Susie was born November 24, 1931 in Anson County, daughter of the late Owen Wright and Dezzie Curlee Wright Parnell. She was a graduate of J.W. Cannon High School and began her career as a secretary at Gates Rubber Company.

She loved helping Alan with their garden, always storing more than enough vegetables to feed family and friends until the next harvest.

She is survived by daughter Janet F. Marsh and husband Ken; son Mick Fink and wife Maria; grandchildren, Aly Lemons and husband Isaiah, Sydney Marsh and Noah Marsh; and brother Frank Parnell and wife Ollie.
