Sue's career began at the Macon Telegraph writing routine reporting assignments. She quickly advancing to writing feature articles and occasional special assignments reporting on such things as the dirigible Macon while under construction in Ohio and writing about historic homes around Middle Georgia.

    She edited the Sunday supplement for the Sunday Telegraph and News until the shortage of newsprint caused the publisher to eliminate the supplement.

    When World War II erupted, Sue was appointed War Editor; she led both charity and war bond drives. Not long after the war ended, Sue was promoted to Farm Editor; the only female farm editor at the nation at that time. Sue gained national recognition as the Editor for a highly successful farm page in the nation.  

     With her extensive knowledge in the farming industry, men across the country respected Sue and her work. Men from all around the southeast came to her lectures. She was named Woman of the Year by the Progressive Farmer magazine.

     As if she didn’t have enough to do, she also wrote a text book for third graders to teach them about soil and conservation. The book was used for several years in the South.

     Sue wrote numerous free-lance articles about a multitude of subjects─ sharing events in Hollywood, the Original Prom Party and How Cookbooks Once Were Guides To Child Rearing. Add to that, Collier’s published an article concerning the accents in Gone With the Wind in 1940, and she reviewed books on GWTW for the Macon Telegraph and other publications.


     Never married, Sue remained close to her family and frequently visited with her sisters in Milledgeville, Georgia, Texas, New York and Florida. At the slightest suggestion, she was ready to go fishing.

    Although Sue retired from the Telegraph, she continued to write her twice-weekly column—her last column appeared two weeks before her death
