Obit from FindAGrave:
On Sunday morning, June 2, 2002, Sue M. Pigg departed this life at 95 years of age. A descendant of pioneer Crawford County families, she was the daughter of George Wallace Hays and Minnie Vinsant. Born on the Fourth of July, 1906, Sue was the sister of Ardia White, Tressie Webster, Georgia Prue, High Buck Hays and Jim Hays, all now deceased. Early on as a pre-teen, Sue demonstrated the spunkiness that was a hallmark of her character by riding alone on horseback from her rural home to weekly piano lessons with Professor Kelton in Van Buren. She was educated in rural Crawford County schools and the Draughon's Business College. On April 16, 1934, Sue and Atha Pigg married in Van Buren. Their happy union of more than 51 years produced two daughters, Janice Loftin of Van Buren and Diana Evans of Fort Smith; a son, Atha Lamar of Staten Island, N.Y.; five grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. Tagged early on by her first grandchild as "Susie" rather than Grandma, the name stuck as it perfectly characterized the eternal youthfulness of her spirit and the playful, expansive love she freely shared with her family and her myriad friends. Sue has been a disciple from her early teen years, first becoming a member of Alexander Memorial Christian Church, where she served as Sunday school teacher and pianist, encouraging and supporting numerous young church members as they developed their faith and musical talents. For the past 16 years, she has been a member of Wood Memorial Christian Church. For all of her adult life, Sue held continuing memberships in the Rena Home Demonstration Club and the Fidelity Chapter of the Eastern Star, serving as Fidelity's organist for many years. Funeral will be 10 a.m. Friday at Ocker Funeral Home in Van Buren with burial at Pevehouse Cemetery. Pallbearers will be her nephews, Jim Buck, Wally, Darrell, Alvy, Tommy and Elliot Hays. Honorary pallbearers will be Tilsey Byram, Jess Staggs, Craig Henderson and fellow members of her Christian Women's Fellowship, the Eastern Star and Rena Home Demonstration Club.
