Although I believe I met her only once at Klint and Mary's wedding, I can only herald her for rearing her two children that I know: Teri who is gorgeous and talented and giving and lovely, and Klint, my nephew-in-law with whom I fell in love the first time Mary introduced him to me. She and I have been fighting for him ever since!. Always a smile, always pleasant, always working hard, always hilarious, always a good, very good, kind man. She did so well with these two, I am sure her other five children must be just as wonderful. Sorry I did not get to know you, Susan. I would loved to have know Klint's mom.

So sorry to hear about Susan's passing. She always treated me like family. I remember her taking Sean & I to my first football game in a large stadium BYU VS Air Force, I was the only one rooting for Air Force.
I think we were in 6th grade or so. I also remember the annual Brearton garage sales, these were a 3 or 4 day event that started on a Wednesday or Thursday and went until Saturday. She baked snicker doodles, Chocolate Crinkles & chocolate chip this was a fun time. Remember the good times!

So sorry to hear about Susan's passing. She always treated me like family I will always remember that. I will share a few memories that come to mind . One she took Sean & me to a BYU VS Air force football game which was my first time being in the BYU stadium, I think we were maybe 6th grade or so we had a blast that day. I was the only one rooting for Air Force. Also I remember the annual Brearton garage sales that your mom coordinated. This was like a 3 or 4 day event it would start on like a Wednesday or Thursday & go through Saturday. Susan would bake snicker doodles, chocolate crinkles & chocolate chip. I would purchase quite a few of these cookies!

Remember the good times

I went to high school with Susan. She was so sweet and as I read what she wrote in my yearbook, it saddens me to know she has passed away. God bless all of you at this time.

First, my deepest sympathy to her 7 children Tori, Teri, Sean, Christopher, Clinton, Kasi and Shea and to her loving sister and my beautiful mom, Diane.
I have many fond memories of my Aunt Susan. She was a lady I idolized growing up. I spent a great amount of time with her in my youth. She was such an amazing woman that set a wonderful example to me as I grew up. She was a very inspirational woman that taught me so much with her many amazing and endless talents and her loving guidance as a sister, wife, aunt, mother and friend. Her beauty was breathtaking in my eyes, both, inside and out. She showed love and kindness to everybody she came across. I cannot begin to say how very much I admired her, learned from her and loved her. She taught me many skills in those days, that I have used and continue to use in my life today. I haven't been able to see her much in later years, with regret, but she was an amazing woman that touched my life with so many wonderful and loving qualities. I don't think there are many days in which she hasn't come upon my mind with loving thoughts and memories. I only wish I could have had one last opportunity to tell her what she meant to me. Still young and gone to soon, I will miss her very much and always remember and keep those memories tucked away in my heart, forever. Until we meet again, I love you, my dearest, beautiful Aunt. So much love, forever and always, your niece, Kim
