DeltaSue graduated from Coleman High School and attended West Texas State in Canyon, Texas. She went on to carve a path in the insurance industry. She worked as a sales woman and policy training specialist in the accident and disability income market with Combined American insurance. She won numerous awards for exceeding production goals and quickly became an executive member of the company’s training staff. Later she helped start TLC insurance, which focused on cancer protection insurance. At TLC she again excelled in building the policy training department. She was well known for her integrity, caring, common sense and discernment. She chose to leave the insurance world and see the world as a Marine wife.
As a Marine wife, she travelled to various locations such as Japan, Korea, Hawaii, and Okinawa. She was a homemaker and care giver with the ability to give a healing touch to a person in pain. She was gracious and had the gift of hospitality and was often complimented for her special charm in providing an entertaining environment.
DeltaSue lived a life of being a doer. Her mantra was Action Speaks Louder than Words; Be Truthful and Do the Right Thing. The grace and truth reflected in her life was a joy to many and will be missed by all.
