Susie Oxendine had many passions outside of her love of spending time with family. She loved learning. She earned her associates degree from Tidewater Community College while raising three children. She explored the internet, read books, and watched educational programs to enrich her knowledge. She also enjoyed listening to music, singing karaoke with family, celebrating holidays, and living life to the fullest. She loved nature and spent a lot of time outside. Susie was often found sitting or napping on her deck swing listening to the birds, soaking in the sun, and enjoying the beauty of her flowers.

Susie was known for her gentle ways, generosity, and giving spirit. Her love of life and acts of kindness inspired all whose lives she touched.  A funeral service will be held on Thursday, December 23, 2021, 2:00 p.m. at Revels Funeral Home Pembroke, 407 Breece Street Pembroke, NC 28372.  The family will receive family and friends at Revels Funeral home prior to the service beginning at 12:30 p.m.  Online condolences may be registered at
