Susan Sawyer

Membership

Susan is retired and has been a resident of Norco since 2004 when she moved here from Corona with her husband Mark.  Her children were already students at Norco High and she had always loved the town and it’s unique, quaint and rural lifestyle.  Her first introduction to the Lake Norconian was driving past the hotel with Mark and he pointed out that it was where he was born when it was a navy hospital and his father was stationed there.  That’s all it took.  Susan became fascinated and wanted to know more.  They became members of the foundation and Susan learned all she could about the property and immediately volunteered to help.  Now it is her passion to introduce the history to others and fight for it’s preservation.
