Graveside Services will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2022 beginning at 11 a.m. from New Bethel Cemetery in Braggs, with Brother Steve Stephens officiating and Dunklin Funeral Home directing.

Sue is survived by her daughters, Becky (Melvin) Blackmon, Linda (Henry) Lynn, Martha (Larry) Blackmon; two sisters, Ann Orr and Jane Fenn; along with four grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

Two ladies who stayed with Sue became family as well, Edna Rudolph and Glenda McMeans, along with Willie Ed Moore who kept her yard, when she was no longer able.

Sue was born on April 17, 1936, and was the oldest of three daughters. Elbert and Sue were married for 59 years. She loved flowers, plants and a garden. She had a green thumb and enjoyed being outdoors, along with hunting and fishing.  Sue and Elbert started the Camp Creek Hunting Club. She was a founding member of Lowndes Academy.

The family would like to thank Annette Rudolph for her care and precious love given to their mother.

Even though you left us, we know “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory, no one can steal”.
