A member of Harmony Baptist Church throughout her life, Fannie Sue found solace and strength in her faith. She embodied the principles of kindness, love, and compassion taught by her church community.

Outside of work and church commitments, Fannie Sue found joy in tending to her yard. She had a green thumb and took pleasure in cultivating a beautiful and serene outdoor space. Her garden was a testament to her love for nature and her ability to make things flourish.

One of Fannie Sue's greatest joys was cooking delicious meals for her loved ones. Her kitchen was always filled with mouth-watering aromas as she prepared hearty dishes to be shared among family and friends. Gathering around the table with loved ones brought her immense happiness.

Her children were true blessings in her life and continued to make her proud with their accomplishments. Fannie Sue was also adored by four grandchildren: David Lawrence Crosby II (Amanda), Dylan Crosby (Maysi), Devyn Stokes (Dylan), and Kansas Crosby. Their presence brought immeasurable joy into Fannie's life. In addition to her grandchildren, Fannie Sue enjoyed the company of two great-grandchildren: Gracey Crosby (Damian Creech) and Grason Crosby, whose laughter and innocence always brought a smile to her face.

Fannie Sue is also survived by her three siblings, Jimmy Crapps, Jerry Crapps (Teresa), and Janice Crapps Cook. The bond they shared was unbreakable, and their support provided strength during both the happy and challenging times of Fannie Sue's life.
