Cayce Sue Hogue was born on November 29, 1987 in Alamosa, Colorado. She died December 16, 2018 near La Jara, Colorado.
She was the daughter of Susan Rowley of McKinney, Texas, and Timothy Hogue, who preceded her in death.

She was most recently a nursing student at Trinidad State Junior College in Alamosa, with plans for a career in trauma nursing. She had previously attended the University of Oklahoma, where she was a member of the Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority; she attended Adams State University as well.
Cayce loved her church families at both First United Methodist Church in Alamosa and in McKinney. She was involved in many ways throughout the years, including as a member of the bell choirs, a camper and counselor at Beaver Creek Youth Camp, Bible study, and the United Methodist Women’s luncheon.
She loved working with children, and was formerly a pre-school teacher in Colorado Springs and in McKinney. She enjoyed crafting, reading, and all outdoor activities – lakes and mountains were her favorite spots. Baking was one of her favorite activities, and she often enjoyed making treats for her friends and co-workers.
Cayce was a bright, shining light and a devoted friend. She loved family gatherings. Her greatest joy was as mom to her son, Jameson.
