Susan Kip Tindall of Carbondale, 69, died Friday, May 15, 2015, after a sudden brief illness.

Born in Denver, Colorado, on October 4, 1945, Susan was the youngest daughter of Alys B. Adams and Kester G. Adams.

Growing up in Denver, she attended public schools graduating from George Washington High School. She graduated with a degree in Elementary Education at The University of Northern Colorado in 1967, and was a member of Sigma Kappa Sorority. She embarked on what was to be a 40-year career teaching at the kindergarten level including a long tenure with the Roaring Fork School District in Carbondale.

After a five-year hiatus she came out of retirement and worked as teaching assistant with Mount Sopris Montessori in Carbondale, where she worked until her untimely death.

She is survived by her husband, John Tindall of Carbondale, daughter Jennifer Groves Kuhn and her husband Andre Kuhn, her granddaughter Adrianna Kuhn of Carbondale, and her sisters Jean Arnold of Kansas City, Missouri, and Nancy Jarrell of Lexington, Virginia, and four nephews and three nieces.

A memorial celebration of Susan’s life will be held in July in the Carbondale area at a date to be announced in the near future.
