Sue Carol Killion was born in Humansville, Missouri on October 6, 1934, the daughter of Clyde Rufus Earnest and Edith Marie (Durbin) Earnest.  She spent childhood working the family farm alongside her brother and sister. She graduated from Humansville High School in 1952.  She enrolled in Ozark Bible College in Joplin, Missouri, where she met Ben Killion. The two were married August 16, 1953.  Their first ministry took them to Jasper, Missouri before serving five decades at Hillside Christian Church in Nowata, Oklahoma.  She spent 65 years serving alongside Ben, supporting their many ministries.  In addition to their ministry, she worked at First National Bank, retiring as Vice President after 24 years.  She enjoyed traveling the world with family, friends, and Ben; and collected a memento from every place they visited.  Spending time, giving hugs, and creating memories with her grandkids and great grandkids was her greatest joy.

Sue is survived by her son Alan and wife Cathy Killion, daughter Carol and husband Page Cole.  Grandchildren Grant and Kylie Killion, Blaine and Sami Killion, Clark Killion, Garrett Killion, Chad Cole, and Abby Cole.  Great grandchildren Benjamin, Campbell, Lucas, and Nicolas Killion.  One sister Ramona Leake and sister-in-law Ruth Cash and several nieces and nephews.
