Sue Wren Horne, a homemaker and retired librarian, died of complications from diabetes Friday at Talbot Hospice House in Easton. The Easton resident was 70.

Born Sue Wren in Bryn Mawr, Pa., she earned a home economics degree at the University of Delaware in 1956 and worked for Curtis Publishing Co. in Philadelphia as a market research analyst for The Saturday Evening Post.

She was later a statistician for Virginia Polytechnic Institute in Blacksburg, Va., and the Humble Oil & Refining Co. and the Jefferson Parish Library System, both in New Orleans. After moving to Easton in 1965, she served for five years as the assistant librarian at the Country School in Easton before retiring in 1979 because of poor health.

She was married for nearly 44 years to William S. Horne, now a judge with the Second Circuit Court of Maryland.

Mrs. Horne enjoyed travel, golf and bowling. She also played folk guitar.

Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Christ Episcopal Church, 11 S. Harrison St., Easton, where she was a communicant and sang in the choir.

In addition to her husband, survivors include two daughters, Linda H. Prochaska of Easton and Amy H. Kolligian of Orange, Conn.; two brothers, James E. Wren of Stone Harbor, N.J., and William Christopher Wren of Arlington, Va.; and two grandchildren. A son, William S. Horne II, died in 1970.
