My long time friend Susan Hall died Sunday morning, October 11, 2020. Susan has fought Parkinson’s Disease for many years. We have watched the perils of this disease rack her body. Her children Jennifer and Matt and her grandchildren were the greatest joy in her life. She adored her children and grandchildren.
But, I don’t want to think of how Susan was these last few years—I want to remember Susan how she was for her life! Susan was a person who truly loved young people. She gave countless hours to the youth of First Baptist Church of Magee. She attended Super Summer at MC probably longer than she should have! She knew the path to eternal life. She wanted everyone she knew to walk that path. Susan rode the church bus every time it left with teenagers. She was front and center for young people.
She loved Simpson Academy. She and her husband Greg gave countless hours at the school. Greg worked with the football team “wrapping” ankles for athletics and lots more! Susan stood in the press box filming games. She stood at basketball games filming. Whatever was needed, Greg and Susan were the go-to people.
Susan loved Peoples Bank where she worked for years.
Susan was a charter member of the Ollie Mayhall BYW of the First Baptist Church of Magee and the Bonco Babes.
Our children were close in age. Greg and Susan always helped me…they cared about my sons…and I’ve never forgotten the love she showed Dickey, Larkin, and Breck. She was there for me when Larkin died. She was there for me when my father and mother died. She was there for me when Gilbert died. Susan has always been there for me.
Susan had the most wonderful smile and gladly shared that smile with others. She was always laughing…and mercy, she could tell us all what to do! She was the boss lady!
Susan had so many friends. People loved her. She graduated from Magee High School and remained close with many of her classmates.
Susan made a difference in my life. She made a difference in anyone she knew.
My heart is broken…but I know she is laughing and hugging everyone.
Susan taught us to love. Susan taught us to be involved. Susan taught us to do for others. What a blessing her life was to all who knew her.
