From Representative Tom Lubnau's Tuesday Facebook post:
My good friend Sue Wallis died, today. She was 56 years old. The State of Wyoming is a sadder place, today, because of her absence. While I didn't always agree with Sue, I always respected the tenacity of her beliefs, and her willingness to say exactly what she thought. Those qualities are rare and getting rarer. The business of the legislature can wait a day or so, until we respectfully mourn the loss of our good friend.
From US Senator Mike Enzi
“I was sorry to hear about the death of Sue Wallis. She faithfully and passionately served Campbell County and the State of Wyoming for many years, years that were cut short. She embodied the Wyoming spirit of fierce independence and doing what one thinks should be done even if it would be easier not to. Diana and I send our condolences, thoughts and prayers to friends, family and all who have benefited from Sue’s service to our Wyoming community.”
Governor Mead on Passing of Representative Sue Wallis
CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Matt Mead issued the following statement on the passing of State Representative Sue Wallis.
“Wyoming lost a great voice today. Representative Wallis was a poet and her eloquence was on display whether she was writing or debating on the floor of the House or in my office. The strength of her convictions was clear as was her commitment to the West and our way of life. I will miss her,” Governor Mead said. Governor Mead orders that the State of Wyoming flag be lowered to half-staff at the Capitol and in Campbell County starting today from sunrise to sunset until the day of interment to honor Representative Wallis who represented Campbell County since 2007.
Eric Barlow, State Representative
Sue stood tall in who she was, and her convictions. Whether you agreed or disagreed with her, you were rarely at a loss to know what she was thinking. I will miss her.
State Representative Gregg Blikre and State Representative Norine Kasperik
