Sue Marie Barnes Hendricks

Woodward, Okla. — Sue Marie Barnes Hendricks was born on January 9, 1942 to Tom Henry Barnes and Margie Marie (Shook) Barnes in Qualls, Oklahoma.  Sue was one of eleven children and loved being a part of a big family.  She loved having older and younger sisters. She  was close to each of her brothers and sisters.

Sue attended grade school in Kirby, Oregon, Gore, Oklahoma and White Oak Elementary in the small community of Qualls, OK  and then attended Tahlequah High School.

On July 9, 1961, she married Howard Earl Hendricks in Buffalo, Oklahoma.  To this union three children were born; Sharon Kay, Houston Earl and James Alan.

During her married life the Hendricks family lived in Ashland and Ulysses, Kansas, Mooreland,  Sharon, and Tahlequah, Oklahoma, and Follett Texas.

Sue held a variety of jobs in her adult life. She sewed for the Fruit of the Loom factory and Trego’s where  she made western jackets. She also worked for TG&Y, worked with special needs children and  as a school secretary, but her favorite jobs were the last two she had as a Duckwall’s manager and a care giver.

After her children were grown she lived a short time in Wichita and Hutchinson, Kansas with her first cousin, Florence.  From there she moved to Big Piney, Wyoming and lived there with her older sister, Bea, and brother-in-law, Richard.  She thoroughly enjoyed living in Wyoming, she loved the weather, the mountains, and her sister’s family that she grew so close to. But  she came back to Oklahoma to be close to her grandchildren as Kay Lynn had started playing basketball and the boys had started playing football.

In 2001, she moved back to Tahlequah to provide care for her parents.  She lived with them until August of 2005, at which time she came back to Shattuck to watch the younger grandsons, Austin, Lane and Garrison play football.  She worked for Duckwall’s until the business closed and became a care giver for Carmen Lopez  Sr.
