Mrs. Watwood passed away peacefully Wednesday, Oct. 10. She was born Dec. 11, 1937, in Crane Hill. She was graduate of Woodlawn High School. Sue was a longtime and faithful member of Deerfoot Baptist Church, formerly 85th Street Baptist Church, where she was a devoted Financial Secretary for 22 years. While an active church member, she graciously and humbly served on almost every committee as well as Nursery Director and taught her beloved three, four and five year olds in Sunday School.  Sue’s life revolved around her family, her “church family”, especially her children in Sunday School, and her friends. She was a strong and kind woman and will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, John Henry and Josephine Elizabeth Wood; her sister, Ruth Wood Garrett; and her brother, Herald Dean Wood.

Survivors include her loving husband of 54 years, Harvey Watwood; daughters, Brenda and Amy (Nick) Hill; and three granddaughters, Nicole (Joseph) Sturgeon, Natalie Hill and Neely Hill; her sister, Rachel Wood Fisher; her sister-in-law, Myrna Loy Googe Wood of Savannah, Ga.; and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in her memory to the Big Oak Ranch, P.O. Box 507, Springville, AL 35146.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to AlaCare Hospice for their kindness, compassion, and caring during this difficult time.

Visitation will be from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Saturday at the church.
