Susan Laura Anderson Lee
1950 - 2018
Our darling sweet Mother, Grandma, Aunt, Sister, and friend called Slee, Susan Laura Anderson Lee, passed away April 25, 2018 after a courageous battle with uterine cancer.
She was born December 4, 1950 as the third oldest child of Lawrence and Ruth Anderson. She and her six siblings grew up in Tooele, Utah. After graduating from Tooele High School and spending some summers working for her aunt and uncle in Yellowstone, she married Jay Albert Lee of Grantsville on Oct. 16, 1970 and together they had four children. She became a widow in 1982.
All who knew her spoke only kind words of her and she never spoke ill of anyone. Hers was a life of service, selflessness and pure charity. Simply put, she went about doing good.
She enjoyed playing the piano and playing the clarinet in marching band. Swimming, reading books, cooking, watching The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Star Wars, Star Trek and Avenger movies as well as classic musicals brought her great joy. She also delighted making her home a place of respite for many over the years.
She worked for a time at the Tooele Army Depot and for 23 years at Tooele Title Company where they were like her second family. She simultaneously spent years caring for her aging mother.
She was active in the LDS Church and served for many years in the Primary and Young Women’s Programs of the Grantsville 5th Ward.
She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, brother Ray and sisters-in-law Angie Anderson and Janet Lee. She is survived by her siblings Dana (Sharon), Richard, Steven (Natalie), Patricia (Steven) Turner and Kathryn Nunley, her children Kenneth (Vicki), Carrie (Heri) Sutanto, Christine (Christopher) Johnson, Karen (Trevor) Crawford and 10 grandkids – Kelton, Taylor, Kayla, Benjamin, Hailey, Lauren, Tyler, Dillon, Brinlee and Audrey.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 3, 2018 at the Grantsville, Utah West Stake Center (115 East Cherry Street, Grantsville, UT).
A family visitation will be held prior to the service from 9:30 – 10:45. Interment will be at the Tooele City Cemetery.
