Very special friends Katherine Neese, Jo Ann Henderson and her neighbor, Cindy. A host of many relatives and friends.
Susie, affectionately known as “Mama Susie” by the children in her life, was a faithful member of Mt. Zion M B church and gave of her service cheerfully. She was a kind and generous woman with a kind and giving heart. Susie loved her family and was always there to share her support and advise. Family was important to her and she always put their needs first. Her biggest joy was to see her family gathered together in support of each other. Her presence will be deeply missed by her family and all who knew her, but her memory will live in our hearts forever.
