Suki Potier was born on November 14, 1947 in Surrey, England as Melanie Susan Potier. When she was just a teenager, she modeled for all the great British designers, becoming a favorite of Ossie Clark. At the age of 18, Suki was dating Guiness heir Tara Browne, who was separated from his then-wife, Nicky.
On December 18, 1966, Suki was a passenger in Tara's Lotus Elan when he drove through South Kensington at high rate of speed, colliding with a parked lorry and was killed instantly. Suki was not injured.
It was this tragedy that led her to Rolling Stones musician Brian Jones. Suki said, "He gave me a shoulder to cry on and he picked up the pieces and made me feel a woman again." The two dated for approximately two years.
Suki moved in with 25-year-old Brian in the last few months before his death to a fifteenth century farmhouse, which was once the home of AA Milne, creator of the Winnie the Pooh stories. It was there in the swimming pool that Brian, who had by then left the Rolling Stones, drowned mysteriously.
Suki was shattered by Brian's death. Suki remained friends with the Rolling Stones, going to parties with Mick Jagger, attending the Isle of Wight Festival with Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and other members of the Stones camp.
In the Seventies, Suki married Robert Ho, son of billionaire Hong Kong business Stanley Ho, with whom she had two daughters, Faye and Sarah. On June 23, 1981, while in Portugal, Suki drove herself and her husband off of a cliff, reportedly because Robert told her he had wanted a divorce.
Today, eldest daughter Faye is active in Macau nonprofit organizations. An avid supporter of children, the elderly, and animal welfare, she is Chairwoman of the Macau Children's Association, Managing Director of Macau Charity Association, Director & President of SPCA - ANIMA Macau.
Meanwhile, youngest daughter Sarah Ho is a successful jewelery designer, who was trained as a goldsmith at the London Metropolitan University and then graduated as a gemologist from the HRD Institute of Gemology in Antwerp, Belgium. She established her own company, SHO Fine Jewellery, in 2006.
