Celinda Sue Abney passed away on Sunday, January 3, 2021 at Palestine Regional Hospital. She was born at Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center on June 29, 1970.

Celinda was a loving mother, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend. Her presence will be greatly missed. She was a Christian and loved the Lord. Her contagious smile, warm energy, and compassionate love never went unnoticed. The most important thing in Sue’s life, besides the Lord, was her son, Jackson Abney, he was her world. Her favorite bible verse was “The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1.
