Former York College First Lady Sue Childress Passes
Mrs. Sue Childress, widow of the late Harvey Childress, passed away peacefully June 4, at around 1 p.m. in Dallas, Texas. Brother Childress was the first president of York College when the school re-opened in 1956. He also later served on the board of trustees.
They were married for 73 years.
Mrs. Childress was a steadfast and capable support to her husband throughout many roles in ministry as well as a faithful wife and mother. The Childress' love for York College never waned as they promoted the school at every opportunity and provided generous financial support to bless students.
The family has asked that memorial gifts be made to the Harvey and Sue Childress Endowment, York College, 1125 E 8th St, York, NE 68467.
