Susan, was born May 13th, 1930 to Craig and Virginia Sheaffer in Chicago, Illinois. Susan, a rare & delightful spitfire, was a perpetual joy to be around with a beautiful voice, a generous nature and a quick wit.

She met and married Charles Taylor, her true love and kindred soul, after his service in WWII; they were introduced by her brother John, After farming in Kansas, Susan moved her young family west with Charlie to Tremonton, Utah in 1955 to cultivate a new farm in the Curlew Valley.

Many neighborhood children spent delicious and pleasurable summer days with Susan and her sandwiches, laughing in the sunshine and frolicking around the yard under her kind, watchful eyes. Her love of cards and butter are legendary; her cooking and parties transcendent for their taste (literally) and vivacity. Along with being the figurative cement of her family and a great champion and supporter to many others in the community, Susan was a committed volunteer of the Red Cross Blood Bank, spending many years with the organization. Her incredible personality shines through in her children and grandchildren. She leaves many people that love her.
