 Laura Sue (Suzie) Crabtree Nance, 76, left this world peacefully surrounded by her loved ones.

Survived by her husband, Dale, whom she married in 1993, and who lovingly referred to Suzie as “Memaw”-reminding her daily she was the best Memaw in the world. Suzie is also survived by her daughter, Mina Kouklan (Junoh Kim), who will forever miss her best friend.
