1949-2020Carr, Sue obit and folder

Heaven became a more lively place on Wednesday, June, 24, 2020, as Donnie Sue Moneyhun Carr, 71, loving Wife, Mom and Mimi, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Sue was born January 28, 1949, in Coleman, TX, to Bobby and Alta (Wright) Moneyhun. She grew up in Odessa, TX, where she met the love of her life, Don Carr, at the young age of 13. Don and Sue were married August 17, 1968 and together raised two daughters, Missy and Renee. She spent 30 years in the banking industry, blessed to work with wonderful people in numerous banks, as Don’s career moved them several times to places all over Texas, ultimately landing them in Edmond, OK, where they’ve made their home since 1995.

Sue is predeceased by her parents, Bobby and Alta Moneyhun, her sister, Bobbie Ann Wilson and her father-in-law, Cecil Carr.

Sue is survived by Don, her husband of 51 years, her daughter, Melissa (Missy) McGregor and son-in-law, Chris, her daughter Renee Williams, her grandchildren, Mackenzi Graham, Madison Graham and Truitt Williams, her mother-in-law, Dane Carr, all of Edmond, OK, her brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Carl and Margaret Herber of Denton, TX and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Don and Sue were always actively involved in the lives of their girls and have been just as involved with their grandchildren, who are blessed beyond measure to have the opportunity to grow up near their grandparents. Mimi and Papa rarely missed a soccer game, a football game, a volleyball game, a church production, a school play or anything else their grandkids happened to be involved with. If they were absent from an event, it was typically because they were travelling. Sue loved to travel, especially cruising, and after she retired in 2008, she and Don travelled as much as they could, enjoying numerous adventures to many far-away lands. She loved her church Community Group, playing cards with friends, going to theater productions, and striking up conversations with anyone and everyone around her. Most of all, she loved Jesus and her family. She loved to spoil her girls, but she loved to spoil her grandkids even more, the 3 of whom got to do pretty much anything and everything they wanted to, simply because, as they would say, “My Mimi said I could.”

Sue was the best Mom and Mimi any kid could ever hope for. She was kind, caring, incredibly generous, an amazing example of what unconditional love is and the Godly wife and mom her girls aspire to be. To know her was to love her. She’s always been the bright light in the room and one couldn’t be in her presence and not at least smile.

Join us as we celebrate Sue’s life Monday, June 29, 2020, at 10:00 am at Henderson Hills Baptist Church, Edmond, OK. Please wear fun, bright colors, which were her favorites, as a way to represent her vibrant, spunky, fun-loving spirit.

    I cannot begin to put into words the sadness when I heard the news of Sue’s passing. She will not allow us to be sad for she is in the arms of the Angels. She loved life, church, community and most of all her family. I cannot think of her and not smile. Her laughter is contagious. She had the greatest smile and the greatest laughter. Sue was a joy!

    Though your heart must hold deep sadness right now, may it also hold the blessings of the love that will always be a part of you. Praying that God will comfort your heart, uplift your spirit, and carry you through this time of sadness to a place of peace.

    Thank you so much for allowing me into your family. Through the years, we have had so much fun! To my very best friend, I will love and miss you dearly.

    My parents Dixie and Bob and I have been blessed to have known Sweet Sue since we moved in across the street. She was pure joy and a great sense of humor! Sue always made you feel special and that everything would be fine. We are going to miss her sweetness across the street! Jesus is so good to us for giving her to us! Sue is just more evidence of God’s Love for us!

  10. Don and family,

    I’m so sorry to learn of the passing of your beloved wife and mother. Fred’s death is recent enough that I know the pain but also the joy of knowing she is with her Savior as Fred is with his. Please know that I’ll be keeping you all in my prayers for peace and comfort.
