Susan H Eichelberger, 69, passed away on Monday, February 15, 2021. She passed away from complications of Alzheimer’s. Susan was born February 11, 1952, in Tacoma, Washington to Darline and George Eichelberger, Sr.
She graduated from South High School in 1970. Susan participated in the Palmyra LDS pageant. Susan faithfully served a full-time mission in the New England states mission. She worked at LDS Hospital as an LPN, as a primary care nurse on the OB floor for a couple of years while attending Weber College, where she graduated as an RN and kept working at LDS Hospital on the OB floor. Susan found her passion in nursing with Labor and Delivery and worked at LDS Hospital Labor and Delivery from 1987-1994, where she delivered and cared for countless newborns and made a lasting impact on their families. Later, Susan worked at LDS Hospital Endoscopy and as Head nurse at Primary Children’s Endoscopy before she retired. She was loved by all her patients and treated them like family.
She is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many callings. Susan had a very giving heart and loved to make others happy. She would frequently bring homemade cookies to her coworkers, treat a friend to lunch, or open her home to numerous friends and family. Susan had many talents and was always willing to make a wedding cake, take wedding/blessing/family pictures, quilt blankets, and crochet receiving blankets for every new arrival.
Susan loved dogs and was the proud mom to three fur babies, Molly, Zoey, and Isabella. Susan was the favorite sister to her three brothers - though, she says it’s because she was the only sister. She loved her friends, and they would quickly become family. Susan especially loved her friend, Barbara “Barb” Robertson Hooper. They became lifelong friends after serving their missions together and often said Barbara is the sister she never had.
Susan is survived by her brothers Roy (Bonnie) Eichelberger, George Eichelberger, and David (Sherri) Eichelberger.
