"Miss Sudie" was a special person who touched our lives in a certain way and having known her, we will never be the same. For those who knew her, she will be remembered as a caring, generous, compassionate Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother, Great-Great-grandmother and friend. She cherished her family and friends who were the love of her life. She shared so many beautiful gifts with others, her love, laughter, smile, wisdom, sense of humor, joy and wit. Her love surrounded us and comforted us. She will surely be missed.
