She read her Bible daily and studied it with sincerity. Mary Sue was a writer of poems and stories that centered around God and her family. She took great pride in caring for her family and home. She was known for her love of laughter and being the ultimate prankster. She was a big jokester at heart. Mary Sue was also a lover of games and would play any and all with her family and friends, always with a cup of coffee that she had salted. She was a talented crafter, especially with sewing and knitting projects. Mary Sue’s giving nature and love of laughter and life will forever be remembered for generations to come. Mary Sue was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and siblings, Betty Jean Lewis and Ross Edward Rice.
