Mary Elizabeth "Sue" Scroggin Huddleston, 94, of Germantown, Tenn., (formerly of North Little Rock, Ark.) went to be with the Lord on Monday, Oct. 17, 2011.
She was born in Solgohachia, Ark., Oct. 11, 1917, to Carlena Vann and John Andrew Scroggin. She was the youngest of seven and preceded in death by her parents and her siblings.
Mary and Maurice Milton Huddleston were married on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, 1935. They resided in North Little Rock for most of their married life where they were active members of Gardner Memorial United Methodist Church and later First United Methodist Church in North Little Rock.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 65 years in 2001.
When she was younger, "Sue" had a beautiful voice. Two of her most requested songs were, "Sioux City Sue" and "Sweet Sue". As a result she received the nickname "Sue". To this day in Arkansas she is still Sue. It was only when she and Maurice moved to Memphis, Tenn., that she decided it was time to go by her "real" name, Mary.
Known by her many friends and family members to be a devoted wife and mother, Mary was also an avid bridge player and a wonderful cook.
Mary leaves behind her daughter, Judy Adkins and her husband, Lynn, of Germantown and her son, Dick Huddleston and JoAnn Fletcher, of Madisonville, La. She also leaves her granddaughter, Beth Skudder and her husband, David of Eads, Tenn.; grandsons, Brad Adkins and his wife, Carol, of Jackson, Tenn., and Matt Huddleston and his wife, Missy, of Abita Springs, La., and nine great-grandchildren, Will, Mary Margaret and Maddie Skudder, Conner, Jonathan, Catherine and Jacob Adkins; and Dillon and Emma Huddleston.
Visitation was held Wednesday, Oct. 19, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Germantown Plantation, 9293 Poplar Avenue, where Mary was a long-time resident.
Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 20, at Pinecrest Memorial Park in Alexander, Ark.
Memorials may be made to Baptist Trinity Hospice House, 1520 W. Poplar, Collierville, TN., The American Cancer Society, or the charity of your choice.
