Waynesville – Emojean “Sue” Israel Underwood Cope, age 86, entered into the arms of her Lord and Saviour on Sunday, November 21, 2021.

Emojean was born July 12, 1935 to the late George Nelson and the late Edna Long Israel. “ Aunt Sue” as she was lovingly known by her family and many friends was a lady blessed with a loving, giving and caring heart. She had been employed as a private caregiver and she had also worked for several years at Mountain Manor Rest Home in Waynesville where she had prepared her delicious home cooked meals for the patients and brought a ray of sunshine into their lives each day. Sue loved all animals, any cat, dog, bird or squirrel always caught her attention. During the summer season she worked tirelessly in her garden and when she needed some quiet time she enjoyed watching her favorite old classic movies and listening to music.  Emojean “ Aunt Sue” Cope was indeed a lady with a strong faith and we rejoice on this day knowing that she in her eternal heavenly home.

 In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her former husband and father of her daughter, Henry Underwood; her late husband, Charles Cope; her infant son, Chadwick David Underwood; and several sisters and brothers.

Surviving are her daughters, Sarah Beth Underwood of Asheville and Theresa Ann Haynes and husband Charles of Memphis, TN; her brother, Melvin “John” Israel of Waynesville ;several nieces and nephews; and a very special and dedicated friend and caregiver, Kevin Harvey.

In honoring Mrs. Cope’s wishes, there will be a private service held at a later date.
