(Christians on Duty). Her joy was taking pictures of events and making scrapbooks for C.O.D. and sending cards for every occasion. Sue enjoyed cooking and swapping recipes, shopping for special gifts, and collecting dolls of all kinds.  She and her husband, Calvin, loved to travel especially during the fall when everything was so colorful.  In July of 2011 she moved from Macon to Douglasville, GA to be close to her son and his family.

Survivors include her son, Walter John Fitzpatrick and wife Donna of Newnan, GA; two grandsons, Justin Fitzpatrick and Kevin Fitzpatrick; a great grandson, Kamron Fitzpatrick; sister, Audrey Neville; nephew, Michael (Mary Ann) Neville,  and a number of other relatives and friends.

Walt, Donna, Justin & Kevin,
I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Mother and Grandmother who loved you all so dearly and I know that you love her and will miss her so. Hold on to those wonderful memories and know that she is in heaven with The Lord. She is with her dear Calvin and parents and no longer in pain. She was one of the best Christian women that I have ever known and the dearest friend (Sis) anyone could ever have. I am so thankful to have had her as my friend and for the influence she had in my life. You are and will
continue to be in my prayers. Our loss is heaven's gain. God bless you.
