Milton, I was very shocked and saddened when I read the newspaper of Susie’s passing. The Woodle and Freeman families have my deepest sympathy. Susie and I were long-time co-workers at N.C. State Ports Authority in Wilmington. She always had a beautiful smile and she was a very pleasant lady to work with. She always talked about her sister Millie, and her little nephew Ashley, whom she loved dearly. I remember the time when Susie, Marian, Lottie, and I would all carpool together to go to K & W Cafeteria during our lunch hour. Long after I left the Ports, Susie and I kept in contact. Also in our passing along the way, Susie was always asking about my Mother, and my sisters, Bunnie and Janice. She was a very caring person. After Janice and Susie would often times stop and talk along their way, Janice would come home to tell me that she saw Susie today. Then, I will never forget that day, about 9 1/2 years ago, when I was about to pull out of the hospital parking lot, Susie rode up beside me (on her way to visit her friend in the hospital); I rolled my window down and told her that Janice just passed away in the hospital. Susie said “what” in shock and disbelief. After I had arrived home, it wasn’t about twenty minutes when Susie came by our home to express her condolences to us. I am very thankful to have met Susie—a very kind and compassionate lady. Milton and Susie’s family - I pray that you will find peace and strength in knowing that Susie is now in Heaven in the Mighty Arms of our Jesus Savior Christ.

Susie will be sorely missed by a lot of people including myself. She was always smiling and happy to be around people. Susie stepped up to the plate when Clara from Morganton, NC died before she could become Department President of the American Legion Auxiliary Department of NC. Susie was gracious enough to even say that she would honor all of Clara's appointments, thoughts and ideas for the year. No one else wanted to step up and say they would take the position for Clara, but Susie did. So that is how she and Milton were Department President and Department Commander in the same year. Milton and family, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow, but also know that she is in a better place now, out of suffering and pain. May the Lord wrap his loving arms around you all.

Susie was also so sweet to me at Wilmington Health and whenever we went to the legion with my in-laws (James and Patsy Clifton). Prayers lifted up for her family.

Joseph and Millie, I was sorry to learn of the passing of Susie. I don't know if you remember me. I lived in the same apartment complex on Jefferson Street many years ago.

Milton: Pat and I are so sorry for your loss. We worked with Susie at Singer Corp. many years ago and she was a dear friend to us. She always kept us laughing and I enjoyed visiting your home and talking Navy with you as I was in the Navy. Susie brought so much joy to everyone and I know that you will miss her in the days ahead but just know that she is fellowshiping with her precious family in heaven where there is no pain or sorrow. You will be in my prayers

To my long time friend MiltonWoodle, My heart was broken to have heard the loss of your love, Susie. It was through my parents that I met Susie and you. It was Susie who took me and Sarah to meet her parents. There I milked my first cow. Our families had cookouts, shared laughter and tears together. We have always loved you both. Susie had even insisted before my wedding to try my wedding gown on and stand on her stairs while she took pictures. We all cried. My sweet long time friend will surely be missed but never forgotten. Whit that said, to the Freeman families and Woodle families please accept Butch and my deepest condolences.We are praying for all of you. Love Nanny

Praying for Milton and Susie’s family. I have fond memories with Susie and her family on the farm. I think that was my first and only time milking a cow!

Milton so sorry to hear about Susie, I did not know she was so ill. She will be missed by all. Seems like she was always doing something to help others. Her and Hezzie were close growing up, not just cousins but good friends. She will be remembered by all who knew her. Hezzie and Sue Patrick.
