,Ml,Kurtis Hensey of Wilmington, DE, Kenneth (Lynn) Hensey of Rehoboth Beach De and nine step grandchildren located across the country.

Sue was born on December 22, 1940 in Houston TX, the daughter of Edward and Laura Melton. She graduated from Sunset High School, Dallas, TX, where she was active in the Methodist Youth program. Later she moved to Houston where she owned and operated Axcell's Beauty Salon for 22 years.

Sue was fourth generation Texan and a true Texan is every sense of the word. Her word was her bond and of her many friends over her life span she never lost a friend. She was known to be a very competitive lady and always strived for perfection no matter the endeavor. After she married Fred, he introduced her to the game of golf. She immediately became completely absorbed with game and sold her salon so she could devote more time to her game. When she resumed playing bridge in the later years, the same intensity she had in golf followed her to the bridge table.

A celebration of Sue's life will be held at 11:00 am Thursday, January 22, 2015 at the First United Methodist Church located 1016 Sam Houston Ave., Huntsville, TX. Bishop (ret.) Ben Chamness will officiate. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations in her honor to the or the Wounded Warriors Project. A special thanks to THEE Hospice for their loving and professional care.
