She was an avid gardener who loved to take care of her flowers. She attended McCowan Creek Church of God most of her lifetime until her health kept her from going. She was also a retiree of American Enka after 36 years of service, but most important in her life was her caring for all of her family.

Grandchildren: Brian Holt, Vicky Shore, Randy Buckner, Janet Susong Williams, Jill Susong Phillips, Willie Douthat, Crystal Susong Jarnigan, Rusty Douthat, Rick Susong, Kari Susong Jefferson, Jonathan Hampton and Kandi Greenlee and 17 great grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, April 2, 2018 at 7:00 PM in the chapel of Mayes Mortuary, with Rev. Ned Ramsey officiating. The family will receive friends prior to the service on Monday, from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM. Graveside and burial services will be at 1:00 PM, Tuesday, April 3, 2018.
