March 18, 1938 - November 26, 2021
Suzanne Petersen Plumb, 83, passed away on Friday Nov. 26th, 2021 in Mesa, AZ. She was born March 18th, 1938 to Kenneth and Beula Shumway Petersen. Suzanne was the oldest of five children, followed by brother, Russell, sister Kenna, brothers; Clarence and Bob. She loved Pinedale where her childhood was filled with fond memories of spending time at her Grandfather Andrew’s sawmill and with her dad as he was a logger, she also spent time in the outdoors enjoying the beauty of Gods creations. Her mother and father taught her the importance of faith, family and a love of music. Suzanne felt it a privileged to live close to both of her grandmothers as well as her aunts who helped teach her the art of homemaking. During her senior year at Snowflake Union High School, at a dance in Taylor Arizona, she was swept off her feet by Jackie W Plumb from Saint Johns and so the courtship began with Jack in his little Purple Hot Rod ‘47’ Ford Coupe and Suzanne in her “Poodle” Skirt. Suzanne and Jack were married on November 9, 1956 in the Mesa, AZ Temple for time and all eternity. With love and hope for the future they began the 65 year legacy together in a small upstairs apartment on Mountain Drive in St Johns, Arizona. Suzanne was a woman of great faith as an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where she enjoyed serving in the Primary as a Teacher and Chorister; she also served as a Relief Society and Ward Chorister. Later in life she learned to play the piano and found much enjoyment in music. She will be remembered as a choice daughter of her Father in Heaven serving without guile, giving without regard for her own needs and loving unconditionally all those she met. She had a way of making people feel special and important. Suzanne always made time for her children and family. She loved being a Grandma and made sure that every grandchild knew without reservation that she loved them. When they came to visit, she stopped whatever she was doing and gave them her full attention. She enjoyed spoiling her grandkids whether it was helping them bake whatever their hearts desired, making Mickey Mouse pancakes and homemade apple butter or strawberry jam, as well as reading them stories, being a listening ear and giving tender hugs. It filled her heart to see them learn and grow as she attended many Plays, Choir Concerts, Lit’l Bit and High School Rodeos, dance recitals, etc. She was preceded in death by her parents Charles Kenneth Petersen and Beula Shumway Petersen and brother, Russel Kenneth Petersen. She is survived by her husband Jack Plumb and children: Vance (Glenna) Plumb, Kenneth (Leslie) Plumb and Amy Plumb; Sister Kenna (Jim) Ballou, brothers; Clarence (Rose) Petersen and Robert (Nell) Petersen; 10 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
