With remembrance of Mrs. Sue Coonce, who was the most dedicated server and witness for the Lord that most would have had the honor of meeting. She was blessed with a sense of humor. Your birthdays and special days were not forgotten. You were always encouraged to eat with offerings of seconds and thirds. She had a special way to make you feel comfortable in her home, or church. She was a peace-keeper. She loved her family, pets and garden. Heaven has another angel, whom we loved and appreciated and we say, “Thank you Lord!”

Services honoring her life were held at the Sweet Springs Baptist Church.  Committal prayer and burial followed in the church cemetery.
