SANFORD — Susan Church Stewart, 65, of Sanford, NC, died at her home Saturday, April 26th.

Susan was born on March 15, 1949 to Vernon S. and Rachel N. Church of Wilkesboro, NC. Susan cherished her hometown of Wilkesboro. She also loved her adopted town of Sanford and her friends and family in both towns very much. She graduated from Wilkes Central, and went on to earn degrees from Brevard College and Greensboro College. She worked for many years in the Social Services Department of both Lee and Chatham Counties, and she had a true heart for helping others. Susan was preceded in death by her parents, Vernon and Rachel; her husband, Skip Stewart; and her sister, Sylvia Minton.

Susan is survived by her sister, Sandra Church of Knoxville, Tennessee; brother, Sonny Church and his wife Piper of Wilkesboro, NC; nephew, Spencer Church of Clemmons, NC; and niece, Shannon Church of Lexington, Kentucky. In addition to family, Susan's survived by several loving and special friends who were extremely important to, and in, her life. These friends are: Dorothy McElwee, Doris Taylor, and Kel Normann and his family. Other important creatures in her life included her furry friends (cats) who held an extremely special place in her heart.

Susan was known for her kind heart, loving and generous nature, and her passionate love of animals. She will be extremely missed by all who loved her! One quote in particular comes to mind — “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die” — Thomas Campbell. With that thought in mind, Susan will be around for quite some time!

The family of Susan would like to thank the staff of Community Hospice for their kind and compassionate care during her last days on this earth.

Her ashes will be spread in a private family ceremony in locations that held a special place in Susan’s heart.
