NEWTON, N.C. - Willie Sue Rader Raley Huffman, 91, of Newton passed away on Thursday, September 9, 2021 at Abernethy Laurels in Newton, after a long life of loving her family and friends.

She was a kind, sweet soul combined with unrequited strength and her distinctive beautiful grey hair and her natural smile made her known to many.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, James C. Raley; second husband, Forney Huffman; brothers, Woodrow Wilson Rader and Perry Ralph Rader; sisters, Mary Sigmon and Margaret Moose.

Those left to cherish her memory is her son Jimmy Raley and wife Rosalie of Cornelius; sister Jean Harris of Gaithersburg, Md.; nieces Diane Moose Goodson and husband Kermit, Frances Moose, Alice Moose Wood and husband Otis, Becky Reinhardt Woods, Betty Ann Reinhardt; nephew Bobby Reinhardt and wife Karen.
