Sue Ann Vance


Sue Ann Vance of Liberty Hill, Texas passed away on April 27, 2021 at the age of 82. She was born on June 10, 1938 in San Saba, Texas to David Tempelton and Climmie Mae (Hicks) Moss.

Sue is survived by Roy D. Vance, her husband of almost 61 years, and her two sons Donald S. Vance (wife Martha) and Joseph W. Vance (wife Rina), in addition to eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by both of her parents, her older brother David J. Moss, as well as her youngest son Michael J. Vance, and oldest grandchild Christopher J. Vance.

Roy and Sue met in San Antonio, Texas in 1959 while Roy was serving in the U.S. Air Force, and Sue was working for USAA and living at the local YWCA. They were married in Junction, Texas on July 23, 1960. Being a military family, they spent many of their early years together overseas, living for a number of years in each of Italy, England, and Greece, and having their three sons along the way.

Upon their return to the United States they resided in Maryland for several years before finally returning to Texas after Roy’s retirement from the Air Force, and settling in Austin.

For many years the family resided in – what was then – far south Austin, and Sue commuted downtown to work in the office of the Texas Comptroller. With all of the children out of the house, Sue and Roy moved out to the country, buying a house on 10 acres in Liberty Hill, Texas in 1994. Sue retired from the State of Texas in 1997.

By 2017 Roy and Sue were on the move again, moving to Ohio to be near Roy’s sister Genevieve (Jenny) and her family. However the Texan in Sue called once again and in 2020 the pair moved back to Liberty Hill, Texas.

A visitation was held at Beck Funeral Home in Cedar Park, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm on Sunday May 2, 2021. Memorial services and final remembrance were held at the same location on Monday, May 3, 2021 starting at 12:00pm (noon), followed by a short graveside service at Onion Creek Memorial Park in San Leanna, Texas.
