September 11, 1944 ~ May 6, 2007


Susan Manion White passed away Sunday, May 6, 2007 in Salt Lake City.

Susan was born September 11, 1944 in Presque Isle, Maine to William and Edna (Olsen) Manion.  She graduated from Weber High School in Ogden, Utah in 1962. 

After marrying Steven L. White in 1963 and having her first daughter in Salt Lake City, the family moved to California, then to Hawaii, where her second daughter was born, and then back to California.

The family then settled in Thousand Oaks, California where Susan pursued various careers and attended UCLA, but we have no information about her personal life after 1982.  The last job we know of was working as an Industrial Relations Assistant, recruiting engineers in the electronics industry.

Her hobbies at the time included motocycling, bicycling, tennis, golf and competitive archery.

She was survived by her two daughters, Teri Ann (Shawn) Cooper and Jennifer Denny; three grandchildren and two sisters, Joan (Ned) Kohler and Cindy (Kerry Thompson); and an aunt, Lorna Jones.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

Funeral services for Susan were held on Friday, May 11, 2007 at 10 a.m. at the Cottonwood 1st Ward, 5913 Highland Drive in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Arrangements were under the direction of Aaron’s Mortuary and Crematory, 1600 Washington Blvd, Ogden, Utah. Interment was in Logan City (Utah) Cemetery.

WHS Class Of '62 Committee

The Committee received the following comment on 7/24/12 from Susan's sister, Joan:

What a delightful and bittersweet surprise to see this memorial to my sister, Susan. We were very close and her “too soon” death is still sad for me to realize. You have done a beautiful job with the memorial and our family really appreciates it. I will make sure her daughters and our other sister get the link.

Thank you so very much – I DO like it!

Note: Joan attended Weber as well, a year behind our class and is also in the "Office Personnel" picture on Susan's page above (top row, far left).  Here's Joan's Junior picture from the '62 Golden Spike...
