Sue's family affectionately referred to her as, Big Mama, and her influence spanned many generations. She took pride in caring for her children, grandchildren and great -grandchildren. All of whom will attest that Big Mama's witty, practical, loving demeanor cultivated a legacy of success in the family.
Sue also undoubtedly had an immeasurable effect on the community. For 20 years, she held Sunday school classes for children at Maples Memorial Methodist Church. Sue was treasurer at the local Olive Branch charity thrift shop and regularly contributed to the Angel Tree program.
She enjoyed being with friends and family; was a sharp, spry woman, avid golfer, square dancer, and astute card player.
She is survived by her sons Robert and Todd, as well as seven grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and many other family members. She was preceded in death by her husband Clay and their eldest son, Ronald.
Her tolerance, compassion, and spirit will forever be cherished by us all.
