BRANSON, Mo.– Margaret “Sue” Pulley, age 74, was born on April 10, 1944 to the late Ellis Monroe & Katie Mae (Skaggs) Miller in Bonne Terre, Mo. Sue departed this life on July 8, 2018 at her home in Branson, Mo.
Sue moved to Wyoming with her best friend, Julie Faye Matson. There she met and married the love of her life, the late Robert Dean Pulley on May 27,1977. Sue and Bob loved going to the mountains to camp, hunt, and fish, taking along Bob’s son, John Pulley, on the adventures at times and Charlie & Sheila when they were around for a visit.
Sue took a special interest in mentoring her younger sister-in-law, Charla Gutierrez. The two became very close, especially during Charla’s teenage years. Sue and her mother-in-law used to have a wonderful time doing crafts and going to craft shows to sell their creations.
During her years in Wyoming, she became very close to all of her extended family there.
Later on Sue moved to Texas to be close to her sister, Joyce, and brother- in- law, Sonny, and all of her nieces, nephews, and great- nieces and nephews. She loved it there but in late 2006 her mother, Katie, became unable to live alone so Sue moved to Bonne Terre, Mo to help care for her mom.
In 2008 Sue moved in with her son, Charlie and his wife, Mary, who she had been with ever since. She enjoyed starting each morning with a Bible study with Charlie, and loved being with her great- grandchildren as much as possible.
Sue was preceded in death by her husband: Robert Dean Pulley, her parents: Katie Mae & Ellis Monroe Miller, her brothers: Jackie Miller and Phillip Miller, and her sister: Norma Jean (Miller) Wallace, and her father-in-law: Chuck Fryburger.
Sue is survived by her daughter Sheila (James) MacBride of Troupe, Texas; her sons Charlie (Mary) McNew of Branson, Missouri and John (Shaina) Pulley of Laramie, Wyoming; her sister Joyce (Sonny) Mahurin of West Columbia, Texas; her grandchildren Chayce Mell of Troupe, Texas, Bryce Mell of Troupe, Texas, Lexi Pulley of Laramie, Wyoming, Jacqui Pulley of Laramie, Wyoming, Chris McNew of Branson, Missouri, Henry Hood Jr of Branson, Missouri, Jon McNew (Britany Charboneau) of Park Hills, Missouri, Paul McNew (Meagan McIntyre) of Tyler, Texas; her great-grandchildren Kaitlyn & Kyra of Springfield, Missouri, Zoey & Alex of Branson, Missouri, Iris & Lily of Park Hills, Missouri; and many cousins, nieces, nephews, great- nieces nephews, and dear friends.
