Mildred Sue Cook Causey, daughter of the late George and Mary Cook, was born on March 22, 1931 in Little Rock, Arkansas. She passed away on August 23, 2020. She was the fifth of eight children. She was preceded in death by her husband, Amos Sr., daughter, Iris Causey, and brothers George, Albert, Daniel, Andrew and Arthur.
She went to Dunbar High School and graduated in 1948 and later attended college. In 1952, while working at Lido Cafeteria in Little Rock, Arkansas, she met Amos Causey. They dated for three years and married on January 17, 1955. To their union was born seven children, two boys and five girls.
When her husband was called into the ministry, mom chose to become a homemaker, to be able to fully support him and also be available to teach her children Godly values. She loved to cook, and would fry the fish for the Sunday fish dinners, used to raise money for the church.
She took care to raise each of us to love the Lord and to spend time with Him.
She loved God’s word and taught each of her children to read using the bible. Her favorite passage was the 23rd Psalm. She had the basic belief in the Golden Rule, saying “You should do right because it’s right to do right”!
Mom was a member of Mount Calvary Baptist Church, where she sang in the choir and taught Sunday school. She later joined New Breed Ministries, where she has received an outpouring of love, support and faithful ministry. She loved the Lord and she was a praying woman! Regardless of what circumstance or adversity presented itself to her or her family, her response was always the same: “All is well!”.
She was a wife, a mother, a sister, and a friend, and could easily be described as thoughtful, giving, and caring.
She was a true warrior, astounding the doctors through her many health challenges.
She was creative, making ice-cream using the snow from the garbage tops and adding milk and sugar, while we were living in Virginia. She was also a girl scout Leader, designing and teaching her troops to sew backpacks, from towel materials, for hiking in the woods.
She had a great memory, remembering all the phone numbers of her family members, even after losing her sight. Even as adults, she would do wake-up calls each morning.
She has lived a full and blessed life, not just raising her children, but seeing the fruits of her labor with each of her children receiving the Lord.
Mildred leaves to cherish her memory: two sons Amos Causey Jr. and Carlton Causey; four daughters, Dianne Causey, Barbara (Curtis) Beedles, Mary Causey, and Tina (Richard) Sealey, (all of the Atlanta area); grandchildren Michael (Gwen) Causey (Pensacola FL) Michelle Causey, Carlton Causey Jr., Victoria Sealey and Sydney Sealey; great-grandchildren Mikayla Causey, Miyah Causey, Carlton Maurice Causey Jr. III and Messiah Maurice Causey; siblings, Julia Lawson and Hazel Barnes-Maddox; Cheryl Johnson and a host of caregivers, cousins, nieces and nephews.
