Sanders of Charlotte; three daughters, Dianne Sanders of Shelby, and Sonda Kennedy and Gala "Bonnie" Reinke (Allen), both of Charlotte; her grandchildren, Todd W. Barron of Decatur, Ga., Connie Kennedy of Charlotte, Ansley Kennedy-Wooten of Greensboro, Shawn Brown (Angela) and Shannon Brown, both of Charlotte, Modestine Blanton of Durham, Lincey Generette (Nathan) of Shelby, Marsette Bridges (Terry) of Shelby, and Brandon Sanders of Tucson, Ariz.; twelve great-grandchildren; special nieces, Faye Allison of Shelby, Louise "Dee Dee" Wade of Kansas City, Mo.; her former son-in-law, Levon Kennedy of Greensboro; special friends who were always there for Mama Sue and will share in her loss, Harriett Adams of Gastonia, Bobby Davis of Chase City, Va., Guy Jones, Gardenia Wilson, Nadine Lipscomb, Lula Davis, Brenda and L.B.
