Falls View, WV – On January 23, 2014, Susie Jane Pierson left her family in Falls View, WV and moved to heaven, into the open arms of sweet Jesus. Thank you Jesus for the promise!

The beautiful lady left behind her husband of 56 years, Doug Pierson; daughters, Stephanie Young and Alexis Pierson; sons, John, Mark (deceased) and Dan Pierson.

Susie came from the loving family of her father, Carl and mother, Helen Childers. Her sisters are Sonjie Brown, Sandy Sparks, Sharon Young, Becky Hayes, Snow Doss and Sharlene Glenn; and her deceased brothers are Dallas and Jim Childers.

There are 9 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.

She was a member and piano player at the wonderful Huddleston Community Church. Susie loved each and every one of her neighbors in the special town of Falls View. When Susie’s children left home, she went to work at Mount Olive Correctional Complex and spoke often of her friends, co-workers and experiences while at MOCC.

Thank you Jesus, for the Summersville Hospice Workers: Pat Elswick and Marilyn Mullins. These fine ladies took care of Susie like she was one of their own family. Susie’s daughter was at her bedside every day for 5 months, giving her loving care, thank you, Steph.

Thank you Sue, for the love, care and favors you gave to us all. From all of your family and friends, see you in Heaven, Sweetheart.

Services were held at 1 PM, Monday, January 27, 2014 at Pennington Funeral Home, Gauley Bridge with the Reverends Ralph Davis, Tiger Hicks and David Manly officiating. Burial followed at Kanawha Valley Memorial Gardens, Glasgow.
