Susan Lenore Wixom Brower Pearson Obituary
Susan Lenore Wixom Brower Pearson passed away Sunday, November 15, 2015 at the Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello, Idaho.
Sue was born June 2, 1937 in Wapello, Idaho to Alvin LeRoy Wixom and Pauline Owens. She was the second of four children. Sue grew up in the Groveland area outside of Blackfoot, Idaho. The Wixom family was a large family and she enjoyed the association of many aunts, uncles and cousins. She graduated from Blackfoot High School in 1955.
Sue worked for the telephone company and it was because of her job that her parents were able to get telephone
service. She married Verl Charles Brower on Dec. 27, 1956. Verl was in the Navy and they moved
to Pensacola, Florida. They later moved to Rhode Island where there first two children, Kirk and Paula,
were born. They were transferred to the island of Oahu in Hawaii, where Malia was born.
In 1964, soon after leaving the Navy, Verl was killed in a helicopter accident, leaving Sue a widow with three
small children, ages 5, 3, and 1. Sue lived in Blackfoot for two years and supported her family.
She met Jay Fred Pearson at a dance and they were married Aug. 4, 1966. Jay was a rancher in the Lost River area near Moore, Idaho. To this union were born Jaylin and Fred. Sue lived the rest of her life in the Lost River Valley.
Sue loved to sew, garden, cook, and go for walks with her friends. She helped on the ranch and enjoyed the Butte County and Eastern Idaho State fairs every year.
The gospel of Jesus Christ was a central part of her life. As an active member of The Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints, she diligently took her children to church and served in numerous callings over the years. She enjoyed studying the gospel and teaching its doctrine.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Verl, and brother Ted.
