Beverly Sue McCalman, age 72, peacefully went home to be with her precious Lord and Savior on Thursday, August 29, 2013. Her battle with cancer began in January 2013, and she fought courageously until the Lord granted her the final victory. Born, Beverly Sue Skidmore, she was beloved by lifelong friends and family. Known as Sizzlin' Sue for her speed on the basketball court, Sue is also remembered for her generous spirit as a mother, spouse, daughter, sister and friend, and her fierce determination to accomplish anything she set out to do.
Sue earned her bachelor of Psychology degree from East Texas State University, led the SSMS department at the Texas Department of Human Services for twenty years, and became a successful real estate agent in Denton, TX following her tenure with the state. After retiring from real estate, Sue and her husband, Dave moved back to Clardy, TX where she was born and lived for most of her life.
Born on February 17, 1941 in Clardy, TX to Eugenia and Lemuel Sam Skidmore, Sue was the youngest of three daughters. She loved her family and nature, played the piano beautifully and sang like an angel. Her loving nature was a blessing to so many. She was always there for friends and family no matter the personal sacrifice, and helped anyone who needed a hand.
Sue is survived by her loving husband, Dave McCalman of Clardy, TX, with whom she has enjoyed the last thirty-six years of her life. Sue is also survived by her sisters, Sara Eatherly and Barbara Fletcher of Paris, TX, and her children, Tim Davis of Arlington, TX, Todd Davis of Saginaw, TX, Kimberly Mitola of Meriden, CT, Mike McCalman of Frisco, TX, Duke McCalman of Keller, TX and Peggy McCalman of Houston, TX.
