Mary Sue Palmer Rye of Nanjemoy, MD, was born November 30, 1935 in Snow Hill, Arkansas. She and her husband Delbert Rye were married November 14, 1952 in Westlake, LA. Mary Sue was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her hobbies were cake decorating, painting, playing the piano and playing Dominos with friends and family.
