Sue (Oreta Faye) Sessions, 80 passed away July 1, 2024 in Jacksonville, Texas. Sue was born August 23, 1943 in Fort Worth, Texas to Tom and Atma Cook. Sue loved living in Ponta with her husband of 45 years, Lee Roy Sessions. Although Sue was a long-time Real Estate Closing Agent with Cherokee Title and other local title companies, her favorite occupation was owning and working at the Diamond S Produce Stand in Ponta with her husband Lee. They had customers travel far & wide to buy fresh peas, tomatoes, watermelons, onions, cantaloupe, canned goods, etc., but Sue & Lee’s favorite part was the fellowship. Sue and Lee loved hunting, fishing, playing dominos and cards with their close friends, James & Eva Jones. While Lee was not a big fan of personal travel, especially air travel, Sue loved it. She enjoyed traveling to Las Vegas & Louisiana Downs with their friends and was also able to take several trips with her parents, children and grandchildren, including trips to England, France and most recently Colorado. She was also an amazing cook, incredibly skilled at Southern Comfort food dishes and always leading the way at Thanksgiving & Christmas dinners.

Sue is survived by her brother Ben Cook, her two sons: Ben Terry, wife Tonja and children Amanda, Ryan & Shayne; Pete Terry, wife Judy and children Tara & Jonathan, granddaughter Meagan, grandson Terence and granddaughter Brianna (children of Carentha Martin) and granddaughters Julia & Jesse (daughters of Misty Gentles), and many great grandchildren. Sue is preceded in death by her parents Tom & Atma Cook, sister Jackie Peterson, husband Lee Roy Sessions, two daughters, Carentha Martin and Misty Gentles, and great grandson Grady Vann.

A Memorial Service will be held at First Baptist Church of Ponta, 7282 Hwy 110 North, Jacksonville, Tx 75766 on Saturday, July 6, 2024 at 11 am, with son Ben Terry officiating.
