Bettye Sue, a true Southern Belle, has touched our hearts forever and will be dearly missed by all that knew her. She loved deeply and unconditionally. Her focus was always her family and she generously gave them love and support. She never met a stranger and many of our friends affectionately called her Momma, Momma Bear, Miss Sue or Grandma.
