Sue was a lifetime member of White Oak Baptist Church and was an active member in her Sunday School Class and Caregivers. Her family and church were the most important things in her life. Mama Sue, as we all called her, loved animals, especially her grand-fur- babies. She always made sure the birds and stray dogs/cats were fed. She loved gardening, canning, taking care of her flowers, sewing, quilting, and needlepoint. She enjoyed working in her yard and spent many afternoons picking up pinecones!!

A Graveside service will take place 3:00pm Monday, August 22, 2022, at White Oak Baptist Church Cemetery, 13943 Buffalo Rd., Archer Lodge. A balloon release in Sue’s honor will take place following the service.

Arrangements are entrusted to Strickland Funeral Home & Crematory, 211 W. Third St., Wendell.

    Mrs. West was a special friend. We would go get coffee, go thrift stores & sometimes just sit and talk. If at times we made the wrong turn, and did not really know where we were, she would never say we were lost–she would say “we are just misplaced!”..I have missed her going with me to the thrift stores. I would try to keep her from buying scraps of material because she already had enough,but she bought them anyway. We always bought bud vases as she was a member of the “Caregivers” at her church and they delivered meals and flowers to the shut ins. She was right there helping with that. Love you Mrs. West!

    Sue was the most delightful person you could ever encounter. She had a smile and kind word always. I loved to see her in Sunday School spreading joy. I know that she is in heaven talking to Brenda and telling her everything that is going on at White Oak. The Martha Class will miss her greatly.

    Sue was one of the first people to speak to me when I came to White Oak. Always a blessing to me and everyone. I will miss you my friend, but know you are with old friends again.
