Linda Sue Suttles was born in Rockwood, TN on June 16, 1952. She peacefully passed away on March 3, 2023 surrounded by loved ones. She was 70 years old. She was preceded in death by her one true love Bobby Joe Suttles and two step daughters Penny Suttles and Kathy Young. She was preceded in death by her parents Andrew and Roxie Hill, sisters Hazel (Earl) Carr, Margaret (Doyle) Bowen and brother David Hill. She has left many loved ones behind who loved her dearly. She left behind her daughter Erica (Ray) Rappa, step daughers Sandy Garcia, Shannon (Dewayne) Golliher and Janie Mcafee. She left behind two brothers Bobby (Anna) Hill and Jackie (Jan) Hill and three sisters Maida (Jerry) Thurman, Brenda (Butch) Carr and Tammy Perkins (Lamen) and a sister in law Mary Hill. She had many nieces and nephews, 14 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren whom she loved with all her heart!
She was a wife, mother, grandmother ,sister, friend, aunt, cousin and any other famlly names you can get in there. She enjoyed going out on the boat with BJ and going out with friends. She loved to cook and was ready to cook chocolate gravy two days before she passed. Mom’s friends were family to her. She spent so much time with them and loved them with all her heart. She loved to dance too. She always talked about winning those dance contests with her BJ. I will say she and BJ didn't have much in terms of monetary funds but they were rich in love and giving. My mom didn't have a lot to give and she would give you everything she had. We would argue all the time. She was difficult to get along with at times but she had the biggest heart in the universe. She loved with everything she had. She was one of the friendliest people you would ever meet. She was always one to help others and she helped with love and compassion from her heart. When my mother passed away on March 3, 2023 at 11:55am, the world become a bit darker and I lost a piece of my heart. Her light is now shining and she is with those loved ones who left ahead of her. She missed BJ so much and her momma too, she was ready to meet them there. However, that doesn't make it easier on us that are left behind to mourn her loss. I am thankful she is now happy and one of the last things I said to her, she will never, ever, ever have to be alone again. I love you momma. Until we meet again.
These last couple of months were great spending time with my mom and my last birthday I was able to celebrate in the hospital with her eating cake pops and she sang happy birthday to me. Memories I will cherish for a lifetime. Other things she loved to do was watch her grandchildren and great granddhlldren play sports. She would always say, "Tell _____ I am rooting for them." People will remember her for her love for others and the fun times we shared together because she loved life and there wasn't many times she loved sitting at home. She was the get up and go lets do something and enjoy one another while we have the chance type of person who loved to plan family events so we could have time with one another.
She will have her Celebration of Life on April 8, 2023 at 3pm back at her home in Tennessee. The ceremony will be held in her front yard where her own mother planted a tree and mom loved to see that tree bloom every year in the spring. There we will celebrate and tell stories that I want to be passed down to our children and her grandchildren so they can remember their mamaw and the fun she liked to have. As long as we are alive, she will live on.
