In Loving

Onrea Lou “Susie” Miles

August 14, 1938 – December 15, 2023

Onrea Lou “Susie” Miles, 85, went to be with the Lord on Friday, December 15, 2023.

Susie was preceded in death by her brothers, Bobbie Lee and William Floyd Mize, great-granddaughter, McKayla Alley, and daughter-in-law, Bobbie Jean Miles. She is survived by her husband of 67 years, Frankie Lee Miles; son David B. Miles; daughter Linda G. Burch (David); five grandchildren, Lori Watson (Frank), Jesse RePass (Connie), Kristie Demarest (Russell), Ashley Lewis (Hunter), and Melinda Miles; and 12 great-grandchildren Trevor, Deklynn, Tristan, Justyne, Ethan, Frankie, Luke, Miles, Cormac, Wyatt, Audrey, and Maren.

Susie was born in Atlanta, GA to Robert and Thelma Mize and moved to Richmond, VA at a young age. Although she lived in Richmond most of her life, she always considered Georgia to be home and cherished her visits back to Stone Mountain and Atlanta. Her most recent trip was in the summer of 2021 with Lori and her family. In her later years, Susie lived in Charles City, VA where she was an active member of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. Susie loved most genres of music, cooking, puzzles, and tending to her flowers.

Susie’s family would like to thank Hanover Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center for their care and compassion during her final days as well as the ministry of Mt Pleasant Baptist Church for their love and support.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, January 12 at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, 19300 The Glebe Ln, Charles City. Reception and fellowship immediately following.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Susie’s memory to Mt Pleasant Baptist Church.
