Sue Davis (02-23-2017)

Sue Beth Parker Davis
returned to her heavenly
home on February 16, 2017,
at the age of 68.
Sue’s devotion to her
family and her firm belief
in God supported her
throughout her life and
ultimately gave her peace.
Sue’s fight for life began
prematurely on November
19, 1948 as a three pound
baby, given little hope for
life. She was born at home
in Haile, Louisiana, with
the help of Mama Lula Bell.
Sue continued her life as a
devoted member of Haile
Baptist Church, which was
the same church as generations
before her did.
Sue made many life long friends through her work at
Century Tel, in Marion. Through her family’s love for barrel
racing, the friends she made there she considered to
be family. On December 5, 1970, Sue married Johnny Ray
Davis. Johnny and Sue had three children – Heath, Lance
and Mandi. After the unexpected loss of Johnny, Sue was a
most devoted mother to their children. She later welcomed
Heath’s wife Michelle, and Mandi’s husband David Black
into her family as her own. Her love and support to familycontinued through the arrival of seven grandchildren –
Gage, Hayden, Parker, Khloe, Luke, Garrison and Paige.
“Sue Sue” loved her children and grandchildren more
than life itself. She believed taking care of her family
was God’s purpose for her life.
Welcoming her into Heaven was: Her husband,
Johnny Davis; her parents, Jake and Marie Parker, as
well as her grandparents.
Left to cherish her memory are: Her children, grandchildren;
three sisters – Jamie Russell, Sandy Gardner
and Sherry McWiggins, and her most beloved birthday
gift, her brother Hal; as well as many cousins, nieces
and nephews.
Honoring as pallbearers were Lanny Parker, Virgil
Brantley, J.D. Hixon, Gary Harrell, Scotty Aulds,
Charles Gardner, Peyton McKinnie, and Caleb McWiggins.

Haile, Stan Parker and Marvin McKinnie.
