Susan Caldwell Madison, 68, of Statesville, passed away peacefully Wednesday,  January 23, 2019 at the Gordon Hospice House.

Mom, Mrs. Madison, Suz, Bubby, Oumi - however you knew her - to know Susan was to know acceptance, love, kindness, and compassion. These traits guided her as a nurse, teacher, and mother. She was a devoted member of Oakland Presbyterian Church and of the greater Statesville community. Susan drew strength from her faith to uplift all those she encountered. May her example always inspire us to be our most compassionate, gracious, and loving selves.
