Special lifelong friend David Dugger. Sue had about a kazillion friends that loved her and claimed her as their own. Her family was a large one. Through the years everyone has had so many visits at Holidays and just dropping by to say hello, Sue never knew a stranger. Everyone that knew her knows that she loved life, loved her family, and the “Branch”. She is probably one of the toughest, sassiest women that her loved ones were blessed to know. Remember the good times we shared with Sue, shed a tear or two, miss her often, but celebrate her life well lived. She’s yelling “Wild Boar” from heaven now.
Thank you to Mountain City Care Center for providing such loving care to Sue in her final years. Graveside services were held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday November 22, 2020 at Dugger Cemetery. Due to Covid-19 guidelines there will be no visitation. Honorary pallbearers were Jerry Hodge, Joseph Hatley, Chad Greenwell, Cody Greenwell, Adam Ward, and David Dugger.
