Posted By Hall-Wynne On September 7, 2013 @ 12:00 am In Obituaries | No Comments

Beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and aunt died Saturday, September 7, 2013 at the home of her daughter in Wendell, NC.

Born and raised in Smoaks, SC she moved to Durham in 1943 and worked in various retail positions, retiring from Central Carolina Bank in 1989.

She was a caring mother who loved and enjoyed spending time with her family. Sue had a strong faith in God and Jesus Christ and a strong belief in her church’s mission to serve others. She was an active member of the First Baptist Church for more than 70 years and held many positions there throughout her life. She was a member of the Joy Sunday School Class; Senior Adult of the Year in 1997; and Church Treasurer for 20 years. She also served on the Kitchen Committee for over 40 years, planning, preparing and serving food for meals, receptions and other events. She enjoyed the fellowship of her church friends and gave encouragement to many through those relationships. She was also loved and admired by many friends whom she met through business, community, and local activities. Sue will be dearly missed but her legacy will live on through the lives she touched daily.

She is survived by her daughters, Dorothy Smith of Alexandria, VA; Beth Rickman of Durham and Peggy Sullivan of Wendell; her granddaughters, Tai Mercer Mark, Rae Robinson Chad, and Alex Thompson Michael; her great grandchildren, Erin and Emory Mercer and Maddox Thompson. She is also survived by her sisters, Eva Beach and Helen Cooper; her brothers, Herbert Thomas, Ray Thomas, Jake Thomas, and Frankie Thomas all of South Carolina; and many nieces and nephews.

Condolence from Joann McClintock on September 15th, 2013 12:00 am

Dear Dorothy and family,
I was so sad to hear of Sue’s passing.
Kelly called me and told me last week.
Sue and I were neighbors at north pointe apts. She was always so sweet and kind to me. I would come home from work and her beautiful flowers always made me smile.
I missed her when I moved, and tried to contact to her once or twice.
I left her a message wishing her a Merry Christmas last year.
I know your hearts are heavy but I hope you can find comfort in knowing how many lives she touched. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.
Sincerely, Joann McClintock
