On January 15th 1944 Alice Sue Ann Nideffer was born in Vinita Ok. She was the third daughter in the family. Her older sisters are Maxine Elizabeth and Dolly Mae, her parents John Edgar Nideffer and Alice Elizabeth Nideffer. They owned and operated a small diner in Vinita. Since her mother was also named Alice she always preferred Sue Ann! When Sue Ann was 2 she was diagnosed with tuberculosis in her spine. She would spend the next year of her life in the Children's Hospital in Oklahoma City in a full body cast after graphing bone from her hip to the damaged vertebrae in her spine. Alice, Sue Ann's mom would take the train every weekend to the city to see her. The stress of the illness and treatment took its toll on her parents and they divorced and Alice later remarried Gordon Shamblin and the Family relocated to a farm in Blue Jacket Oklahoma. When Sue Ann was released from the hospital at the age of three she had to learn to walk all over again. To help build up her strength and put some weight on her bones her step dad Gordon would break up cornbread in buttermilk for them to share. ( her daughter tried this once. Its now on her top 10 list of food don'ts) The Family later Welcomed her Baby Brother gordon Shamblin Jr. Sue's kids often heard stories of what it was like to grow up out on the farm but one of the favorites was when her Step Dad had made the Bull mad and ran him in the pond and He started screaming for the little girls to come help him. Yes Little Girls! Sue and her Sisters could grab that bull by the ring in his nose and lead him anywhere!
She Married her high school sweetheart Bobby Lee White and they had a son Bryian Scott White in 1962. When the baby was just a few months old Bobby died. Sue Ann later met and Married Bobby's older Brother James Dale White and they had a Daughter Cheryl Annette in 1966, and a son James Alonzo in 1969. After their divorce, Sue worked as a waitress and worked her way up as the manager over the dining at Dawn Hill Country Club in Siloam Springs Ark. Sue Later relocated her Family to Dewey, Oklahoma to be closer to her Sister Dolly. After raising the kids she relocated back to Siloam to be closer to her Mother where she would meet and marry Glenn Davidson. They Lived in west Siloam Springs Ok. until Glenn passed in 2009 she moved Back to Dewey to Live with her Daughter and Son-In-Law Cheryl & Jon Shriver.
Sue fought many illnesses in her later years. Thymus Cancer, Myasthenia Gravis, Brain Tumor and nearly loss of all hearing. Then in August of 2014 was diagnosed with Stage 4 Rectal Cancer. She fought a good fight like she did everything she came up against her whole life. Like that bull she would just grab a hold and make it do what she wanted it to do!
She never knew she was just 5'1, she thought she was 6' tall and would have everyone believing it too.
She loved the Lord and would talk about him to anyone who would sit still long enough. She wanted everyone to have the Peace and Love of the Lord through Salvation!
One of the scriptures that got her through each day was Psalm 118:24 she would sing out: This is the Day the Lord has made: We will rejoice and be glad in it.
