Susan Marie Spalding Urs, 81, left this world for her heavenly home on Monday, June 13th, 2022, in Oxford, MS. A graveside service will be held at Memorial Oaks Cemetery in Houston, TX on Monday, June 27th, 2022, at 10:00 A.M.
Susie was born October 17th, 1940, in Clinton, Iowa to W. Raymond and Margrette Eastland Spalding. She is the beloved mother to Deborah Sue Harbin and Lynn Wakeland. She was adored by 4 grandchildren, Joshua Harbin, Ruby L. Harbin, Nicole M. DeVito, and Christina Hutyra. Susie was the proud MiMiMi to her 6 great-grandchildren, R. McKinsey, Braylon, Maddox, Aurora, Lily, and Benjamin.
Susie spent many years working as a Legal Assistant in Houston, Texas. She had a zest for life that led her on many world travels. Italy, Paris, Finland, and Slovenia were a few of her favorite stops along the way. She loved gardening, crafting, her homemade pie crusts filled with cherries, her rolls hand-kneaded, and her coffee black. She was a devout Catholic, her laughter was contagious, and her hugs always warm.
Susie is survived by her two daughters, Debbie and Lynn, son-in-law Don Harbin, grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, 2 sisters, Gayle Van Est and Sheryl Sellers, and best 4-legged friend, Baxter. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Bobby J. Holland, parents, brother Richard Spalding, and great-grandson, Maddox.
In lieu of flowers, contributions honoring Susie can be made to the ASPCA.
