1947 Susan 2022

Susan Meredith Lipscomb

January 26, 1947 — May 23, 2022

Greenville

Susan went peacefully and joyfully to her heavenly home with Jesus on May 23, 2022.  She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Nate; her children Juliet Halvorsen (Mark), Amy Barber (Jim), and Elizabeth Johnson (Kaj); her grandchildren Peter and Maggie Halvorsen, and James, Sam and Molly Barber; and by her brother Steven Sperber.

She was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, the much loved daughter of Howard and Meredith Sperber. She graduated from Webster Groves High School and DePauw University, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  She taught 2nd grade for 5 years before starting her full time career as a devoted home-maker, wife and mother.  She and Nate lived in St. Louis, Dallas, Omaha and Connecticut before moving to Greenville in 2005.

In 1977 Susie made a profession of faith in Jesus as her Savior and grew in grace and knowledge of Him through Bible study, Christian service, and fellowship with faithful others.  She was a gifted educator who touched many children’s lives with the love of Christ through her excellent teaching and captivating story telling.  She also gave herself generously in service to Christian ministries.

Susie was a joy to be with – charming, gentle, lighthearted, unselfish and always sincerely interested in whoever she was with.  She was a gracious hostess whose thoughtful hospitality enriched the lives of many. She was a patriot who loved her country and its proud traditions.

In addition to her devotion to her husband, daughters and dear friends, Susie had unbridled love and affection for her 5 grandchildren.  She cherished every moment she was able to spend with them and nothing could exhaust her capacity to give of her time, talents and attention where they were concerned.  She was immensely thankful for and proud of each one.

Susie was a beautiful person whose heart and life reflected Christ in marvelous ways.  She will be sorely missed but is now with Jesus, waiting with open arms and her beautiful smile to embrace us again.
