Sue Bogner's family is inviting friends and colleagues of hers to attend a "Celebrate the Life of Sue Bogner" session from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday October 22nd, to be held at the Washington DC Cosmos Club. Please come join us.
Attached in PDF format is a tribute article about Sue which appears in the October issue of the HFES e-Bulletin. In a few days, that Bulletin will be available on line at the HFES web page www.hfes.org.
The Cosmos Club is located at 2121 Massachusetts Ave., N.W., Washington, DC. The dress code for the Cosmos Club is "coat and tie for men, and dresses, suits or clothing of equivalent formality for women."

We would like to pass on some sad news. Marilyn Sue Bogner, HFES Fellow, and one or our active Potomac Chapter members over the past few decades, passed away at age 79 on Friday August 19th. She had debilitating strokes in October 2014, and has been unable to communicate much since then.
Sue made quite an impact on the field of human factors, sort of nudging our profession into examining the issues of "prevention of medical error." She represented our profession admirably to the fullest. Her obituary was printed in Sunday, August 28th edition of The Washington Post. It was prepared by her son Ed Chapman, who lives in Kansas.
The plan is to have a "Celebrate the Life of Marilyn Sue Bogner" at the Washington DC Cosmos Club at some undetermined date in the near future.Gerry Krueger has prepared a tribute-obituary article to the National HFES organization, and with Lois Smith and Lynn Strother's help that article will appear in the October issue of the HFES Bulletin.
Likely a short article about Sue will also appear in the Washington Academy of Sciences (WAS) journal in the near future as well.
Ed will return to Sue's Bethesda home soon to begin settling up Sue's affairs, and to nail down a time for that planned celebration at the Cosmos Club. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the ASPCA or the American Wildlife Foundation. Please view and sign the family guest book at: www.PumphreyFuneralHome.com.
