Dear AOA Members,

With great sadness, we share the passing of Sue Ives on April 11, 2021.

Sue Ives, originally from New Hampshire, was a long time resident of Virginia. In 2004 she and her husband Chuck purchased their first alpacas and started Alpacas of Nottingham Hollow. In 2005 they became founding members of the Virginia Alpaca Owners & Breeders Association (VAOBA). She volunteered much time to her local affiliate and to the national organization Alpaca Owners Association (AOA). Sue served on the VAOBA board for many years in all officer positions as well as Director at Large. She also served on the AOA Show Rules Committee as show liaison.

Sue has been show superintendent for all of the VAOBA Alpaca Expo’s since 2006. Since then she has superintended over a hundred shows across the country. Sue was honored by VAOBA in 2013 and MAPACA in 2018 with their Lifetime Achievement award. In 2019 Sue was awarded the AOA Shining Star for her work for and with the Show System and exhibitors. We will miss her greatly, Chuck and the family are in our thoughts and prayers.

The affiliate Pennsylvania Alpaca Owners & Breeders Association (PAOBA) has set up an account for donations to assist the family, to access visit Sue Ives Benefit.
