Mary ‘Sue’ Hite: April 30, 1935 – July 25, 2020

Born in Greenville, S.C., Sue moved her family to Oak Harbor, Wash., in 1968. Sue worked in the Brandon Cotton Mill in South Carolina. She retired from the Navy Exchange and, later, served school lunches for several years. She never lost her Southern accent.

Sue loved playing bingo and telling jokes. She developed many friendships with fellow bingo players as well as with the residents of her apartment building. Sue was always available to give her neighbors a ride to doctor appointments or to go grocery shopping. She loved Southern fried chicken, okra, black-eyed peas, and collard greens and yielded a mean wooden spoon.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Donald Hite. We know he was there to guide her home.

She leaves behind a family who loves her very much, including her sons, Terry Parker, Bill and Bobby Smith, Dennis Parker and daughters Wanda Hofkamp and Cathy Mason-Cliff.

She was a favorite of her 13 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. She will be missed but not forgotten.
