Suzanne G Stengel

Born: 4/20/1946, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Death: 8/18/2014, Moab, Utah
Service: 08/22/2014, 11:00 am, St. Francis Episcopal Church

Few are those who can warm the hearts of so many, win the respect of a community and all who new her, inspire with her kindness and humble with her humility. Suzie Stengel was one such person. She passed away on Monday, August 18 in her home with her family by her side after a short fight with cancer.

Suzie was born April 20, 1946 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She traveled the world before moving to Moab with her husband, Tom, and daughters in 1989. It was here that for 13 years she worked her dream job at Nichols Expeditions.

She is survived by her husband, Tom Stengel, daughters, Rebecca Stengel and Jamie Clausen, brother, KennCorwin Gardner, and sister, Barbra Gardner.

She will be greatly missed.

A memorial service open to the public be held at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Moab at 11 am on Friday, August 22. We request that instead of flowers you donate to a charity of choice.


I bid you come and contemplate the universe and its contents, a spectacle apprehended not by the eye of the body but by the unsleeping eyes of the mind. Only let there be a constant and profound longing for wisdom which fills its scholars and disciples with varieties glorious in their exceeding loveliness. (Philo's De Specialibus Legibus i. 49ff.)


8/23/2014 - What a huge loss for all of us. A truer, loving soul, I have never met and doubt I ever will. She loved life, her family and friends and she loved her Creator. Oh Susie, I will miss you and that wonderful smile and big hug. - Teri Markle

8/21/2014 - Suzie was a sweet and kind person who will be missed by many. I remember how she spoke of climbing all the Colorado 14ers. She was a great mom and wife and we are so sad to see she's passed on. Tom and daughters , you are in our prayers. - Leo & Jae Dutilly

8/20/2014 - In 1998, I was working fees with Susie when I found out I was pregnant with Tobin. I was young and full of anxiety about how my life was going to change, and whether or not I was up for the challenge of being a working mom. I still cherish the countless hours of stories and advice Susie shared with me in-between cars. Arches was not as busy then. Even though I have hardly seen her in the past dozen years, I know that the world will miss her. - Heidi - Heidi Wainer

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
