Barber, Sue Chen Sue Chen Barber passed away on March 27, 2014, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Born in Taiwan on December 15, 1963, to parents Yi-Shung and Jane Chen, she was the loving wife of her devoted husband of 24 years, Scott A. Barber, and wonderful mother to two beautiful children, Brittany and Colton. Sue dearly loved her children, of whom she was enormously proud, and they will take her lessons of life, love, and her inspiration with them always. Sue was survived by her husband, children, parents, brother, Joe Chen M.D., brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, mother-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was also blessed to have many loyal and close friends whom she loved, and who supported her throughout her life. She graduated from J.J. Pearce High School and went on to obtain a BBA from Baylor University and later an MBA. She was always the technical expert to her family and friends and used her skills as a computer engineer during her working career at Mobil Oil and Frito Lay before becoming a stay at home mother. Sue loved volunteering at her children's schools and never missed a chance to help where it was needed. She had a loving sense of humor and always brought a warm, intelligent and unique insight to every conversation. She traveled the world extensively with her family and friends and was always looking for a new adventure. She loved to fish, rarely failed to bring home the biggest catch, and enjoyed beating her friends at Mahjong. A memorial service will be held at St. Andrews United Methodist Church in Plano. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to MD Anderson Cancer Center at To leave condolences and view her full obituary please go to
