On April 16, 2017, Sue Taylor Bryan moved from her earthly home in North Little Rock, AR to her eternal home. She spent her final days here the way she loved to spend her life: surrounded by family and friends.
Sue was raised in Helena, Arkansas and is preceded in death by her father and mother, George and Louise Taylor, and by her brother, Tommy Taylor.
Family and faith were the foundation of Sue’s life. Her family was her treasure and God was her center. She was unwavering in her conviction that she was “God’s favorite,” and lived her life to bring glory to Him. Sue opened her heart, life, and home to those around her. From her family, to life-long friends, to her “Mama Sue Kids,” she loved them all fiercely.
Sue found joy in the small things: breakfast at Cracker Barrel with her grandkids, worshipping with her church family at Word Aflame Fellowship, and Sunday-afternoon lunches (preferably Mexican food!) with friends. She took pride in her work and felt blessed to be able to positively impact the lives of others while working with colleagues who became some of her closest friends.
Sue was stubborn, intensely loyal, loved to talk, and didn’t take herself too seriously. Known for her perpetual lateness, she can now formally be dubbed “The Late Sue Bryan.”
Left to celebrate Sue’s life are: her sons and daughters-in-law: Brian and Lisa, Scott and Carla, Larry and Stephanie; her grandchildren: Kyla, Jered, Chase (Kourtnee), Leyla, and George; one great-grandchild: Emersynn; Sue’s siblings: Tina (Richard) Wooten, George (Virginia) Taylor, Joann (Tommy) Holcomb and Dolores Sapp.
“Aunt Suzie’s” memory will be cherished by her nieces Spencer and Valerie (Nez), and her nephew Billy (Janet); her great-nieces and nephews Mallory (Andrew), Taylor, Kaylyne, Jordan, Lindsay, and Nico, as well the cutest great-great-niece and nephew around: Brooklyn and Wilson, also, her church family and many, many friends.
Sue’s funeral service will be at 1:00 pm on Friday, April 21, 2017 at Word Aflame Fellowship, 7800 interstate 30, Little Rock, Arkansas. Visitation will be from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the church. Committal will be a private family service.
