Sue’s father served his full career in the U.S. Army so she lived many places in her early life. After her early school years she went to some college and graduated from beauty school. She married Sidney Ballard on December 29, 1946. They had three children before his early passing. She built a home in North Richland Hills. While there she met Frank Benton and they married December 16, 1960. Sue was very active in AWCE where she served as president for one year and ran the AWCE gift shop with her best friend Marvelle Bryan.

Although we were cousins, Sue (and Fran) was more like a big sister. Growing up at family gatherings, we learned many important life lessons together, such as, "When you have a cold chill, it means that a 'possum ran over your grave". I am proud that her final resting place will be in a National Cemetery.

My grandmother never once missed a birthday in 32 years. It would never fail I would always have a birthday card from her and I loved it. It always made me feel special to know she was thinking about me and was proud of me. I hope she knew how much it meant to me. She was the best grandmother a kid could ask for and I’ll miss her dearly. Love you always.

When my husband and I got married we had to do it on our own. My Mother wasn't exactly thrilled I was getting married at the ripe ole age of 18. I ordered my cake for my reception to be picked up about an hour before the service started. My Aunt Sue asked about the cake, etc. I told her my plan. She said she would pick up the cake. Unbeknownst to me, she made sure my reception was perfect. She got everything set up and it was just perfect. She was always a big part of my childhood and I loved her so much. She was such an amazing person. I miss her but I know she is enjoying her heavenly home.
