Mrs. Beadles, 67, died Saturday August 29 at Rush Hospital. Sue, affectionately known as “Nana” to everyone, enjoyed reading, sewing, canning and cooking for family get-togethers which were always at her house. She had a nursing career that spanned over 25 years, an infectious laugh and always had a huge smile. She especially loved her church families at both Duffee Church of Christ and Union Church of Christ.

Sue is survived by her two daughters Justice Rainer of Meridian, MS and Adella Rainer Gilbert of Little Rock, MS; two special grandchildren Jeremy Key and Pierce Allen Gilbert; her siblings Gail Saxon, Darlene Davis and Mike Buffington along with numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents Vernal and Etoy Buffington; her husband J.P. Rainer and a son Jamey Rainer.

The family would also like to thank the caring staff of Rush ICU that helped take care of her.
