Susan “Sue” Frances Noe Miller passed quietly on Thursday, July 18, 2019 surrounded by some of her family at home.

Sue was born in Beaufort the daughter of the late Clarence and Lorraine Noe. She graduated from Beaufort High School where she excelled in academics as a Beta Club member and sports as a guard for the Sea Dogs girls basketball team. Later she furthered her education, receiving her Associates Degree from Carteret Community College, graduating with her daughter.

Sue was employed by First Citizens Bank for 21 years starting as a bookkeeper and working her way up the ranks. After her retirement, Sue pursued her passion for books. She was an avid reader, reading numerous books weekly, something she never before had time to do. Sue had stated after retiring that her goal was to read every book in the library and she almost accomplished that goal.

Sue was a member of the Home Extension Organization, den mother for both the boy and girl scouts, and attended almost every sporting event for all five of her children. Sue instilled in each of her children honesty, integrity and a will to make things happen.
