DUNN — Suzanne Marie (Sue) Coppock Mason, 80, passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday. Sept. 4, 2021. Sue was born on Jan. 9, 1941, in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was the daughter of David William Coppock Sr. and Betty Isabella Pitchforth. Sue had two siblings: David William (Bill) Coppock Jr. and Betsy Layne (Coppock) Sanger.
Sue grew up in Colorado and often spent her summers on her grandfather’s sheep and cattle ranch. She graduated from South High School in Denver, Colorado, and Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins with a double major in English and French. While attending CSU, Sue was a proud member of the Tri Delta Sorority and a Little Sister of Minerva to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, which is where she met the love of her life, Paul David Mason. After graduation, she belonged to the American Association of University Women.
Dave and Sue had three children and were married almost 59 beautiful years. Sue enjoyed a variety of jobs, retiring from Campbell University after 25 years of employment in the Service Enterprises Division where she served as the lead word processor. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church of Dunn. Sue was very active in the community and enjoyed socializing with her friends in various bridge clubs and a couples supper club for many years. Unfortunately Sue developed Parkinson’s disease in the latter stages of her life. Though it plagued her for the last several years and left her bedbound, she never lost her kind spirit and the will to live life to the fullest.
Sue was preceded in death by her father, David; her mother, Betty; and her brother, Bill. She is survived by her loving husband, Dave; her adoring sister and brother-in-law, Betsy and Greg (Sanger); her wonderful three children Jim, Dana, and Jonna; her devoted son-in-law, Scott (Hall); and three beloved grandsons, Wesley and Colby (Mason) and Carson (Hall).
A service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021, at First Presbyterian Church, 901 N. Park Ave., Dunn, NC 28334.
The family will receive friends following the service outside (weather permitting) or in the parlor of the church.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the First Presbyterian Church of Dunn.
