Sue Beasley • February 17, 2020
Sue Joyce Beasley, 83, passed away Monday, February 17, 2020 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was born April 17,1936 in Union, Mississippi to Lola and Thomas Harris.
After living in multiple places with her husband and daughters, Sue’s family moved to Pensacola in 1964 where she resided until her death, with the exception of a short time in New Orleans. Sue worked in banking until she started a career with the Escambia County School District as a Teacher Aid. She served in that capacity at several schools before becoming School Secretary at Hallmark Elementary. She retired in July, 1998 as Administrative Secretary to the Director of Secondary Education. After retirement she periodically worked in a temporary capacity at the University of West Florida.
Sue was a faithful member of Brownsville Baptist Church where she served until she was no longer able. She enjoyed singing in the choir and participating in all activities, being glad to help when asked. She loved her Lord and loved people, and truly had a caring and compassionate heart. She loved her family so much and was so proud of each and every one. She had 3 daughters and sons-in-law, 6 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren plus 2 on the way. Her greatest desire was for her family to come to know the Lord Jesus as Savior.
Sue was preceded in death by her parents, Lola and Thomas Harris; brother, Duane Harris; and former husband Ray Beasley. She is survived by her sisters, Sandra (Elton) Wall, and Judy (Richard) Irons; daughters Dianne (Scott) Stillman, Denise (Michael) Moran, and Vicki (Keith) Swilley; grandchildren Candice (Michael) Cutler, Derek (Bree) Stillman, Whitney (Joe) Harig, Kylie (Ryan) Hultgren, Jenna (David) Lyle, and Logan (Taylor) Swilley; great grandchildren Emmaline, Leland and Eliza Cutler, Fisher, Gentry and Nora Stillman, Conner Harig, Finn and Brooks Hultgren, Sydney, Dallas and Jackson Lyle, and Lane Swilley; and many extended family members.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to those who were so helpful in her care. To Marge Peacock, who helped provide care in the home, and to Summer Visa Assisted Living Memory Care, where she was affectionately known as Sue Sue. We are forever grateful.
