Suzan Edna Woodward

Born: 12/20/1956, Moab, Utah
Death: 6/1/2019, moab, Utah

Interment: 06/06/2019, 2:00 pm, Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery

Suzan Edna Woodward Dalton, daughter of Woody (L.H.) and Ann Woodward, passed peacefully on June 1, 2019 at the age of 62.

She was born in Moab on Dec. 20, 1956, and graduated from CEU with honors in 1976, and then USU in 1978 with a degree in Arts Education. She married the love of her life, Pug (Kevin) Dalton, twice. It was the best love story.

Suzi was so sweet, and thoughtful, and a fiercely creative force in the world. She impacted and shaped so many in her life; and will always be remembered for her generosity and artistry. She wanted everyone to remember how “fun and funny” she was. We will.

She loved sewing, cross-stitching, driving across the country on adventures, playing with her grandchildren, talking to her daughters and friends, laughing and joking with Pug, going to the mountains, watching sunsets, making pots, and staying in little old hotels with character.

After teaching art for years in Utah and then Nevada, she was able to start making pots full time when she moved to Arizona. There are many that treasure the inspiration and encouragement she provided as a teacher, and who cherish the work she left behind.

She is preceded in death by her mom (Ann), dad (Woody), and her brothers (Max & Bugsy).

She is survived by her husband, Pug Dalton, her daughter Danielle and granchildren Dominic, Matteo and Chiara, of Kayesville, UT, her daughter Annie and grandaughter Delilah, of Moab, UT, and her daughter Macey and granddaughter Aylah, of Moab, UT and her sister Leslie Ann Woodward.

A Graveside services will be held Thursday June 6, 2019 at 1:00 pm at the Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Moab.

The world is less now, less pretty, less sweet, less kind, less...


Pug, Annie, Macey, family and friends,

We are so very sorry to learn of Suzan's passing. She lives in our hearts. Memories? I have millions. We were neighbors and best friends. We were moms to little girls just starting school. We were Girl Scout leaders of a Daisy and Brownie troop that camped in the back yard and spent the night in the Phoenix Zoo. I still have and use some pieces of beautiful pottery that she made always reminding me of her. When I visit craft festivals, I am always reminded of the great weekends we had when she let me tag along - laughing and solving the world's problems. Suzan showed unconditional love to all. She was a free and giving spirit. She loved her girls fiercely and was so very proud of them. Yes, I agree, the world is a little less....

Susan was so sweet, she grew up in our neighborhood and we watched her grow through the years. We are saddened by everyone's loss. She did bring light to the world.

Such a surprise to see of Suzan's passing. She and I were roommates in 1977 when we both went to USU in Logan. We drove her old Volkswagen Bug from Moab/Green River. It didn't have a heater so we would bundle up and be frozen by the time we reached Logan! We lived in seriously ghetto conditions but I remember it with fondness. Suzan was such a positive person despite the challenges in her life. She was an inspiration to me and provided an important lesson in how to appropriately cope with life's challenges. I have thought of her many times in the passing years. My sincerest condolences to you.

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.
