Susan Tippets Moncur, 70, passed away peacefully on May 16, 2019, in St George, Utah, due to natural causes. She was born April 15, 1949, in Ogden, Utah, to Ray Maurice and Edna Burniece Allen Tippets. Susan always said she wanted to die from TMDB (too many damn birthdays), but unfortunately that was not to be.
Susan married Gary Lynn Moncur on Sept. 6, 1968, in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. They met on the first day of school at Weber State College in 1967 and quickly became best friends and soul mates. They shared over 50 wonderful years together. Gary and Susan were blessed with three children and four grandchildren. Susan loved them all dearly and missed them terribly when they were apart.
Susan taught school at Farnsworth Elementary School in West Valley City for 27 years. She was most proud of her work with learning-disabled children, teaching many of them to read. She loved them all and they loved her. Her favorite conversation topic was always her school kids.
Susan is survived by her husband Gary, children Michael (Laura), Matthew (Melanie) and special daughter Kristen, grandchildren Ian, Alexa, Samantha and Sean, sisters Karen, Betty, Carlene and brother Paul. She was preceded in death by her parents, four brothers and two sisters.
There will be a family graveside service in the near future at Tonaquint Cemetery in St George. We encourage you to remember Susan by hugging and loving your family. Life is precious and time is short.
Family and friends are invited to share tributes at Serenity Funeral Home online.
