Sue was born April 23, 1936 to the union of Willard and Alpha Meredith in Columbia and she passed from this life on July 24, 2018 at Ouachita Healthcare and Rehabilitation in Monroe.
Sue graduated from Louisiana Tech University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. After working with the New Orleans Department of Welfare, she returned to Columbia and married Roy Max Childers.

She loved to learn and was a supporter of Louisiana Public Broadcasting.
Her failing health in recent years may have slowed her physically, but never slowed her love of learning.

She is survived by her daughter: Christy Childers and her husband Reggie Watson of Sterlington; daughter in law, Tere Childers; four grandchildren: Abby Mills, Rebekah DeMoss, Sarah Childers, and Reed Watson; four great-grandchildren.
