This is an email I received 2008–07–08 from Wayne Bennett – Sue Jean's brother:
Sue is now living in Belton and as you heard, she is not doing well.
She has had a brain tumor, stroke and most recently a heart attack.  She does not use the internet but I don't think she would mind if you put some information on your site about her. I am not home for the rest of this week but when I return, I will send you Sue's address. I know she would love to hear from all of her class.
Thank you for thinking of Sue Jean.
I have often thought of Sue Jean.  She and I were good friends thru?out HS.  I would like very much to be able to write to her.  I have some very good memories of my HS days with her.  We shared a lot of laughs and good times, especially in Bullet Bob's class.  My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to Sue.  She will always have a very special place in my heart and prayers and thoughts.

Update:  Dear Class Of 1965,  I wanted to update you on Sue Jean Bennett. Around the middle of March of this year, Sue had a stroke and heart attack during the same event.  It was her second of each. After several critical days she started to improve. She suffered some brain damage but is talking and able to walk with help.  Sue is presently residing in a nursing home in Goldthwaite.
If you wish, Cards can be sent to David's address at: 107 FM 574 W., Goldthwaite TX 76844

Dear Class of 1965,
I am Sue's brother and wanted to report how Sue is doing. Sue is in a rest home in Goldthwaite where after her 2nd stroke and heart attack she has resided for the last three years. Her health is not good, but she is comfortable and well taken care of. Her heart is very weak, so she is not active and her memory is is poor due to the stroke damage. She does attend Sunday church service and enjoys singing with her friends. She can however recall her years in Rockdale and named all her friend who lived on Murry street and her basketball days. Although Sue went through some rough years prior to coming to live with us, she is a Christian and is saved because of her faith in Christ. If you would like to send her a note, my address is:
