Mary Sue Daniel Carrington
Mary Sue Daniel Carrington, 92, a longtime resident of White Hall, passed away on April 19, 2014, after a lengthy illness, at home with her family in Rowlett, Texas.
She was born January 01, 1922, in Bluffton (Yell County) to the late Ben E. and Ada Aikman Daniel. Sue was a member of First Baptist Church of White Hall and a 50-year member of Union #40 of the Order of Eastern Star.
Sue was employed by Safeway Stores at the age of 21 and worked for them for 25 years before retiring.
