56.
Sue was born at home in Bushey, Hertfordshire, on March 22, 1958 and spent a happy childhood with her parents and older sister Sandy.
She developed a love of animals, birds and the countryside from her father who was a forester and gamekeeper on Lord Spearman’s Estate at Sarratt in Hertfordshire.
Following her graduation from Nottingham Trent University, Sue began a career as a teacher but soon found her interest lay elsewhere.
In 1982, she met Haydn Jones, who was to become her lifelong partner.
