Susan Hewlett (Shipman)

Our beloved wife, mother, daughter and sister, Susan Hewlett Shipman, passed away at her home on May 12, 2002.

Susan was born Nov. 25, 1947, in Salt Lake City to James Kenneth and Arda Anderson Hewlett. Graduate of Westminster College. Married Robert Shipman on July 29, 1981.

Susan's love of life and joy of giving will be her legacy. She spent countless hours in volunteer work for Ute Conference Youth Football and the Cottonwood High School Booster Club. She opened her home to all her son's friends and loved them as her own.

For 20 years she worked in the Financial Aid Office at Salt Lake Community College. In her role there, she continued to help young people by providing opportunities that they may have otherwise missed. She also worked part time at JC Penney's Cottonwood Mall.

Susan was another neighbor that died too soon.  I went to girl scouts with Susan at the Lutheran church and our mom's were friends.  Susan and I spent Christmas afternoons playing with our dolls or new bicycles..  Their family had children the sames ages as our family and her brother Brent has remained a friend.  Susan's funeral was a neighborhood affair and she is buried at Sunset Lawn just down the street from our childhood houses.  This is a story from a small upstart neighborhood of parents striving to provide a nice new life for us baby boomers.  It was shocking when Susan died.  She was also a concrete friend and is missed.
