Prison Guard to be Remembered in Vigil

By  | 

Friends, family and co-workers of a state prison guard killed in the line of duty will gather to remember her Wednesday. A candlelight vigil in memory of Susan Canfield will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Texas Prison Museum in Huntsville.

Canfield, 54, died September 24 while attempting to stop an escape of two inmates from the TDCJ Wynne Unit. Hundreds attended her funeral last month at Sam Houston State University's Johnson Coliseum. Canfield was eulogized as a Texas hero who paid the ultimate price to protect her community.
