Obituary Condolences

COWART Mrs. Sue Carole Biddy Cowart, 73, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, April 8, 2013, after a brief illness. She was born on April 5, 1940 in Macon, Georgia, and grew up in Tifton, Georgia. She graduated from Georgia Southern University, with a degree in education, and did many things in her life. She taught high school English in Georgia and Florida, but the happiest career path was probably the years she owned The Heritage Gallery, a gift shop in Chattahoochee, Florida. She retired from the Florida Department of Education and was enjoying her golden years in Jacksonville surrounded by friends and family. She was known for her big brown eyes and dazzling smile, and had such a powerful influence on everyone she touched, from the students she taught through the years, to the friends she so faithfully served and loved, to her two granddaughters that were the joy of her life. She had a mischievous streak, a wicked sense of humor, and her laugh was contagious. She was a member of Jacksonville First Baptist Church and Terry Davidson's Sunday School class. She is preceded in death by her parents, Charlie and Madge Biddy. She will be remembered by her best friend and loving husband of 52 years, David Cowart; her daughter, Leisha Cowart; son and daughter-in-law Michael and Judi Cowart; and granddaughters Masey and Kendall Cowart, who knew her as their MeMe; and a brother, Joe Biddy. The family will receive friends from 5-7 PM on Thursday, April 11 at Hardage-Giddens The Oaklawn Chapel 4801 San Jose Blvd., Jacksonville FL 32207 A Celebration of her life will be held at 11 AM on Friday, April 12 at First Baptist Church Jacksonville s Hobson Auditorium 124 W Ashley St. Jacksonville FL. 32202 with Pastor John Blount officiating.
