December 1, 1947 – May 13, 2022
Virginia Sue Case passed away peacefully at her home in Lake Caroline early the morning of May 13, 2022. Sue and her brother, Othel Anding, grew up with their parents, Denver & Esiz Lee Anding, in Brookhaven, MS. While attending Brookhaven High School, Sue met the love of her life, Clint Case. He was a country boy and the son of dairy farmer from Lloyd Star or more specifically, Caseyville. Clint and Sue Case were married on July 30, 1965, in Brookhaven, MS, and began their life together in Natchez, MS. They soon welcomed their first son, Andy, and almost exactly six years later Shaw completed the family. Clint and Sue moved from Natchez, MS, to Cleveland, MS, during the first few years of marriage before settling down to raise their family in Clinton, MS. Clinton (Wildwood Baptist Church) was “home” where they lived until moving to Lake Caroline in Madison County in 1995. Once in Madison, they moved their membership to First Baptist Church of Madison. Sue worked at Allstate Insurance Company for nearly forty years. Sue started as a clerical employee. She elevated to a Senior Claims Adjuster and eventually became the Claims Adjusting Trainer for the Allstate Regional office in Jackson, MS. Sue retired from Allstate in 2005. She loved her work and all the people she was blessed to work with while at Allstate. Clint and Sue’s children, Andy (Sharon) and Shaw (Roxanne) also reside in Madison, MS. Sue continued to be blessed (plagued) with all boys as their family grew. Taylor and Tanner (Andy) and Harrison and Peyton (Shaw), were more affectionately known as “Mimi’s four grands”. Over the last few years, Mimi and Bop were blessed with two great grandchildren, Gardner and Mills (Taylor and Liz). God finally gave Mimi the little girl she thought she’d never have. Sue found her real purpose in life being a grandmother and friend to the four grands. For twenty-eight years, she’s loved, scolded, hugged, chastised, laughed with, taught and yelled at her grandboys. She seemingly loved her four grands far more than she loved her sons and she gladly made it known. The last two years of her life, she found new joy and purpose in her great grand babies. Amazon has never shipped as many infant and toddler clothes to one doorstep (sometimes due to ordering the same items multiple times by mistake). Sue, Suzi Q, Mom, Aunt Sue, Camp Director and most importantly, Mimi, were many of the pet names used by friends and family for Sue. She was so much to so many people, and so many friends became a part of the family. Sue didn’t simply have acquaintances, but she made lifelong bonds with her strong and vibrant personality. Always one with a quick wit and sharp tongue, Sue let you know what she thought. Sue was also quick with an “I love you,” and never hesitated to figure out what she could do to help others (especially if it involved food). Sue loved and lived life to the fullest and with no trepidation. “The Girls, Pack, Posse” were her sisters at First Baptist Church of Madison, from Lake Caroline and the surrounding Madison/Clinton area. These friends and their spouses made post retirement worth the wait for Sue and Clint. They traveled to exciting places around the world making unforgettable memories. Despite her world travels, Sue was most happy and made some of her best memories on her patio with family and friends overlooking HER lake and God’s beautiful sunsets. As she prepared to exit this home and enter her forever home, Sue repeatedly made sure that her sons would care for loving husband, Clint. Not once did she express concern for herself. As has been her nature throughout, her worry was for Clint. Not until Andy and Shaw repeatedly convinced her that Clint would be well loved and looked after, did she decide to finally rest her heart and go to help prepare a place for all of us. We have no doubt that heaven has a new angel sharing her big, loving personality for all to enjoy, and we are now assured that there is, in fact, cornbread in heaven. Sue was preceded in death by her parents, Denver and Esiz Lee Anding. She is survived by her husband, Clint; sons, Andy (Sharon) Case and Shaw (Roxanne) Case; grandsons, Taylor (Elizabeth), Tanner, Harrison and Peyton Case; great grandchildren, Gardner and Mills Case, and brother, Othel (Camille) Anding. Visitation will take place at First Baptist Church of Madison on Thursday, May 19, 2022 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm with a memorial service immediately following. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Sunnybrook Children’s Home, Ridgeland, MS, or First Baptist Church of Madison, MS.See more See Less
