In Memoriam: Suzanne Barefoot Younts

by | Jul 6, 2021

Suzanne Barefoot Younts, age 64, tragically passed away June 17, 2021. She was born in Wilmington, N.C. Sue was predeceased by her parents Graham Ballard Barefoot Jr., Suzanne Mauzé Gould and her brother, Graham Ballard Barefoot, III.

Sue graduated from Agnes Scott College, received her Master’s in Education and was a public-school teacher for over 25 years. Sue was a devoted Christian throughout her life. She enjoyed quilting, knitting, baking and spending time outdoors. She was a proud mother to William, Anna, and Eleanor. Her husband Bud was her best friend and she enjoyed traveling with him. Sue was happiest in the mountains and with her extended family at Wrightsville Beach and the Black River.

She will be deeply missed by her family, and they will strive to live their lives the way she did, loving thy neighbor as thyself.

She is survived by her husband, William ‘Bud’ Younts; her children, William Meacham of Southport, N.C., Anna Nashashibi (Said) of New York, N.Y., Eleanor Funderburg (Will) of Charlotte, N.C.; the father of her children David Meacham; step-children Christian Younts (Danilo) and William Younts IV (Stephanie); her siblings Eleanor Smythe, Elizabeth Vinson and Layton Barefoot; two step grandchildren Emmaline and Brooke; her grandchild Noah Funderburg the apple of her eye; and a large loving extended family.

A funeral service was held on Tuesday, June 22 at Davidson United Methodist Church, 233 South Main St, Davidson, N.C. The family received friends following the service in the fellowship hall.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to FeedNC or Fifth Street Ministries.
