Suzanne Revels Daniels of Oak Island passed away Sunday, May 19, 2019. 

Born March 15, 1957 in Lumberton, Suzanne graduated from Lumberton High School in 1975, attended Meredith College, Brooks Institute of Photography, and graduated from University of North Carolina at Pembroke. 

She later married Robert (Bobby) H. Daniels, Jr. and raised a family in Lumberton where she was an active community volunteer through Jr. Service League, First Presbyterian Church and Community Hospice. Spending most of her time on the coast and in the Colorado mountains, she enjoyed sharing stories with friends both old and new.

Suzanne’s love for music lead to her many adventures on the road: she once even toured with her beloved band, The Eagles. If she wasn’t tuning guitars or running lights, she was keeping the boys out of trouble. She truly was a mother to all around her. She was also a poet in her own right, always scribbling her thoughts down. Her creative vision helped her thrive as a college photography instructor at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. She was a creative jack of all trades! Suzanne Revels Daniels, was magenta in a khaki world.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, M. Thomson McRackan and Margaret Craig McRackan of Southport; and her parents, Ray Virgil Revels, Sr. and Ann McRackan Revels of Lumberton. 

She is survived by her son Craig and daughter Maggie; brother, Ray Revels, Jr. and his wife Kathy; sister, Lucia Lindsey and her husband Terry; along with numerous nieces and nephews.

The family is planning a private remembrance. There will also be a celebration of life among her friends scheduled at a later date in Lumberton. 

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Southport-Oak Island Animal Rescue (S.O.A.R.) at 3376 St. Charles Place SE, Southport, NC 28461 or

The family would like to thank Suzanne’s friends who loved and encouraged her throughout her life. She treasured each of you!
