Her teaching career at Delmar/Chisum ISD spanned 31 years. Sue loved the kids and loved to drive the bus. She always believed in having fun no matter what she was doing.
She married Scott F. King on July 23, 1955, and built a lifetime of memories with him making every step he did on the farm raising cattle. Scott was the best birthday present she ever received. They were married 62 years before he preceded her in death in Dec. of 2017. She had one son, the light of her life, James Ed, who was born on Oct. 19, 1961. Another light of her world was her only grandchild, Jeffrey Scott King, whom she adored. That’s when she became “grandmommy”.

Sue was proudly known as an Eastern Star and a member of the Midway Christian Church.
