Martha “Sue” Stinson Johnson Snead (December 3, 1943 - July 31, 2021)


Martha “Sue” Stinson Johnson Snead went to be with Our Lord and Savior on July 31st, 2021 after having struggled with recent health issues. She was surrounded by her family and longtime friend Teressa Williams. Sue was born in Durham, NC on December 3, 1943 to Leroy and Elsie Stinson. Her surviving family includes her husband Douglas H. Snead, her children Cindy Wyrick (Steve), Scot Johnson (Aimee), and Kimberly Akeefe (Khalil). Sue was a devoted Nana to her six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren: Nathan Akeefe (Lindsey) and their children Natalyn, Nolan, and Nixon; Meghan Wyrick (Heather); Leah Blankinship (Kenny) and their children Alden and Kannon); Ashley Smith (Matt); Hannah Akeefe (Richard) and their daughter Raelyn; and Katelyn Rubright (Ryan) and their daughter Teagan. She is also survived by her siblings Betty Tharrington and Buddy Stinson.  Sue dedicated her life to helping her family and friends and she was loved dearly by all who knew her. She had an unmatched work ethic and was employed at local diners B-Bop and Frosty’s where she made countless friends.  She believed in finding goodness in everyone and showing kindness to all those she met. She had a pure heart of gold.  We take comfort in knowing that our wife, mother, and Nana has joined many loved ones in heaven including her dearest friends Pat McLamb, Carol Jones, Barbara Crowder, and several others she recently lost.   A family conducted memorial service will be held at Lebanon Baptist Church on Tuesday August 3,  at 11 am. Light refreshments will be served afterwards with an opportunity for friends to greet the family. Please practice COVID-19 safety protocol including masks.
