Obituary for Susan Austin Timberlake

Susan A. Timberlake
February 21, 1924 - July 23, 2017
La Grange-Susan Austin Timberlake, 93, transitioned to her Heavenly home on Sunday, July 23, 2017. Susan was born February 21, 1924 in Pitt County to the late James Thomas Timberlake and Fleeta Dare Taylor Timberlake. Susan was devoted to God and the well-being of her family. Her warm, pleasant smile lit up every room she entered. Susan always walked to the beat of a different drum. She did things her way and was always willing to step up and help the underdog. She received an undergraduate degree in education and a masters degree in counseling from East Carolina University. Passionate in her role as counselor, Susan was deeply committed to the success of her students. A lady of strong faith, Susan worshiped at both La Grange First Missionary Baptist Church and La Grange Christian Church. Visitors to her home were always greeted by a basket of Christian pamphlets near the front door.
A graveside service to celebrate and honor Susans life will be held Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 9 a.m. from Fairview Cemetery. A time of visitation and fellowship will follow at the Timberlake home.
Susan is survived by three children, Rev. Fr. Francis Andrew Perry, III, Thomas Timberlake Perry and wife, Debrah, and Fleeta Collins Griffith and husband, Walter; four grandchildren, Jessica and husband, Dwight, Forrest and wife, Ellie, Claire and Austin; three great-grandchildren, Ryan, Ben and Kayden; and two step-children, Gwen Collins and husband, Jerry, and Kenneth Collins and wife, Janice, and their families.
