Sue "Suzy" Scheuring

July 31, 1941 — March 6, 2024

Jacksonville

Sue “Suzy” Scheuring, 82, of Valdosta, Georgia, passed away in her home on March 6, 2024, surrounded by her adoring husband, her children, grandchildren, and a family companion. 

Suzy was raised in Twin Lakes, Georgia, where she spent most of her childhood in an idyllic setting on the lakes. She grew up swimming and enjoying the outdoors, helping at and attending the family church, Twin Lakes Presbyterian, which was merely a few steps away.  And of course, getting into mischief with her lifelong best friend and neighbor, Beverly.

Suzy graduated from Lake Park school with a class of 12, where she played basketball among other activities.  She spent years as a dental hygienist after high school before moving away. 

The next season of Suzy’s life was spent primarily in Jacksonville, Florida raising her two children, whom she loved with all her heart: Ray and Leigh (Susannah). 

She worked several jobs throughout those years as a single mama as she was resolved to try and make a good life for herself and her children.  Her favorite job, after relocating to Jacksonville, Florida was working at the First Baptist Church of Jacksonville.  A special memory was when she and her children were all baptized at the church together.  Suzy loved her church and felt blessed to sit under the teaching of Dr. Homer Lindsay, Jr. 

Suzy would tell you that she was rescued when Bob (Robert) Scheuring came into her life. They spent 25+ years together, enjoying a Hallmark Movie-style marriage. She and Bob enjoyed serving the Lord side-by-side, traveling together, including a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Israel, watching their favorite shows together in their side-by-side recliners, and spending time with friends.  She especially loved any time she got to spend with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Suzy gained two wonderful sons when she married Bob: Ken and Mark. Alongside her bonus daughter, Kim, who is married to her son Ray, she also gained a third daughter in Tammy, Mark’s wife. 

Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were some of her greatest joys. She could be constantly found looking for ways to show them how much she loved them. She was one of their biggest cheerleaders and greatest fans. Getting to celebrate a birthday with them or attend a ballet, theater, or another event her grandchildren were in was one of the highlights of her later years. Gathering for Passover or Easter, the 4th of July, Christmas, any holiday spent with her family, any vacation, or special moments with her family were a true treasure to her.

Suzy also had a very special bond with her brother, Farney. Those two could be found talking on the phone daily in Suzy’s final years. It was obvious that Farney was the quintessential big brother to her, and she adored him. 

While Suzy had her share of heartache here on this earth, she lived a wonderful, adventurous, and full life. She was an overcomer to say the least.  She was a beautiful, kind, loving daughter of our King. She was caring, thoughtful, and giving. She was funny and she was silly. She was a loyal and devoted friend.   If you needed her, Suzy was there. And if she loved you, you knew it. She was her family’s biggest advocate and a prayer warrior. She was an adoring wife, and an unconditionally loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. 

But above all those things she was a woman who loved her God, who praised Him and served Him. She would be the first to tell you that her life was changed forever when she met Jesus. And she would want you to know that He was the One who set her free.  He was the very Hope of her life. 

We know that she saw Jesus and the angels shortly before her death because she told us so. And we know that while we mourn here, we will see her again one day there with Him.

“.. we do not grieve as those who have no Hope…”

Suzy, Momma, and MiMi, we all love and adore you and we will miss you greatly. 

Until we see you again.  

“Well done good and faithful servant.”

Suzy was preceded in death by her mamma, “Gracie” (Grace Bullock-Harrison), whom she loved with all her heart, as well as her father, and her siblings. 

Suzy leaves behind her beloved husband, Robert, and her children Raymond (Kimberly), Susannah Leigh, Mark (Tammy), and Ken.   Her grandchildren, Kaitlyn (Chas), Levi, Isabella, Ava, Elizabeth, Micah, Ford, Taylor, Annah, and Sydney.   Her great-grandchildren, Charley, Wyatt, Luca, and baby Riggs on the way (who MiMi knew was coming, and possibly on her birthday she hoped).  Her brother, Farney (Cathy), and their children, Tracy (Kyle), Suzanne (John), Chad (Christina), and Whit.  A loving family full of nieces, nephews, and cousins.  Her buddies David, and his wife Evelyn. And last, but certainly not least, her life-long (for almost 80 years!) best friend, Beverly.
