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!!
