Sue Bennett Fulcher

Mrs. Sue Bennett Fulcher, 95, passed away on Sunday, January 31, 2021, at the Beehive Home in Louisville. Sue was born May 2, 1925, in Louisville, to Ethel Clark Bennett and Samuel Leonard Bennett. She was a graduate of Louisville High School, East Central Junior College, and attended Mississippi State University. She worked for the Mississippi Department of Human Services (old Welfare Department) for many years, and as a bookkeeper for Mississippi Valley Gas until her retirement.
 
She was a lifelong member of West Union Presbyterian Church, where she played the piano and organ. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, and was a member and officer of the Louisville Pilot Club. She was a devoted and caring mother and grandmother and her sweet spirit made her beloved by children, animals, friends, and family. She loved the Lord with all her heart, soul, and might.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Leon “Pete” Fulcher, her parents; two sisters, Virginia Ward and Joyce Hull; and three brothers, Joe Bennett, Gilbert Bennett, and Dale Bennett.

She is survived by a precious son, Wade Bennett “Benny” Fulcher of Louisville; a beloved daughter, Ellen Ishee O’Lonney of Roland, AR; five grandchildren, Jacob (Erin) Ishee, Slay Ishee, Jamie Little, Stacie (Rusty) Waites, and Lyndsey Fulcher; seven great grandchildren, Kayleigh, Jackson, Jaicie, Ollie, Khloe, Lily, and Auden; and her cat, Beau, who still resides at the Beehive.

The family would like to thank Sue’s friends and caregivers at the Beehive for loving her and making her a home when she could not be at hers.

Due to the Covid pandemic, a memorial service honoring Sue’s life will be held at a later date.

Memorials may be made to West Union Presbyterian Church, c/o Linda Hudson, 19005 Hwy 15 N., Louisville, MS, 39339; and Belkot Village Relief, Nepal, c/o Regions Bank, Louisville.
