Sue went to Chicago, Illinois after she graduated from high school and was working at The Kemper Insurance Company. Sue had disappeared one weekend and had been gone for a few days. None of the family had known where she went and no one had seen her or heard from her. She was found dead in a car in a garage. She died from carbon monoxide poisoning. No one ever knew the details of her death, where she had gone or the events leading up to her death. Sue died at age 21 and she never married.
The tombstone should read Coretta Sue Bradford. When the monument company made the monument they mispelled her name.
