Sue was born on June 15, 1955 in Parkersburg, WV to William E. (Bill) and Evie Roberts Clovis. She graduated from St. Marys High School in St. Marys, WV in 1973 and attended Ohio Valley University in Parkersburg, WV and Abilene Christian University in Abilene, TX. She was married to the love of her life, Randall Conaway on January 1, 1977. Together they lived and raised a family in Kingsport, TN for 34 years before moving to Longview 4 years ago. Mrs. Conaway was a very selfless, generous and life giving woman who loved helping and serving others. She was a longtime member of the Church of Christ both in Kingsport and Longview, and was an active member of both communities. She found great joy in helping at her children's elementary schools and eventually enjoyed working as a teacher's aid. Above all else, Sue loved being a wife and mom, and did so with all of her heart.
She was preceded in death by her father, William E (Bill) Clovis, II; her father-in-law, Thomas Conaway and her mother-in-law, Mabel Conaway; and two brothers-in-law, Steve Conaway and Jeff Conaway.
