Susan wholly and happily devoted her life to her family. Caring for and celebrating her children and grandchildren was her greatest joy. The epitome of grace, her sincere warmth, kindness, and ability to make people feel welcome touched many lives. Her remarkable talent for creating and entertaining was rare and wonderful.

She is preceded in death by her mother, father and brother, Randall Steve Smith.

She will forever remain in the hearts of her husband, Glenn; son, Randall Scott Carr (Heather); daughters, Kelly Grier Carr Twiddy (Ross) and Sarah Glenn Carr; her 6 treasured grandchildren, Hope, Miller, Hattie Belle, Waylyn, Julep and Steele; and sister, Margaret Walters.

We are very saddened to hear this news. Every time I came into her presence she always had a smile and a kind word. It was obvious that she loved her family and that she was very supportive of Glenn and her children. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Tommy and Karen Austin

Glenn & Family, I was so sorry to learn of Susan,s passing. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers. It is so hard to loose a loved one. As you mourn her loss and celebrate her life, know that others are praying for you during this difficult time. I remember all the children, as I frequently gave them rides to the Academy when I worked at the ASCS Office when they were small. She will be greatly missed.

My heart breaks for your family in this time of loss. I am so sorry. Thomas and I are thinking of you all and hope you share peace is this togetherness. While it has been years since I've seen your mother, it seems like yesterday I remember going in the kitchen like stepping back in time to a world that was simple, slower and so southernly hospitable. I remember her closet vividly and the blue leather couch that I would "claim" for sleepovers. I can hear her voice (the very Colosse accent, "Kelly Grier"), see her smile, and almost smell the undoubtably wonderful meal she was preparing for us. She was a treasure for sure and I know will be greatly missed.

Thomas and Beth Darden

What a wonderful and beautiful soul. She was so very kind and thoughtful. Mama thought the world of you two. She was especially kind to mama
