Sue Paschall

July 7, 1936 — January 8, 2022

Sue Taylor Paschall, beloved wife, and mother of two sons, and grandmother of two grandchildren, passed away on January 8, 2022, at the age of 85.

She was born July 7, 1936 in Philadelphia, PA, to J. Carroll Taylor from Temperanceville,VA, and Helen Sturgis Taylor from Pungoteague, VA.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Peter B. Paschall,Sr; her younger son, Richard A. Paschall and his wife, Elizabeth Stockton Paschall, and their son, Nicholas; her elder son, Peter B. Paschall,Jr. and his daughter, Cassandra Paschall. She was especially close to her sister, Peggy Johnson and her niece, Meg Stevenson Larabee.

She spent her childhood in Evanston, IL, before the Taylor family was transferred to Richmond where she spent her teens and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School. She graduated from Longwood College in 1958 where she was a member of Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority. She was selected there to be listed in “Who’s Who in Students in American Universities and Colleges” and Alpha Kappa Gamma, National Leadership Sorority.

She taught school in Virginia Beach for several years, and then the young family moved to Westfield, NJ, where they spent more than a decade before moving to the Eastern Shore in 1974. She was an integral part of the Paschall family business for more than 50 years.

Sue had a variety of interests including movies: a seemingly endless supply of Gene Hackman films; sports: mostly football; and music: mostly Stephane Grappelli.

Blessed with the "talking gene", she took great delight in hours and hours of conversation about everything and nothing with sister Peggy, niece Meg, and daughter-in-law Elizabeth.

She was a wonderfully ebullient woman who moved forward with a mind over matter determination that was always enriched with a generosity of spirit and a kindness of heart.

There will be a family gathering at a later date.
