Sharon Sue “Susie” Park was born November 19, 1942 at Harris Hospital in Ft. Worth, TX to Kenneth and Elizabeth Webb. After graduating from RL Paschal High School, she attended Texas Tech University where she became a member of Alpha Chi Omega. In 1964 she married the love of her life, Jerry Park, to whom she was married for almost 50 years. She credits Jerry with supporting her continued education which included a Master of Education from Central State University and a Doctorate of Education from Oklahoma State University in 1989.
Susie spent a lifetime in educating others from elementary to college level. Her passion was special education students. She also owned and operated her own non-profit school that focused on tutoring special needs students. In retirement, she continued her education of others by authoring children’s books, and eventually accomplished her lifelong goal of becoming a published author.
Susie continued her devotion to Alpha Chi Omega throughout her lifetime. She loved traveling, sewing, quilting and reading. Her favorite place on earth was her beloved Rocky Mountains.
