Betty Sue Antwine

November 29, 1934 - June 23, 2017

Betty Sue Antwine, 82, died Friday, June 23 in McKinney, Texas.

She was born November 29, 1934 to Royce and Mary Mires in Adams, Okla. The second of four daughters, Sue grew up on a farm, and graduated from Adams High School in 1952. She met her husband Drue Billy Antwine (Bill) at Central Christian College in Bartlesville, Okla. later that year in a business class. They were married June 14, 1955 and celebrated 62 wonderful years together.

Sue graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and taught kindergarten and first grade for more than 25 years. A woman of many talents, she was well-known for being an award-winning seamstress and baking her delicious homemade rolls. She and Bill were active members in the church of Christ, and spent 14 years in New Jersey, building a congregation in Bridgewater. After moving back to Adams, Okla., Sue and Bill spent many summers working at Black Mesa Bible Camp as teachers and bible quiz coordinators. 

Following retirement in 1995, they moved to Edmond, Okla. and enjoyed nearly 20 years of traveling, including a one-week vacation each year with their entire family since 1997. Due to health concerns, Sue and Bill made the decision to move closer to family in 2014, and relocated to McKinney.

Sue is survived by her husband Bill Antwine of McKinney, Texas; children Janelle Ball and husband Greg, Kerry Antwine and wife Sheila, Myra Stanhope and husband Doug, Cynthia Kay and husband Robert; grandchildren Jennifer Booker and husband Kevin, Jonathan Ball and wife Gina, Nicole Lyons and husband Timothy, Jill Sloan and husband Matthew, Kyle Stanhope and wife Meredith, J.D. Stanhope, Michael Kay, and Brian Stanhope; and great-grandchildren Josiah and Lydia Booker, Abbey and Stella Garner, Caleb and Peyton Lyons, Levi Sloan, and Jace and Bella Stanhope; and sisters Dolores Hanna and husband Paul, Joan Chuesberg and husband Leon, and Vida Walker and husband Joe.

She is preceded in death by her parents Royce and Mary Mires.

So sorry Brother Bill for your loss. Think of you often. Enjoyed the years working together. I'm working for city of Guymon cemetery maintenance. We're doing well. In Christian love, Hales Lyndol and Pat Hale, June 27, 2017 Billy, I'm so sorry to read of your loss. Sue was a wonderful lady who will be greatly missed by all. I don't have to remind you of how much you and Sue meant to my mom and dad. They couldn't have been any more proud of you both. You are in my prayers. We know where she is and that we will join her soon!
Joe Maple, June 27, 2017 Dear Bill & family, I have such fond memories of the years working with both you & Sue at Guymon Schools. Sorry to hear of your loss, but hope the many wonderful memories will help to heal the pain of your loss. Sincerely, Ken & Rae Jean Rae Jean Humble, June 27, 2017 Billy and Family, So very sorry about Sue, May God Bless You All in your time of sorrow,My Prayers are with you. Dorothy Littrell, June 26, 2017 I have many fond memories of Sundays growing up when Bill and Sue came to Sublette, Kansas so he could preach and earn a little extra money (probably very little) while going to college and raising a family. It is also a great joy to have been able to enjoy a friendship with Bob and Cindy Kay and Michael over the last 20+ years. I would love to be able to attend the service but know that you and your family are in my prayers and will continue to be. I know the last several years have been hard for Sue and she is now at rest.
