We mourn the loss of Board Member and Co-Founder Sheryll Sue Carella
Sheryll Sue Carella
6/5/36 – 4/2/13
Sue was born in Iowa but grew up in San Bruno, CA. She was a graduate of Capachino High School, San Bruno, in 1954 and graduated from San Francisco State University in 1983.
As the co-founder of the American Narcolepsy Association and Narcolepsy Network, Sue dedicated her life to the community and medical fields for awareness, research, treatments and the ultimate hope of a cure to all sleeping disorders.
Later in her life she was one of the first to settle into Redwood Shores Community and served on the Home Owners Association.
Sue was a loving sister to Judy Dennis; beloved mother to her three sons, Steven Hansen, Skip Hansen and David Carella; grandmother to Tyler, Mallory, Megan, Nick Hansen and Anthony Carella; great grandmother to Taylor and Quinten Hansen, and friend to so many in the narcolepsy community. She will be greatly missed.
Private services will be held in Iowa at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Narcolepsy Network Inc., 129 Waterwheel Lane, North Kingstown, RI 02852.
