Sue Newill

Parish Administrator

Since May 2012, Sue Newill is the friendly voice you hear when you call St. Andrew’s on Mondays and Fridays. Although she is part-time, she is invaluable to the life and ministry of the congregation. Sometimes Rugby the Sheltie, Sydney (Mini Aussie) and Ruby the tiny Mini Aussie can be found in the church office.  Sue enjoys reading, cooking, and counted cross-stitch. She has three adult children: Sara lives in Oregon with her husband, Jeff; Ryan and Rachel who are currently living in the Waterford area.
