On Thursday, September 27, 2018, the sweet loving spirit of our Mother, Bettie Sue McClarty (Momma Sue) went to join the Savior in heaven.

Sister McClarty was born October 28, 1931 to the late Zero and Corrine Cawthon. She attended J.B. Turner and was a graduate of T.R. Jackson High School. She accepted Christ at an early age, baptized in 1949 by the Rev. J. A. Harris. Sister McClarty was a dedicated member of St. John Divine Missionary Baptist Church where she served faithfully. She served as a deaconess, choir member, Sunday school member, and financial clerk. Because of the way she lived her life, it was evident she truly loved the Lord. She greeted everyone with a loving, affectionate, contagious smile and kind words.
