A mother to all who are fortunate enough to know her, Susan McGehee is nothing short of a miraculous and amazing woman. I could leave it at the fact that she survived raising the four McGehee boys (Randy not included) as testament to her patience, love, grace, and fortitude, but there is so much more to her than that. Needless to say, many profanities were blurted out during those hostile and trying years, but today you’d be hard-pressed to hear Mama Sue say anything worse than “darn it” or “well I’ll be…”. However, some at the lake claim to have heard her call someone a “grumpy old tale-hole” once, but I sincerely doubt that. Mama Sue makes nearly all of the desserts for Benjamin’s and can often be found hosting on Friday nights during the hectic and humid summers. Oddly enough, her favorite memory at Benjamin’s is also the mysterious concert of August 28, 2010. Apparently, it was the closest thing to a gospel concert that there has been at Benjamin’s and she truly enjoyed it. Her favorite foods are whatever her boys decide to make for her, as she knows there is love in every bite. Her favorite drink is a double Long Island Iced Tea… virgin, of course.
