By Beacon Staff

Susan Christofferson, co-founder and executive director of the Nurturing Center and long-time advocate for area children, died Wednesday from complications with cancer. She was 59.

Christofferson started The Nurturing Center in 1978 to provide prevention services that offer support, education and resources to Northwest Montana families.

In an e-mail from the Nurturing Center Board of Directors, president Barbara Calm said the board offered their condolences and support to Christofferson’s family and will work to continue her legacy in the Flathead.

Cards and expressions of support can be sent to the Nurturing Center at 146 Third Ave. W., Kalispell, MT 59901. Contributions to the Nurturing Center Safe Havens Program to continue Christofferson’s “dream of supporting families and children” can be sent to the same address.
