Sue was the daughter of the late Charles William and Elva Doris (Baldwin) Setters.
Sue married her soulmate Wilbur Monroe ‘Bill’ Jones on April 8, 1961 in Brownwood. She and Bill were dedicated members for many years of the Methodist Church, and served in many capacities. She was an active member of the Eastern Star and the American Business Woman’s Assn. She worked for GTE/Verizon for 35 years and was the first woman to work on the mainframe in the central office, which opened many career doors. She retired in 1989 to Bridgeport.
She enjoyed working in her yard, growing roses, fishing, and cooking for family gatherings at Easter, 4th of July and Christmas. She loved her pets like little people. She was active in many worthwhile organizations following retirement and most of all loved time with her precious Bill.
