Abingdon, VA – Susie Barton Fife, age 83, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 in Russell County, Virginia. Susie was one of four children of the late Corbon Lee Barton and Katherine (Shoemaker) Barton.

She was preceded in death by her husband of sixty years, Clyde Harry Fife; her parents; brothers: Jerry and Frank Barton; sister: Bonnie Barton Sandridge; sisters-in-law: Helen Combs, Bertha Fife and Charlotte Barton; brothers-in-law: Floyd Combs, Herman Fife, Claude Fife, James Fife and Ed Sandridge; niece: Dana Barton; nephews: Bobby and Tommy Fife.

In addition, she is survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, great-nieces, great-nephews, great grand-dogs and so, so many loving friends.

Susie loved babies and animals, friends, family and her Lord Jesus. She was a member of Lebanon Baptist Church where she loved to sing and serve with her church family. She also loved her community and the beautiful mountains that she always called home, no matter how far away she was at the time.
