Janie Sue Pruett Spangler, 88, of Shelby, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at her home with the love of her life by her side.

Born in Cleveland County, NC on Christmas Day, December 25, 1931, she was the daughter of the late Decater Carelia Pruett and Essie Oveida Dedmon Pruett.

Sue embraced her Christmas birthday all her life as a special gift. She was truly the example of love to everyone, especially her husband whom she affectionally referred to as her hero. Sue and Bill were the perfect love story. She was head bookkeeper for First Citizens Bank in Shelby, co-owner of S & B Concrete and created Sue's Cacti and Sue's Lily Gardens, always maintaining the role of loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Sue was an active member of Ross Grove Baptist Church her entire life.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Tommy Spangler; son-in-law, Charlie Rogers; grandson, Matthew Spangler and sister and brother-in-law, Helen and Gene Spangler.

Survivors include her husband of 70 years, William (Bill) Spangler; son, Mark Spangler (Sandy); daughters, Barbara Rogers and Susan Evans (WeeDee); grandchildren, Jeff Spangler (Tracy), Christine Spangler (Fred), Becky James (Vaughn), Vikki Spangler, Rachel Spangler, Chuck Rogers, Ernie Rogers and Sasha Osada (Matt) and eight great grandchildren, Alyssa and Savannah Rogers, Ella Jane and Grant Osada, William and Vivian James, and Kazia and Czenzi Spangler.

A Graveside Service will be held on Friday, August 14, 2020 at 10:00 am at Ross Grove Baptist Church Cemetery with the Rev. Marcus McGill and Rev. Josh Hunt officiating.

As I reflect on my life that I was so fortunate to share with my special Grandmother, I can't help but keep coming back to the same word: Love. Because that's all she showed to each and every individual she met, even if only for a few minutes. There are special qualities that sometimes shine brightly in people you come across in your career, friends and family alike. This was evident 100% of the time with Sue Spangler and to say she was one of the most kindest, caring, and compassionate people you would ever meet is, by far, an understatement.
She continually strived day in and day out to show the true works of Jesus' love and was, by all accounts, what God expects of us in all aspects of our lives. In my mind there is no coincidence that she shares the same birthday as Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.
I can only begin to image the special place that was prepared for my sweet 'Granny' in heaven, lush with beautiful flowers and exotic wonders as far as the mind and eyes could ever see. Yes, Sue Spangler is heralded as one of God's TRUE disciples, and set the bar for all to follow.
For sure, she will be dearly missed countless times over for her love, devotion, great food(!), admiration and positive attitude for many many years to come. If we all can only be a small percentage of what Sue Spangler instilled on us to others why we are still here on this earth we will still be far ahead of most. Thank you, Almighty Lord, for your graces you have shared with us through Sue and let us all appreciate what we were blessed with, and share that sentiment going forward in our daily lives.
Love you Granny. A bushel and a peck ❤
May you rest easy and enjoy God's wonders you have so graciously earned.

Barbara, Susan, Bill, Mark and extended family members: I adored Sue for her loving and thoughtful ways. She was a sweet friend. I am thinking about all of you. I hope to talk to you soon.

To the family of Sue Spangler- what a delightful person she was and was totally devoted herself to Bill, her children, her Lord and RGBC. She and Bill were such a striking couple and they set the bar high on marriage and family. I had the privilege of playing the organ at Tommy’s funeral and saw Sue as a grieving Mother and saw her strength and love even with a broken heart.

Our prayers are with you during your loss of such a lovely lady! I treasure her and Bill talking with me at Maw’s funeral in 2017 recalling wonderful times and stories they shared together. My fondest memories are of her there in the last few pews at Ross Grove worshiping together with our family when I was a child! Her smile and encouraging words will always be remembered.

Bill, Susan, Barbara, and Mark,
Really sorry to hear about your mom. I saw Bill at the Food Lion back when the pandemic first started (we were both there looking for bread and few other groceries) and he told me that she was becoming forgetful and he was a little worried about her. I am afraid I had not been out to visit her since Tommy passed, although I often thought of stopping when I would pass by. Time passes quickly sometimes. Sue was a wonderful Christian lady, always kind, and always trying to keep Tommy and I on track (and we needed her to do that). She would bring Tommy and I sandwiches out to S&B when I helped him one summer over there. It was just me and him working there at the time and we always had an appetite. She would fuss at me for being late in the morning, but I never believed she really meant it (although she probably did). I always marveled at her cactus garden and how she worked at it. I marveled at how she always took care of her mother and her grandchildren, and of course, you guys. I marveled at her continuous concern for other people, whether they were family, people she had known for years, those she just met, and even total strangers. And I also marveled at her strength when Tommy passed. That was hard. She was a wonderful person and I am better for having known her. Please know that you guys and your families will be in the thoughts and prayers of me and my family as you celebrate the life she lived and the legacy she leaves behind.
