She was preceded in death by husband Jack Barnett; son Chris Nelon, brother James Smith; sister Geneva Smith; parents Carl Smith, Joe and Roberta Setsor.
Sue was born in the hills of Tennessee of which she loved dearly, but her life would take her around the world even spending time in the Middle East. She always had a good story to tell about her adventures. She followed all that travel by taking on the greatest challenge of all being a working mom, to this end she gave all she had. Her transition to Grandma was even better….May every family be blessed with such a matriarch, she will be missed every day.
A graveside service was held on Thursday, March 25, at Prater’s Chapel Cemetery in Clifton with Roger Reece officiating.
