She was born April 28, 1956, in La Porte, Indiana, to Robert and Helen (McCown) Klinefelter.


Mama H (as she was also known) was always the first to support her family, her church and stood tall in her support of our law enforcement and military.   She simply was always there!


Sue was a 1974 graduate of La Porte High School. She went on to fulfill her lifelong goal and graduated from Purdue University December 17, 1999 where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sports Marketing and Business Management. Sue was a member of the First Church of God in La Porte where she volunteered her time. Sue loved to travel and often visited the Smoky Mountains with family and friends. She loved the ocean and had a passion for watching the dolphins swim. Sue cherished her trips to Las Vegas to spend countless hours sitting at the slot machines with her dearest friend, Mary. She was a retired flight attendant for Northwest and Pinnacle Airlines. Sue was currently working for Kabelin Ace Hardware West, La Porte.  She loved sports and following her kids and grandkids in the sports they participated in. Sue was considered the Ball Field Momma. She always put family first and herself last.

Henriott of La Porte, and Dawn Mason of La Porte; two siblings, Robert (Sherri) Klinefelter of The Villages, FL, Patricia (John) Galloway of Hebron, IN; five grandchildren, Haley Eriks, Kamden Robert Henriott, Kaysen William Henriott, David Mason, and Payden Goss; bonus granddaughter, Taylor Liverman; and numerous nephews, nieces and cousins.
