Condolences for Joanie “Sue” Anderson Gardner

Colleen Ward, AmeriProd LLC posted on 10/25/18

I just found out a few days ago, and I am still so shocked. Sue (Joanie) was our customer service rep for our Manual Woodworkers orders. She was so nice, sweet and attentive; the few times there was ever an issue, she was quick to help us. We will miss her greatly! Our condolences to her family, friends, and coworkers.

Dear Sue, you have spread your angel wings and are now smiling down on all of your earthly friends. Apparently a higher power needed you. I know that you will continue to impart your contagious smile, encouraging advice and hugs, Even thou I retired and moved away I will miss you. You never had a bad thing to say about anyone. I am proud to have called you my friend, God needs angels everywhere.

Sue, you have been a friend and a caretaker to me, both brightening my day, encouraging and helping me throughout the years that I've known you..not only with customer service issues, but the day to day issues we face as reps on the road. We shared many stories together of experiences we had and many similar things we had in common. You were a bright, caring and loving person, loved by all, and you will be greatly missed. ❤

Sue and I would arrive to work at almost exactly the same time every day! She would come from one direction and I the other. We noticed that several years ago and found it a fun coincidence. We rode up in the elevator every day and she was always so kind and I enjoyed the sweet stories of her life. The elevator is lonely in the morning now. We will miss your kindness every day. Praying for Brandee and Curtis for peace and comfort from our Lord and Savior during this most difficult time and transition in your lives.

Dear Charles, Curtis, and Brandee I know there is pain in your hearts right now and you are missing Sue. My deepest sympathies go out to you all. Please know that that God cares about you and "is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit", (Psalm 34:18) May the “God of all comfort who comforts us in all our trials” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) help you cope with your grief and may his promise of a resurrection give you a hope to hold on to for the future. My sincere condolences to you and all of Sue’s family and friends.

Sue, you held me so tight that afternoon. We hadn't seen each other in years but realized at that moment that we never forgot. I love you 'glitter'. I thank God that you graced my presence that day. You reminded me that people that honestly care aren't judgemental. You sincerely looked me in the eye and asked me how life has been. You were there for me and I'll always cherish that. I love you.

To Sue's family: Please know that your wonderful daughter, wife, mom, grandmother and sister spread her Christ-filled spirit far beyond Hendersonville. I worked with her for most of the last 15 years as an independent sales rep for MWW, based in Orlando. I will miss her calm voice and her gentle sense of humor. She served those of us who relied upon her with great dignity. Even though you grieve your loss, I pray you feel a sense of joy knowing that she lives with the Lord.

You were a ray of sunshine! It doesn't seem real seeing your picture and realizing that this is real. I have so many wonderful memories of working with you at Cato's. I loved having our shifts together.. you made me laugh till I cried, you trained me and was patient.. you were just an all around good person. I'm so thankful I got to know you but am deeply saddened by the news. I pray for peace for the family . May God be with you all. My deepest condolences, Christine ramsey

Sue was the kindest and truest person I ever met. Beautiful lady that always helped everyone.


Helen Pace posted on 8/8/18

Oh, sweet Sue Boo... I don't even know what to say. You were like sunshine to so many people, always offering up a hug and a bright smile, and that laugh of yours was enough to fix any kind of bad day. You will be missed by so many people, in so many ways, for so many reasons, for a very long time. I know that you knew how loved you were and we all knew how much love you had for your husband, your kids, and those sweet grand babies. You are at peace now, and I hope that your family soon finds peace in all of this, too. I wish there was something that could be done to bring you back, to undo this thing, so that you'd have as much time as you deserved. You will be deeply missed, my friend.

I will never forget the sound of your voice, your laugh, and the smile on your face through the phone line. I'm so thankful for the times we got to have together. God bless your family as they mourn you and the devastating absence they now have in their lives.

Sweet Sue, Joanie Sue. I can see your big eyes now glancing to see who's walking by. Thank you for all the smiles. You sure could make me laugh! Rest in peace my friend ❤️

Dear Curtis, Brandee, and family... I am so very sorry for the loss of your mother. Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1). Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences…. John



Amanda Mack Smith posted on 8/7/18

I'll always cherish the time we spent together, whether you were giving motherly advise, be a shoulder to cry on or the one I shared a laugh with you were always a great friend to me. Thank you for all the smiles. Rest in Peace Sue....I'll see you again my friend. Love and prayers to your family.
