Susan Howard

The loving wife of SACA President George Howard for over 40 years and wonderful mother to two sons (Nick and Rhys – naturally, also chess players), Susan was a very determined person and a reasonable social chess player herself.

Very understanding of George’s chess addiction, Susan loved Adelaide with its chess scene and the different characters that it brought out. She especially admired Darryl Johansen, who she thought of as “a loveable Aussie bloke” and the work he put into becoming a Grandmaster so it is only natural that he be a guest player in the tournament held in her memory.
