Addie Bryan

Addie (Sue) Bryan, age 78, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday March 10, 2020.  She was born on Feb. 21, 1942 in Knox County to Cotton and Marie Smith. She lived her entire life in Munday, graduating from Munday High School, and meeting her forever love William (Spike) Bryan. They were married Nov. 26, 1960 and enjoyed 59 wonderful years together.

Sue was a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was patient, kind and showed selfless love. It was truly the simple things in life that brought her the greatest pleasures. Her family knows her most for her love of cooking desserts, playing board games, being in the garden, singing church hymns and silly songs.

She had a great love for her church, which was evident in her many years of teaching Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. She was also well known for babysitting and she loved the kids as her own. They became part of her family and she remained in contact with many of them through the years.

Sue was preceded in death by her parents Cotton and Marie and brother Howard.

She is survived by her husband Spike Bryan of Munday; two daughters Shanna Pujol and husband Louis of Cross Roads and Sharla Riggs and husband Phil of Huntsville; grandchildren Bryan Welch of Denton, Randi Barndt and husband John of Wylie, Blake Welch and wife Kati of Wichita Falls, and Matthew Riggs and wife Sarah of Conroe. The best medicine in her final years, were her three great-grandchildren Riley Riggs, Adelaide Welch and Ian Barndt. She is also survived by sisters Norma Owens Thomas and Lynda Fields, both of Lubbock, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins who also loved her very much.

Services were held Saturday, March 14, 2020 at First Baptist Church in Munday.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Kitchen Committee at First Baptist Church in Munday.
