Sue graduated from Nashville High School in Nashville, AR, the only one to graduate out of her immediate family members. She worked for a very short time at the University of Illinois. She was most known for working as a secretary at the Newman grade school. Sue was also a faithful member of the Newman United Methodist Church. After her husband William passed away in 1975, she married John Edmundson and they were together for six years before his passing. Sue also had a very good friend, Gene Trimble, who precedes her in death.
A celebration of Sue’s life will be held at a later date.
