Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Suzanne (Suzy) Childs-Johnson, 65

Suzanne (Suzy) Childs-Johnson, 65 of Little Rock, Arkansas went on Friday,  June 9, 2017 to join her mother Raydell Engles, sister Barbara (Barbie) Childs, and dearly depart loved ones Kenny Johnson, Billy Mosely, Perry Little, and Jed.

Suzy prided herself on being a fisher-woman. She was an honest, charitable, caring, and sympathetic person who often shared whatever she could to help people in need. Fiery at times she seemingly grew a foot if riled, but mostly she was a friend, advisor, and loving mother to her son Lane Johnson. We shall never see her like again.

In addition to her son, Suzy is survived by her sister and best friend, Sharon Patrick; sister Donna McAfee; brothers David and Skip Childs; nieces Jenny-Kay Chontos, Daron and Missy McAfee, Shelbi Walters, Holly Lamm, and Terri-Lynn Harbour; nephew Beau Ford; and great nephews and nieces she treasured. Special love and thanks to Tina Zdarko, Alvin Jackson, and Shelbi Walters.

A gathering and memorial service to celebrate Suzy’s life will be held at 1 P.M. on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at A Natural State Funeral Service in Jacksonville, AR.  Interment will follow at 2:30 P.M. at Pine Crest Cemetery located at 7401 AR-5, Alexander, AR 72002.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas, 72076. 501-982-3400

    Lane and family, sorry to hear of Suzy’s passing. We were neighbors and friends years ago, when out kids were young. She made glad I moved across the street from her. Thinking of you Lane with love,

    So sad to hear Suzanne passed away. She was a very special lady!
    My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family.

    Lane, Donna, Sharon & Missy… I’m speechless! I’ve often wondered about Suzy & just happened to look her up to find this obituary. We had some really good (and just a few not so good) but mostly hilarious times together for a couple of years as roommates. I also see Billy is gone as well as Perry (and good ol’ Jed) I’ll forever cherish our good memories and knowing you all. As we always joked, ‘that’s one for the book’ (which we never wrote) there should have been MANY pages! I hate to hear the final chapter. I have many questions, but I’m sure I’ll never get the answers. I’m so saddened and pray you all have peace and comfort! Lane, I hope you have found true love & possibly a family. You were EVERYTHING to your mom.
