Sue Ellen Null Cahoon, of Roanoke, Virginia passed away on Monday, May 10, 2021 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. She was the devoted wife and life-long companion since childhood of her surviving husband, John Lee Cahoon, both having grown up in Covington, Virginia. She was a loving mother, devoted friend, welcoming hostess, and the backbone of the Cahoon family.

Sue Ellen graduated from Madison College with a degree in Business Education, and quickly embraced her role as an Army wife, following her husband to Germany for his service. They later moved back to the USA and settled in Towson, MD. Her greatest joy was raising her two children and creating a loving, welcoming home. As her children grew, she later managed a cardiologist’s practice in Baltimore.

Sue Ellen had a passion for music and was an enthusiastic choir member and pianist. She loved to spend her time with friends, neighbors, and hosting crab feasts in the summertime. Life was always a party with Sue involved. She was active in Zeta Tau Alpha and served as the President of the Richmond Alumnae chapter. She had a heart for volunteering and serving those with cancer and in hospice therapy.

Sue is also survived by her daughter, Dr. Linda Lee Hart (Roger) from Goochland, VA; her son, John Payne Cahoon (Carn) from Joppa, MD; and her grandson, John Scott Largen, Esqr. from Miami, FL.

Friends are invited to visit with the family from 5-7 p.m. on Friday June 25, 2021 at Oakey’s South Chapel. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 26, 2021 at Colonial Presbyterian Church with Rev. Brent Williams officiating. Following the service at the church friends are invited to join the family for a reception at Oakey’s South Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Good Samaritan Hospice (2408 Electric Rd., Roanoke, VA 24018), Hermitage Samaritan Program (1009 Old Country Club Rd., Roanoke, VA 24017), Boys Home of Virginia (414 Boys Home Rd., Covington, VA 24426), or the Alzheimer’s Foundation (alzfdn.org/support-us/donate).

My memories of Sue Cahoon are mostly of fun times - family and friends gathered together for holidays and events. There was rarely a quiet moment as my "Crazy Aunt Sue" so enjoyed the company of others, and was always interested in what you had going on. The front door to Sue & Punkey's was perpetually open.

My family and I will miss her dearly. I hope that heaven has her so busy that she doesn't have time to miss us.
