Sue enjoyed knitting, quilting, reading, camping with her family, and traveling. She had a place in her heart for all her animals over the years.

She loved a good glass of wine on occasion.

Preceding her in death is her other half, her husband of 55 years, Eugene “Gene” Cordray whom she married on June 24, 1960. They enjoyed a good dinner and drink at the local Mexican restaurant, and many memories together. She is also preceded in death by her brother, Dennis A. Owen and son-in-law, James D. Allen.
