SUPPLY — Susan D. Mercer passed away on August 8, 2021, at the age of 71. Susie is preceded in death by her parents Rodney and Lela Clayton as well as sister-in-law Bobbie Clayton. She is survived by her husband, Robert Mercer, and their blended family of four daughters: Jennifer McConville, Magen Youngs (son-in-law Jamell), Amanda Mercer and Erin Watson (son-in-law Matthew); thirteen grandchildren: Braden, LaQuisha, Raven, Hannah, Brooklyn, Hailey, Tashia, Arianna, Tristan, Zachary, Annabelle, Wyatt and Ellis; and two great- grandchildren: Maverick and Penelope. Additionally, her brothers, Rodney Clayton, John Clayton ( sister-in-law Debbie), and Billy Clayton (sister-in-law Jeanne).
After proudly graduating as a Leland Tiger in 1969, she worked in textiles for many years, later becoming a sales associate. She was known for working hard, taking care of others, and greatly loving God, family, and friends. Some things that brought her joy were spending time with her grand-dog, Aubrie, watching movies while eating buttered popcorn, reading Harlequin novels, and feeding the birds in her backyard. Losing her has left a huge hole in our hearts and we will miss her always! The outpouring of support from family and friends has been a blessing to our family. Plans for a memorial service have not yet been completed and will be announced at a later date.
Services are in the care of Coastal Cremations, 6 Jacksonville Street, Wilmington, NC 28403.
