Susan was born in Cedar City, Utah, to Galen and Janis Gillespie Christensen on August 1, 1966. She grew up in Panguitch, Utah. Susan married Neil Foster on January 14, 1983. They were later sealed in the St. George Temple. As a girl, Susan spent much of her time on a farm on the River Lane in Panguitch. She and her siblings enjoyed all the things farm life had to offer.
Susan’s marriage to Neil at an early age propelled her into the business world and the hard work that would become her trademark for the rest of her life. As a business woman, Susan was exceptional in her ability to organize and direct many operations. She became a mother and was able to manage family, church, and business in a seamless stream of productivity.
Susan’s most important personal accomplishment was her family. Children came hard and at great effort to Susan, and she valued each of her children as precious little ones. Supporting her children and husband in all things and managing a home and business were super-human tasks that Susan accomplished until the time of her death. She was the “go-to” person.
Susan was preceded in death by her father, Galen H. Christensen, and her grandparents. She is survived by her three children, Jackie, Angela (Clayton) and Bryant, her husband Neil, along with her mother, Janis; her step-father, AJ Excell; her brothers, sisters, and three grand children.
