Ida Marie “Sue” Sullivan

It is our deepest sadness to announce the passing of our Mother, Ida Marie “Sue” Sullivan of Beckley.   She received her angel wings on Saturday, September 8th, 2018.

Sue was preceded in death by her mother, Roxie Branham Sears and her father, William Thomas Gibson; two sisters, Lilly Clark, Christine Brammer and Virginia Banks and brother, William “Bill” Gibson as well as two grandchildren.  Two brothers survive, Lowell Gibson and Gary Branham and wife, Linda of Muskeegon, Michigan.

Left to cherish her memories are her three daughters, Paula Thompson of Beckley, who also was her caregiver and fiancé Ed Vanness of Virginia, Ella Cox and husband, Howard of Beckley and Debbie Roberts and husband, Chuck of Murfreesboro, TN; three grandchildren, Caitlin “Katie” Earp and husband, Jimmy of Flushing, Ohio, Bryana Cox and fiancé, Logan Wriston and Mark Holdren and wife Heather of Arnett, WV; two great-grandchildren, Haley and Konnor Holdren of Arnett.

Thanks to Peggy, a special niece, and to David Linkswiler of Beckley; Tony and Michelle Gibson and their daughters, Tricia and Madison of Daniels.

Our hearts are broken and saddened.  Mother went to a beautiful place with no more pain.

2nd Timothy 4:7-7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

Our Father Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name.  Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.   Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever, Amen.

Until we see you again, Mother, we will love and miss you, the rest of our lives.

A gathering of family and friends will be Wednesday, September 12 from 6 to 7:00 pm at the Melton Mortuary.   The family suggests donations of sympathy be made to the Bowers Hospice House, PO Box 1472, Beckley, WV   25802.
