Sue was born December 9, 1944, to Frankie and Cynthia Ward in Belton. She was one of nine children. Sue was always such a loving person. She loved being a mother, Nana, and great grandmother. Sue Enjoyed cooking and recently when her health didn’t allow her to cook anymore, she became quite the food critic. She collected doves, hummingbirds, and loved the color yellow. On a good day you would find Sue sitting at her table enjoying a Miller Light and a cigarette. She instilled all her best qualities in her children, and she has created quite a legacy.
