She was also affectionately known as one of the "Cornbread Fletcher's" Sue loved fashion and looking her very best. If you were in her presence, she often spoke her mind. She loved caring for others and there was nothing she wouldn't do for anyone.
She would frequently say "SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, MEAN WHAT YOU SAY, DON'T JUST SAY YOU LOVE ME BUT SHOW ME YOU LOVE ME".
After a lengthy illness, God called her home on May 29th, 2019. "She fought a good fight and she'd finished her course" Gaining her wings, she leaves to cherish: two sons, Rev.
