Sue Ann Maloof (Thomason)
Sue Thomason Maloof, age 83, peacefully died in her sleep February 7, 2020. She was born and raised in 1936 in Copperhill, Tennessee to Ralph and Bonnie Thomason. Growing up, she spent her teenage years in Shelbyville, Tennessee. She has been married to Louis N. "Vic" Maloof for 63 years. Sue attended the University of Tennessee Chattanooga and completed her Psychology degree at Brenau College in Gainesville, Georgia. Sue spent time working as an intern at the Redstone Arsenal doing math computation. Sue also worked as a mental health clinician in Atlanta, Georgia.
Sue was always a woman of faith and the church was an important part of her life. She has been a member of St. John's Melkite Catholic Church since the 1960's. Sue also helped found Prince of Peace Catholic church in Buford, Georgia in 1975.
All of us will remember Sue's ability to host a gathering. She would decorate and cook like no other. Sue Loved People and showed her generosity and kindness in many ways. Whether it was spending time at the homeless shelter, having coffee at the drugstore with friends, consoling someone in the hospital or spending time with family and friends, she was always finding ways to give to others. Her life was spent spreading generosity and hospitality to everyone around her. We are reminded of what was in her heart for others by this bible verse Ephesians 4:32 - "And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ."
She was a loving mother, wife and gourmet cook. You could always count on having a wonderful meal when you spent time at her house. In fact, if she found out you liked something she made you were probably going to see that dish again for years to come.
Dogs were always a big part of Sue's life. She and Vic raised and showed Kerry Blue Terriers for over 20 years. SSue Thomason Maloof, age 83, peacefully died in her sleep February 7, 2020.
