She was born on Aug. 6, 1921, in Granby, to Arvin Guy Kelly and Cecil Ozella York Kelly. She attended grade school and high school in Granby, graduating from Granby High School in 1939.
Sue married Charles Warren “Warnie” Bliler in 1941.
Warnie entered the Army in 1943 and was stationed in California, Texas and North Carolina. Sue was fortunate to be able to accompany him and live in all of those states before he was discharged and they moved back to Diamond. They both enjoyed reminiscing about the Army days the rest of their lives. Sue and Warnie later lived in Granby, for several years. They had one child, a daughter, Kathy Gay Bliler Hasbrook, and considered their son-in-law, Robert “Bob” V. Hasbrook, as their son.
Sue worked at the Granby Community Clinic for several years as an office/doctor’s assistant. She enjoyed helping patients at the clinic and visiting with old schoolmates and friends at the Granby Old Town Mining Days.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Gay and Bob Hasbrook Bartlesville. Also surviving are two step-granddaughters, Connie Cook, Neosho, and Nancy Wilcox, Joplin, and their spouses and children which include five step-great-grandchildren and one step-great-great-grandchild.
