Inez Sue Tueller Edwards, 75, our loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on May 5th, 2022 in her Draper, Utah home.
Sue was born December 4th, 1946 in Brigham City, Utah, to Donald and Norma Tueller. Sue grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho and graduated from Idaho Falls High School in1965. While in high school, Sue met Rich Edwards and soon after high school they were married on August 21st, 1965. Rich and Sue were later sealed in the Jordan River Temple on February 14th, 1998. Rich and Sue have 3 loving children: Heidi Sue, Amy Lea, Richard Brady, 13 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren.
Sue worked in the fashion industry for many years working at Castleton’s, ZCMI and Nordstrom - which is no surprise given that Sue was always known for her sense of style. Sue also worked many years at Equitable Life and Casualty. Sue would instantly connect with those she met, making friends wherever she went. Sue had a true gift for making all those she encountered feel loved and special Throughout her life Sue made an impact on others with her kind heart and endearing personality, making countless life-long friends along the way.
Sue was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and had an unwavering testimony of the gospel. Sue’s love of the Lord was evident in her lifelong example of selfless service, devotion, and unconditional love. Sue epitomized Christ-like love. Sue served faithfully in many callings within the church but her greatest calling in life was that of motherhood and she lived for her grandchildren.
Sue was always drawn to children, and they were always drawn to her. It was not only her tender heart, bright eyes and magnetic smile but also her big purse of treats that drew them in. Sue was fondly called ‘Grandma Sue’ by most everyone she knew both young and old.
As much as Sue loved her friends and those she met, she loved Rich and her kids and grandkids even more. She loved fiercely and unconditionally. Sue’s top priority was always her family and she was intensely loyal to them. Sue rarely missed an opportunity to support and cheer on her kids or grandchildren. In Sue’s mind, her grandkids could do no wrong and she found time to support them in all their endeavors. Sue was equally adored by her family. Everyone loved spending time with Grandma Sue. Sue spent an unmeasurable amount of time attending various sporting events, dance recitals, banquets, and competitions, as well as always finding time to spend individual time with each grandchild.
Sue’s memory and legacy will live on as we strive each day to be a little more like Grandma Sue.

So sorry to hear about Sue’s passing, she was a great lady!
I was so sad to hear about Sue. I pray Heavenly Father will be with you and comfort you at this difficult time. It brings me comfort knowing she’s with her mom, dad, Bob, and with my dad, mom and Tana and our other aunts and uncles and cousins. But it’s sooo hard for the loved ones left behind. I love remembering the times when we’d come to visit Uncle Don, Aunt Norma and my cousins, and when you’d visit us! I loved those times; and when all the Tueller families would get together. Such wonderful memories!
I remember being in Sandy shopping one day and a car drove up by us and it was Sue with a big smile on her face! It was so good to see her and we got to visit for a bit.
It comforts me to know I’ll see her again one day. Thoughts and prayers to your family. Love you all
Amy, I'm so sorry about your mother. I hope everything goes smoothly for you and that you feel much peace. 🙏 I'm sorry i cannot come to the funeral. Miss you!
Sending thoughts and prayers to your family at this sacred time.
I love you Sue and I will miss you to the end. Get things ready for me and I will be along. You are a beautiful princess and will miss you like crazy. RIP!!!
A fun little story is that, for years, I would take the kids' Christmas presents to her house to keep there until the "big morning." Sue and I would spend time wrapping them together while we talked and laughed (boy could she wrap a gift and make it look like beautiful!)
How we all loved Sister Sue! (As my children affectionately called her.) I met Sue after my 12-year old son came home one day and told me how much he loved collecting fast offerings from "this lady" on his route. She'd always give the boys a fresh cookie when they rang her doorbell. This continued for decades as she brought countless plates of cookies to my children with each, almost weekly, drop-in visit to us. My 7 children always got loved up when she came through the door-the. They adored her! They all loved how wonderful she always smelled (Sue was a perfume connoisseur) and the fun earrings she'd wear. Sue was the most adorable, loving, loyal friend. I, my husband and our children all knew we were cherished by her.
Sue was the one friend I called and asked to be with me when my husband passed away, which speaks for itself.
I could go on and on about this beautiful, dear friend. I will forever love my dear friend, Sister Sue.
My sincere condolences 💐 for the loss of your dear sweet Sue. 🌷
I loved 💘 working with her at Equitable Life and Casualty Ins. Company. She was such a lovely lady and so caring and compassionate. She was also very comical 😂 and made working with her lots of fun. She created a beautiful family. May the good Lord bring the family peace and comfort during this difficult time! Blessings! 💘🙏🏻💘
I still remember today the day I bought some new shoes from Sue at Nordstrom. I was so happy and I felt so cool that my cousin helped me with such a good looking pair of shoes and an amazing discount. It was probably only 10%, but I felt special. My love to your family and may the Lord bless you dear Sue. What a sweet smiling cousin.
