Suzan Marie Stringer, 62 of Scurry, Texas passed away on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 at her home in Scurry.
Suzan, “Meemaw”, was born on March 18, 1954 in Dallas to Roy Davis and Dorothy Lee Stringer. Suzan grew up in Mesquite until she was 16 and then moved to Scurry, where she lived most of her years and met the love of her life, Thomas Joseph Jones. They married in December 1972 in Waxahachie and began their life together in Scurry where they raised their two sons, Eric Jones and Chad Jones. Suzan graduated high school from Scurry Rosser in 1972 and quickly entered the work force. Suzan began doing accounting work for Bosco Manufacturing. She spent most of her professional career working for Chilton Inc. and CSC Logic Incorporated working as a technical writer. She officially retired in 2007 after more than 20 years of service with CSC Logic Inc. Following her retirement, she enjoyed spending her time loving on her grandchildren, gardening, playing with the farm animals, and volunteering at Prospect Mountain in Scurry.
Those left to cherish Suzan’s memory are: her husband of 40+ years, Joe Jones of Scurry and three children; sons Eric Jones and wife Tabitha of Scurry, Texas, Chad Jones and wife Kelley of Scurry, Texas; daughter Angie Simmons and husband Tim of Houston, Texas; 10 grandchildren Jimmy, Cheyenne, Savannah, Dakota, Kindle, Levi, Shiloh, Noah, Logan and Parker ; 2 great grandchildren Cameron and Hunter; brothers, Mark and wife Debbie Stringer of Carrolton, Mike and wife Tina Stringer of Mesquite and Chuck Stringer of Dallas. She also leaves numerous extended family and friends who will miss her dearly.
Suzan was a gentle, kind, spirit filled woman with an adventurous soul and unconditional love for all. She loved exploring new places, working with her hands, tending to animals, playing soccer, spending time with friends and family, and of course “THE BEATLES”. Suzan was a long time member of Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Scurry. Her greatest passion later in life was her grandchildren. She loved every moment she could spend with family and friends. Unfortunately, her fight with cancer became too much for her body to endure and robbed her of her ability to do the things she loved. There is no doubt that her body and soul are healed now and she will forever be watching over us from above with our other family members who have passed before us.
