Mary Sue or Susie (as she preferred) was a funny lady.   I had the privilege to reconnect with her via facebook and then on the class website.   She was passionate about her family, her art, her faith, and her politics. 

Susie and I were classmates from Bowie all the way through Cooper.  We walked home together while we were in Junior High.   Her mom's sister was the wife of my dad's cousin.  It was a distant  in-law relative kind of connection, but it allowed us to explore interesting topics on those walks. 

I'm going to miss her.

Mary Sue was a real talent and a true friend to everyone close to her.Dry sense of humor but had to be with brother Tommy and her Dad(Coach of Colt league Texans).   Mary Sue was the artist for our Junior telephone directory-"YEAR OF THE COUGAR".   With all the sports and activities on the cover it was a Great foreshadowing of the fun to come in our Junior and senior years--helped set the "Cougar Traditions".  Kenny Stephens
