Hardage on Jan. 18, 1946 in Clovis, N.M. Sue was a faithful wife and mother who supported her husband's military career of 27 years while moving around the world. She and her husband owned and operated Shirley's Imports on North Main in Altus for several years. Sue taught painting and craftwork to many over the years as she enjoyed helping others while sharing her love of art. She was also a great cook and was known for her pecan pies and casseroles. She was especially proud when her casserole dishes were completely eaten during a church meal. Sue still had a sharp mind as she demonstrated by sending emails and prayer grams to her friends. She was a member of the Tamarack Road Church of Christ and enjoyed oil painting, cooking, helping others, church work, walking and flowers.
