Sue Ann (Waller) Windham

February 17, 1947 ~ November 4, 2022 (age 75) 75 Years Old


Sue Ann (Waller) Windham was born on February 17, 1947 in Corsicana, Texas, to Vernon Lee Waller and Dorothy Jean Ashford.  She grew up in Kerens, Texas, and went to Kerens High School.  Sue loved driving her Chevelle SS 396 4 speed along those country roads! 

After graduation, Sue worked as a phlebotomist in Waco, Texas, and married James Raymond ‘Butch’ Pavelka.  They had three children together, Todd and twins, Chris and Christi.  Sue moved to Garland, Texas a few years later.

Sue helped run Windham Manufacturing in Dallas, Texas, for many years, and she LOVED antiquing! Over time, she filled her home with antiques from all over.  Sue began working for Home Depot in the 90’s and became a ‘Do It Yourselfer’ extraordinaire.  She always had a project going in her house, room by room.

Most days, you could find Sue in her kitchen at the breakfast bar with a cup of coffee, ready to hear all about your day.  Her grandkids called her ‘ShuShu’, and soon everyone did.  Sue loved Jesus and her family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Vernon and Lorene Waller and Bobbie Ray and Dorothy Ashford; and her brothers, Randy Waller and Johnny Waller.

Sue is survived by her children, Todd Pavelka, Sr. and his wife Teresa, Chris Pavelka and his wife Angie, and Christi Wilmany and her husband Clint; grandchildren - Matthew Pavelka, Jr., Adrianna Pavelka, Landree Pavelka, Farrah Smith, Bradain Smith, Cecile Pavelka, Tehya Pavelka, Wyatt Pavelka, Savannah Pavelka, Brooke Prock, and Waylon Wilmany; great-grandchildren, Steven Adams and Benjamin Adams; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.
