Sue Baldwin Lackie, North Little Rock, AR
Sue Baldwin Lackie of North Little Rock, AR, passed into eternal life on October 19, 2018, at the age of 91. Sue was born on January 14, 1927 in Carlisle, Arkansas, to Zollie B. "Doc" and Alla Mae Glover Baldwin. In 1945, she met and married the love of her life, Raymond J. Lackie, Sr. Their love and devotion to each other was the beautiful foundation of their 54 years of marriage.
Moving to North Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1954, Sue cherished her role as a wife and mother. She served her community as a volunteer at Baptist and Memorial Hospitals, the NLR Community Center, numerous PTA leadership positions, Cub Scout Den Mother, March of Dimes neighborhood chairman and as President of the Home Economics Club. She was a steadfast member of Gardner Memorial United Methodist Church and the Crusaders Sunday school class. With a spirit of generosity, Sue never hesitated to share her time, talent and treasure. She enjoyed teaching the Kindergarten Class, serving on the Council of Ministries, and as a soprano soloist in the Chancel Choir, her beautiful voice and love of music was enjoyed by many. For her years of service to the United Methodist Women's organization, she was honored as a recipient of their "Lifetime Service" award. Sue loved serving others and was active in Gardner's community outreach programs, the Clothes Closet, the Food Pantry and with her husband, was on the founding committee of Gardner's Annual Fish Fry, which goes on to the day. It was said by many, "If the doors were open at Gardner, Sue was there!"
Sue was very proud of her three "boys" and their families. She loved by always finding the time to "be there" and thus, with a lady's grace full of enthusiasm, great patience and enjoyment, attended countless music and theatrical performances, Scouting programs and athletic events all around the country.
Most important, during those difficult and painful times that life brings, when you need someone to be by your side, "Mama Sue" was there. Through the years, many folks lovingly called her "Mama Sue," as they were touched by her tender care or as an expression of her love and appreciation had received one of her fabulous coconut crème pies, chocolate cakes or a special batch of cookies.
Sue was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond J. Lackie, Sr. She is survived by her three sons - Jackie Lackie (Vicki) of Little Rock, AR, Jimmy Lackie (Margie) and Joe Lackie of Memphis, TN; four grandchildren - Josh Lackie (Shea), Jana Lackie Tayloe (Trip), and Taylor Lackie (Catherine) all of Memphis, TN and Chloe Lackie Zingaro (Joe) of Dallas, TX; and seven great-grandchildren – Kaki Lackie, Eva Lackie, Kreider Tayloe, Hampton Tayloe, Lele Tayloe, Page Lackie and Luke Zingaro.
The Lackie family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to those that provided such tender care of Mama Sue as her health declined, Dr. Debra Coplan of Hope Primary Care and the attendant's from Stellar Home Care, especially Claire Evans.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Tuesday, October 23 at Gardner Memorial United Methodist Church, 1723 Schaer Street, North Little Rock, AR. Visitation will follow immediately after the service in the Fellowship Hall. Interment will be in the Carlisle Cemetery, Carlisle, AR at 2 p.m.
