Mrs. Marie Sullivan, age 72, was born on September 13, 1949 in Woodlawn, VA the daughter of the late Roy and Gladys Hall Cruise. After graduating high school, Marie went on to cosmetology school. In 1984, she married her devoted husband, Richard Sullivan, and moved to Pageland, SC. She was employed at Pageland Screen Printers and later became the custodian for various community businesses. She mostly enjoyed cleaning the post offices of Pageland and Jefferson, where she met many friends. If the opportunity arose, she would get your name and address to add you to her mailing list.

Marie had a ministry of greeting cards. She included a special quote or Bible verse inside each one. Before mailing them, each envelope would be decorated with stickers. Her cards brightened the mail man’s day as well. She became known as the “The Card Lady.”

Marie trusted the Lord as her Savior and was a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church. We are grateful for every year the Lord gave us with her in His mercy. God gave her grace to persevere after brain tumor surgery and radiation in 2006. Then she continued to press forward after being diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia in 2017.

Marie loved her husband of 37 years, Richard, who made her laugh. They enjoyed picnics in the parking lot. She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, especially on pizza night. She will be greatly missed and dearly remembered as a faithful wife, precious mother, and loving maw-maw.

Marie was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Alta Vaughn; brother, Edward Cruise; and granddaughter, Lacee Sullivan.

Survivors include her husband, Richard Sullivan, of the home; daughters, Vonda (Rodney) Clark, and Sherri (Robin) Owens; son, Todd (Tammy) Sullivan; grandchildren, Kayla Clark, Stephen Clark, Amanda Clark, Christopher Owens, Cody (Amber) Owens, Levi (Pauline) Dixon, Josh (Lindsey) Dixon, Ty Dixon, and Jenna Sullivan.

The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to hospice nurse, Beverly Vaughn, and the entire staff of Regency SouthernCare Hospice of Chesterfield for the extraordinary love and care shown to Mrs. Sullivan and their family.

Memorials may be made to Bethlehem Baptist Church, 5732 Peach Orchard Road, Pageland, SC 29728.

This tribute was written by Mrs. Sullivan’s family who wishes to honor her beautiful life by sharing a special verse: "Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her." ~ Proverbs 31:28
