Although I think I never met her personally, I did enjoy participating in bus trips, she and the organization she lead arranged for patriots like her. I am very saddened to hear a strong advocate for our dear country passed away. We are so much in need of her and people like her. This world would probably be so much better if we had more Susans.

I'm so sorry for this huge loss for Don & the family! I met Sue years ago, through the NJ Federation of Republican Women, where we served on the Board of Governors & several committees, over the years. She was involved & incredibly knowledgeable about politics, and passionate about getting more women engaged. She had a larger-than-life personality, always with a positive attitude & volunteering to help. I also had a connection to Sue through Don's membership in Mensa, and it was fun bumping into her at their functions. I'll miss her a lot!

CandleMy friend and former colleague Sue Tisiker passed away today. Iโ€™ve known her since I first came into politics at age 18.

She was always well spoken, sweet and dignified in a business that is rough and tumble.

Sue was also a fighter and stuck strongly to her Republican convictions. She gave her time and money for Republican grassroots efforts - and her heart.

She will me sorely missed and mourned by me and everyone who knew her.

Rest In Peace.

Sue formed the Middlesex County Republican Women's Club, famously, in the cloakroom (the only private and available room) of a restaurant, during our 2009 South River Red & White Ball. As I remember, she called a group of us together and said to us, let's do this, tonight! On the spot, our South River Republican women, attending the Red & White, pledged their loyalty and commitment to the newly formed Middlesex County Republican Women's club. It was with Sue's leadership, this club was established and flourished throughout the years. Sue has always been a pioneer, a leader, a friend. She will truly be missed. May God Bless you, Sue, and your family.
