October 7, 1946 – November 3, 2013
Sue Branton of Arkadelphia, Arkansas, died quietly and peacefully on November 3, 2013, in Hot Springs, Arkansas. She was 67 years old. She was born Dorothy Sue Condict on October 7, 1946, in Bernie, Missouri, the eldest child of Earl Dee Condict and Medra Olie Raney. Although Sue spent the first half of her life primarily in Missouri and Texas, she moved to Clark County, Arkansas, in 1983, where she resided off and on until her death.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her younger brothers Billy Condict and John Brawley, and her granddaughter, Amanda Ann Condict.
Sue was the proud mother of five daughters: Tonia Condict of Hot Springs, Jennifer Curry of Prescott, Caroline Curry Lewis of Little Rock, Buforina Sue Branton Almond and Martha Branton Moseley, both of Arkadelphia. She found joy in the fact that each of them, in turn, became a mother, and leaves surviving grandchildren ranging in age from 30 years to 4 years: Nicholas Pitchford, Amy Pitchford, Cody Smith, William Curry, Marcus Branton, Shaun Moseley, Jessika Moseley, Isaiah Massey, Jacob Almond, and Catherine Lewis. Although she had only one great-grandchild at her death, Gabriel Aidan Pitchford, she was thrilled to learn shortly before her death that another was expected. She considered her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, born and unborn, to be her greatest accomplishment. She was grateful, in her final days, that she was able to spend time with them.
Other loved ones surviving Sue include one sister, Martha Daniels, brothers Allen, Robert, and Floyd Brawley, sister-in-law Dorcas Condict, her uncle Clifford Condict, and a multitude of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
According to her wishes, following her cremation, Sue will be laid to rest near her beloved brother Billy, in Clyde, Texas, with her family in attendance.
In lieu of flowers, the family of Sue asks that she, and those she left behind, be remembered in prayer.
