It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of former member, AKC judge Susan A. (Preston) Malinowski. Sue died in hospice on Tuesday, November 12, from pancreatic cancer. She was 63. A well-known fancier of Great Pyrenees, Sue was a respected breeder-judge, and had been active in judging a number of other working breeds. She was a member of Fort St. Clair Kennel Club until 2009, when she and her husband retired to The Villages in Lake County, Florida. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Baldwin Brothers Cremation Society, but are yet to be announced. Condolences can be sent to Sue’s widower, Ken Malinowski at the family home, 2031 Watson Terrace, The Villages, FL 32162.
The winner of Best of Breed in Great Pyrenees at the Fort St. Clair Kennel Club show in April 2014 will be awarded an engraved silver-plated bowl in Sue’s memory.
