Su was born on June 13, 1923 to Alvin and Nell Bouton Boozer in Ovalo, Texas.  She attended and graduated from Ovalo High School in 1941, where she was a cheerleader and a volleyball player.  Two days after her 18th birthday, she married Clifford Oliver Swindle and the couple settled in Tuscola.  For 20 years, Su was the office manager for Clifford at C&T Auto in Tuscola.  They moved to Abilene in 1981, and following Clifford’s death in 1982, Su started a 25-year career as the office manager for the Abilene Slowpitch Softball Association, retiring in January of 2008.  She was awarded a lifetime membership to the Association in July of 1996.  Su was a proud Texan and enjoyed watching her Cowboys and Rangers.  When she moved to Illinois to be close to her daughter, she refused to watch football or baseball unless it was a Cowboys’ or Rangers’ game.
