Sue Vandiver

February 1, 1922 — July 3, 2018

Sue Anderson Vandiver, 96, of Murrayville, GA went home to see her Lord on July 3rd.  She was at home surrounded by family and friends. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, July 7, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. at Strickland Funeral Home Chapel in Clermont, Ga.  Rev. Tyler Flowers, Rev. Ron Smith, Rev. Ken Anderson, International Missionary Daughter, from India, Jayatradha, and Rev. John Frierson will officiate. Interment will be in the Wahoo Church Cemetery following the service. The family will receive friends Friday, July 6, 2018, from 4-8 p.m. at Strickland Funeral Home in Clermont, Ga.

Born Feb 1, 1922 to Hub and Artie Anderson, she has enjoyed a full life of loving her family, making new friends and serving Jesus.   Sue attended the Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School where she worked her way through college as a housekeeper and cook.  While there, according to Daddy Jay, she won "The Most Beautiful Girl in College" pageant.  Employed during WWII by Bell Aircraft, Sue was an inspector of the planes that secured our victory.  Because of her attention to details, she later worked 33 years and retired as a payroll manager with Sears & Roebuck in Atlanta.  

Growing up in a Christian family, Sue gave her life to Jesus while a member of Wahoo Baptist Church.  Through the years, she has served as a short-term missionary, Sunday School teacher, VBS director, church planter, soul-winner, WMS director for the GA conference of the Wesleyan Church, caregiver, led numerous Bible studies and was a regular attender of Union Point Campground and Indian Springs Holiness Campground.  Despite all of her church involvement, her favorite memory was that her children were involved in Campus Crusade for Christ and brought countless young people home and to the lake house where they could see the love of Christ in action.   She was a member of the Wesleyan Church.

Sue was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers, Hoyt, Marvin and Arvin Anderson, and her sister in law, Mary Anderson.  She is survived by her husband of 76 years, Jay Vandiver; daughter, Dianne V. Wallace and husband Rev. Bill of Cherryville, NC and son, Jack Vandiver and wife Robin of Wheaton, IL; sisters in law Edith Anderson and Charlene Anderson, both of Murrayville; Marion V.
