Tupelo-Sandra Sue Miller Heidel, 67, passed away peacefully at Sanctuary Hospice House on Sunday, April 23, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Tupelo, MS to James Turner and Eula Ray Miller and was a member of Harrisburg Baptist Church. She graduated from Tupelo High School and worked as a Commercial Insurance Agent for 48 years. She married her husband, Albert, on June 14, 1969 and devoted her life to her family and her greatest joy was spending time with them. Our precious Sue Sue was a devoted wife, daughter, mother, sister, grandmother, and aunt. She was kind and gentle and her sweet spirit shined through her twinkling blue eyes.

A private family burial will follow at Lee Memorial Park. Visitation will be from 5pm-7pm today (Tue.) and from Noon – service time on Wednesday.

Albert, I just saw this obituary posted on the Tupelo memory page. Sue worked in the office with my parents, Sue and Bill Tate, Sue was always so sweet to me when I visited and/or worked in the office when we were younger. Haven't seen her in years but so hate to learn of her death. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers!

There are no words really, but to know Sue was to love her. "Sweet" is an understatement and that goes for all of you. Albert, Kim & Tonya, and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. She was a lovely, classy lady. I will cherish our memories of ADMAX dinners together and especially our rival football games, which, there was only a few spent in Oxford with you all, but your hospitality was always the best. Sue-you will be greatly missed. Rest in peace with our Lord and Savior. Until we meet again...
