Sue was born on 27 February 1951, in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah, to Alva Harrison Tippetts and Mary Woneighta (Bryant) Tippetts. She was named Seven Susan Evalyna Tippetts by her father. She spent all her years growing up in Salt Lake City except 1 year spent in Gresham, Oregon, when the family lived there. She also spent 1 year living in Boise, Idaho, with her oldest sister, Zoe Ella. During her earliest years, the family lived in town on what was then called Third West and Fourth North. A year or two after moving back to Salt Lake City from Oregon the family moved to what they called the farm on North Redwood Road. She lived there until she married.
Sue died at the University of Utah Medical Center on 31 May 2021, surrounded by her family.
She was married to her husband, Russell Leroy Ware on 29 January 1968 in Salt Lake City, Utah. They were sealed for time and all eternity on 4 March 1969 in Logan Utah Temple.
Sue spent the majority of her adult years rearing her five children, Susan Evalyn, Russell Leroy Jr., Shellie Anne, Ruth Maxine and David Allen. She also worked part time at K-Mart in Idaho Falls, Idaho and North Salt Lake, Utah. In 1994, she started working as a reservationist for Holiday Inn for 24 ½ years until retiring in 2019.
Her greatest joy in life came from the time she spent with her children and grandchildren as well as her years of service in the Salt Lake City Temple and her local ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
She was preceded in death by her parents, 2 brothers and 2 sisters. She is survived by her husband, 5 children, numerous grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, 1 brother and 2 sisters.
