Susan Sweeton-Douthitt

September 22, 1955 — November 5, 2023

Susan Delores Sweeton-Douthitt, 68, a resident of Calhoun, TN for the past 28 years, passed away on Sunday, November 5, 2023. Susan was born in Soddy Daisy, TN, and was the daughter of the late Dorthea C. Sweeton Carroll and Toy Sweeton.

Susan was a dreamer with remarkable tenacity to overcome anything that stood in her way.

She spent over 12 years with the U. S. Air Force which allowed her to explore several countries. She was recognized with several accommodations during her time in service and eventually retired as a Staff Sergeant. She became a member of the Tennessee State Guard in 2007 which she and was promoted to Sergeant First Class in less than a year and continued to serve as a volunteer member until her death.

She was a well-loved member of her community with her commitment to serving others through her church, contributed to various charities, and was known by some as a second mom.

Though she may no longer be with us in person, Susan's spirit lives on in the memories we hold dear and passed along her strength to her children.

She leaves behind three daughters, Jennifer D. Baykal, Melanie M. Baykal, and Sarah A. Douthitt, and five sisters, Linda Odom, Sarah Sweeten, Ruby Tinney, Toyetta Edwards, and Gayle Gravitt, along with numerous nephews, nieces, other extended family members and a host of special friends.

A funeral will be held to celebrate the life of Susan Delores Sweeton Douthitt on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, at 12:00 pm with a visitation from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at Companion Funeral Home in Cleveland, TN. The interment will follow at Chattanooga National Cemetery with Pastor Ray Ingram to officiate.

Friends and family are invited to join us in paying our respects and sharing our fond memories of this extraordinary woman. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial tributes be directed to Susan's funeral fund to assist with expenses.

May she rest in peace and her dreams forever fulfilled.
