Elizabeth Suzanne Frasuer 1938 ~ 2023 Our beloved Suzanne Frasuer passed from this life on April 13, 2023 at her family home in Salt Lake City. Many of her family and friends were able to be by her side in her final days. Suzanne was born in Santa Barbara, CA on August 13, 1938 to Ferrel Hightower and Bluford Hayes Frasuer. Suzanne lived with her mother, Bluford, in various locations in her early years, including California, Utah and Georgia. Bluford and her sister Mogene frequently lived near each other, and Suzanne had a very close relationship with her Aunt Mogene, cousins Dan Jr., Charles and Richard Ogles, and Uncle Roy Anderson. Sue graduated from Bass High School in Atlanta, Georgia, and associated with many of the faithful members of the LDS Church in the area.

Sue and Bluford moved to Salt Lake City when Sue was in her twenties and lived the remainder of her life in Utah. She lived with her mother until Bluford passed away in 1981. Sue and her mother were very close and with Sue’s recent passing there is a great loss of stories and history of the Hayes and Ogles family.

Sue was a gifted artist. Many of her paintings hang in her home. She used her artistic abilities during the many years she worked at Walker Design Monuments, with Kenneth Giessing. She designed beautiful monuments for customers, friends and family.
Sue had a special love for small children and doted on her cousins' and friends’ children and grandchildren. Sue loved the years she was able to care for George, Brooke and Becky. She frequently shared stories of them and loved them like family.
Sue was an enthusiastic sports fan, loved politics and knew numerous facts about movies and celebrities. She had an amazing memory and could give very precise details about sports records, historic games, and lives of celebrities and politicians. She always enjoyed a vigorous political conversation.

Suzanne leaves behind loving friends and family, including her dear friends Gerri and Mike McDonald and their children Rebecca, Brooke, and George; the Porter family; the Jacobsen family; and her many first cousins once removed, the children of Dan Jr., Charles and Richard Ogles: Alan Ogles, Daniel K. Ogles III, Mark Ogles, Jeannie Scavo, Benjamin McKay Ogles, Elizabeth Sheranian, Wasel Amelia Lambert, Charles Callis Ogles, David Washburn Ogles, Martha Mogene Bodily, Anne Rumfield, Georgia Ogles, Alvin Kimball Ogles, Tom Ogles, and Tina Marie “Kima” Lonewolf.
She was preceded in death by her father Ferrel, mother Bluford, Aunt Mogene, Uncle Roy, first cousins Dan Jr., Charles, and Richard, and first cousins once removed Mary and Paul. The funeral will be located at Larkin Mortuary, 260 E South Temple St., SLC, UT 84111. The funeral services will be April 15, 2023 at 11:00 AM, with the interment immediately following at the Salt Lake City Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to www.LarkinMortuary.com/obituary.


Thank you to Sue's family for this lovely tribute to her and for all the care she was shown, particularly in her final days. I'm also grateful to the nurses who helped her over the past year.

Sue is like family to us and will be forever missed. She cared for my siblings and me when we were little and was the rare kind of adult who knew how to really play! I have endless warm memories of card games, watching Muppet movies, and playing backyard baseball. Sue showed that same love to my sons and shared many fun moments teaching them silly hand tricks and gifting them toys.

She enjoyed talking about current events and I will always remember her passion for history, democracy, and justice. She was very secretive about her age and received dozens of 29th birthday cards as a result. It almost feels wrong to know her true age!

Sue was a caring neighbor to many and Bryan Ave will never be the same. You did a good job Sue, thank you for all your love and encouragement. Love you Sue'y.

What to say about my best pal Sue… she was the best painter, babysitter, neighbor, and friend that I have ever known. She cared so much for others and always made me feel special. I have known Sue my entire life. Things won’t be the same without her. She was one of a kind. I will always love and cherish my memories with Sue. Thank you to her family, neighbors, friends, and others for taking such great care of her. We will love and miss you Sue.

I was so saddened to learn that my friend Suzanne and I won't have any more of our Wednesday phone calls. We talked about so many things, and as this beautiful tribute says, she knew DETAILS! So talented and interesting...a wonderful woman. I'm so grateful to have known her. She enriched my life and I'll never forget her. My deepest condolences to her family, who she always spoke about with such love.
