Obituary of Sue W. Witt

It is with great sadness we announce that Sue W. Witt passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 1, 2023 surrounded by her family at White House Healthcare after a long battle with dementia. Sue was born on August 19, 1943 in Madison County, Indiana.

Sue was preceded in death by her father, Tracy Whitson; mother and step-father, Mary and George Norris; sister, Leona Srygler.

She is survived by her children, Donald Parker, Michael Kirby, Steven (Kelly) Kirby and Kimberly (Larayco) Mayberry; grandchildren, Jessica Kirby, Colby Kirby, Kyle (Ashleigh) Kirby, Austin (Kaitlyn) Kirby, Katherine Kirby, Kane Ray, and Kalen Ray; six great-grandchildren; sisters, Connie (Bud) Tate, Margie Fulkerson, and Diane Mullins; several nieces and nephews.

Sue was a beloved insurance agent for many years at Lorin Mullins Insurance Agency and Franklin Insurance. She touched many lives and built so many great relationships during this time. She lived a life filled with love as a mother, grandmother, sister and friend.


Cremation was chosen and a private memorial service will be held at a later date.

“To My Mother”

If I were granted one wish today, it would be to hear your voice like it used to be, so soft, so quiet, so clear; that voice has been silenced during the last few years.

I know my wish will not come true, for I will treasure all my memories of the Mother I once knew.
