"Of all the gifts both great and small a Mother's love is best of all".

Susie Mae Kerr Barnette, age 90, died July 9, 2017 at Morning View at Irving Park under the care of their compassionate staff and Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro. Susie was born to Guilford Allison Kerr and Stella Mae Sherrill Kerr on August 12, 1926 in Iredell County, North Carolina. She lived, worked and raised her family in Mooresille, NC. Susie moved to Greensboro in 1996. She was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Lynn McGee Barnette. For the span of their marriage they were devoted partners and the "perfect team".

Susie is survived by her daughter, Bev Sykes and husband Al, and her Son, Rick Barnette and wife Lynne. Her grandchildren include Hunter Sykes, Greensboro; Kate Sykes, Raleigh; Matthew Barnette (Ashley), Tega Cay, SC; Chad Barnette (Maisy), North Port, Florida. In addition there are three great-grandchildren.
