One of her favorite things to do was walk, whether it be around the neighborhood, in the mountains or at the beach, she always wanted to “go for a walk.” She was also a member of the Claude United Methodist Church.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Rowland, her parents and two sisters, Maurine Russ of Panhandle and Laura Lee Adams of Claude.
Survivors include her daughter Mary Beth Boyd and husband Richard of Baton Rouge, Louisiana; her son Charley Triplett and wife Melissa of Lubbock, Texas; ; a sister Ola Faye Hinsey of Silverton, Oregon and a brother Charley Russ Jr. of Panhandle, Texas; and her precious grandchildren Kendall Boyd and Fiancé Morgan Gast of Mandeville, Louisiana, Joshua Boyd and wife Haley of Mandeville, Louisiana and Eryn Triplett of Lubbock, Texas.
The family would like to thank Hospice of Lubbock and Callendar House of Lubbock for the care and compassion they showed Mary Sue and her family.
