Sue was born on June 22, 1937 in De Kalb, Texas to the late Henry Haskell Godwin and Annie Macil (Nichols) Godwin. She grew up in Lamesa, and California.

Together they enjoyed creating many precious memories. She also cherished genuine friendships and relationships. Her love of people and being the, “Dancing Queen of West Texas”, led her to help organize others who shared the same passion for dancing. She and her friends traveled all over the area fellowshipping, dancing in dance halls all over West Texas, listening to music, and having a good time. Sue was naturally organized and orchestrated several very well planned social events. She was blessed to have kept active until the day before she passed by enjoying a lunch with her Sunday school friends of the “Luke” class. Sue’s faith was also an important part of her life; she was a member of Pioneer Drive Baptist Church where she enjoyed her Sunday School Class. While her friends enriched her life, her family was her base. She was a loving mother, beloved Grandmother Sue, her love went out to her extended family as well.
