Sue Childers, 71, of Arlington, Texas, passed away peacefully Saturday, November 9, 2019.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, November 16, 2019, at 11am in the chapel at St. Paul United Methodist Church located at 525 Beech St in Abilene. Burial will follow at the Elmwood Memorial Gardens. A visitation for family and friends will be held Friday, November 15, 2019 at North's Funeral Home located at 242 Orange St. from 5:00-6:30 pm.
Sue was born in Roscoe, Texas on May 17, 1948 and raised in Abilene, Texas. A 1966 graduate of Cooper High School, she attended West Texas State University (now West Texas A&M University) in Canyon, before graduating from McMurry University in 1975.
The church was an important part of Sue's life. She felt it was important not only to attend, but to give one's time and resources. While in Abilene, Sue attended and was active at St. Paul United Methodist Church. In 1978, Sue moved to Arlington, where she would live for the next 41 years. She attended First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth, serving as an usher and volunteering at the First Street Methodist Mission for many years. She was a very giving person, not seeking anything in return. Sue would collect clothes, jackets, food, blankets and other items for the mission.
Sue had great patience for knitting, crochet, cross stitch, and other forms of needlework. She would make prayer shawls and blankets for the mission to distribute to those in need. Sue, also, liked to travel, especially in Texas. She was a member of the Texas Outdoor-Woman Network (T.O.W.N.), attending events and seminars.
The family would like to thank the staff and her friends at Brookdale Pecan Park and Town Hall Estates in Arlington for their love and support.
Sue was preceded in death by her parents Lady (Jane) Young Childers, Sterling Simpson Childers, Jr., and cousins Flack Young and Wells
Young III. She is survived by her brothers Carl Childers and Jose Delucchi, sister Ann Lovell, her niece Angela Lovell and children Jackson and Elizabeth Cleveland, friend Edith Sanchez-Silva, cousins Sheila Fox, Diane Coleman, Gay Young, Gloria Devol and husband Dale, and Julie Crawford and husband Mickey.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to the donor's favorite charity, preferably helps those in need in your community. Other suggestions would include McMurry University & West Texas Rehabilitation Center.

I feel so bad that I didn't comment on my friend's memorial page until now but I didn't realize it was here. I met Sue when I started working at Brookdale in Arlington, Texas. She was one of the youngest people there and it really showed because of her sense of humor, energy and overall personality. Needless to say we hit it off immediately as friends. I'd look out for her and she for me. I lost contact with her when she left but found her again at her last place of residency through her sweet brother Carl whom I love dearly too. I regret I didn't spend more time with my friend and miss her so much. I'll say this because unfortunately I've learned it being friends with her: spend time with those you love here on earth while you have time because time isn't promised to any of us. Until we meet again my sweet "Sue Bee." Your Sister, April💜
