Susan Claire Sawyer White, age 74, died of natural causes on Jan. 27, 2018, in Anchorage, Alaska.
She is survived by her mother, Gene Sawyer; her sisters, Genie Holland and Anne Rutigliano; and brother, Charles Sawyer; her children, Kathleen Gilman, Christopher White and Brian Conroy; her grandchildren, Nathaniel Moore, Nicholas Swain and Ashley Swain; and her great-grandchildren, Lola Moore, Evangeline Swain and Adaline Swain. She is preceded in death by her father, William Sawyer; sister, Millie Sawyer; and brother, Robert Sawyer.
Sue was born on Dec. 22, 1943. She had a career in sales at Alaska Fish and Farm, but teaching guitar at University of Alaska Anchorage was her true passion.
Sue was a wonderful daughter, sister and mother that believed in the power of positive thinking. She was an avid crafter, making beautiful pieces that she enjoyed gifting to those around her. She loved road trips, shopping for fabrics and having movie nights in with her friends. Sue's daughter, Kathy, says: "Mom loved spending quality time with her family and friends. She enjoyed the simple things in life; a good fire, a good movie and a good pint of ice cream. She was a beautiful woman."
She will be remembered as warm and generous. She will be thought of often and fondly.
Please contact the family directly about services and floral or monetary donations.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
