Sue was a longtime member of the Westgate Church of Christ where she taught Sunday school and read to children’s classes in the Westgate Christian School. An avid reader in her later life especially, she was known for checking out books weekly from the church library and helping to review the books. She helped deliver meals with Meals on Wheels. She appreciated being part of the church Kit Club. She enjoyed flowers and plants and gardening. Not so fond of weeds, pine straw and sweeping out the leaves in the garage. She was also a sports lover, and especially loved watching the Alabama Crimson Tide and watched every Atlanta Braves baseball game she could. She was proud of her grandchildren and all of their accomplishments.
Sue was loved greatly by all that knew her and she will be missed by her family and friends.
