Volunteer Spotlight--Sue Jolley
Sue Ellsworth Jolley
This week we would like to spotlight one of our wonderful volunteers, Sue Ellsworth Jolley. Sue was born and raised in Payson and is the daughter of the late Howard and Marilyn Ellsworth. She attended school in Payson and graduated from Payson High School.
Sue married Stewart Jolley from Santaquin. They lived in San Jose, California for 31 years where Stewart was employed by IBM. They raised their two children, Kevin and Debbie in the Silicon Valley area. Sue was a kindergarten teacher and taught school for 12 years. She then decided to go to nursing school and get her nursing degree. She spent the reminder of her time in California employed as a nurse in several different doctor’s offices.
When her husband retired, they returned to Utah in 1995. They built them a home in Elk Ridge. Sue had to opportunity to return to nursing and she worked for Dr. Colver in his office in Payson for a number of years.
Sue and Stewart have eight grandchildren. Three of them live in Modesto, California and five live in Utah County. Her son lives in Modesto and her daughter, Debbie, passed away several years ago.
Sue is a member of the DUP and Jr. Cultus Club. Her hobbies are crocheting, cross stitching, and family history.
When she finally “retired.,” she became a part time volunteer filling in for a friend at Peteetneet. When her friend returned full-time to Peteetneet, Sue loved being a volunteer and associating with the people at Peteetneet so she became a full-time volunteer. You can see her every Monday morning greeting visitors.
We appreciate Sue and the positive feeling she extends to all those that volunteer and visit the Peteetneet Museum.
