  • Suzanne Andrus Jensen was born on July 26, 1947, to Laron and Coralee Andrus in Boulder City, Nevada. She lost her fight to cervical cancer on September 19, 2020, as her loving family surrounded her and held her hands at home in Sandy, Utah. Suzanne, Suz, Suzie, Snoozie, Flash, Mom was all about family and she had many names as terms of endearment because of it. She came by it honestly, as the second of six children in a military family that spent their early years in Texas, Japan, Wyoming, and New Mexico. She finally landed in Utah where she chose to put down roots for the long haul. At the tender age of 23, while attending BYU she was swept off her feet by her future husband Dave Jensen. They were fortunate to celebrate 50 years of marriage on February 28, 2020. During their marriage, she supported Dave in his 30 year career with the Sandy City Fire Department. Next to Dave, Suzie’s deepest joy came from their six children, and she took great pride in the fact that they all made it to adulthood. Her next loves were her beautiful grandchildren (and a couple of grand cats and dogs) who brought countless years of joy, laughter, and opportunities to shower them with thoughtful gifts, hugs, kisses, and her stories.

    Suzanne was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, who loved to sing in the choir, and serve in the primary, especially the nursery. We are convinced that she was put on this earth for the children. She could teach, nurture, and connect with children in a truly unique way. With her beautiful singing voice and her love for children, we cannot think of a more Christ-Like example.

    Suzanne is survived by her husband, David Jensen; her six children Jody (Tom) Jensen Plummer, Jason Jensen, Nate (Amy) Jensen, Nikol Jensen, Margo (David) Nelson, Michelle (Cameron) Rau; thirteen grandchildren, Chays, Ryan (Amy), Elyce, Morgan, Jacob, Samantha, John, Jennifer, Ben, Lucy, Kristena, Molly, June; siblings Marilee Hill, Craig (Julie) Andrus, Steven (Cathy) Andrus and Bob (Mary) Andrus. She was preceded in death by her parents Laron and Coralee Andrus, sister Kathryn Andrus Barnett, and brother-in-law Earl Hill.

    A visitation will be held on Thursday, September 24, 2020, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Larkin Sunset Gardens at 1950 E. Dimple Dell Road, Sandy, UT 84092. Private Service will be held for the family only. Burial will be at Larkin Sunset Gardens at 1950 E. Dimple Dell Road, Sandy, UT 84092. Memorial donations may be made to the Cancer Society or Primary Children’s Hospital in honor of Suzanne’s life. She was a good woman, good wife, good mom, good grandma, and a great person.


    I hope you find peace in this difficult time. Prayers, love and hugs to you all.

    Sorry to hear about your wife passing. Tom Hardcastle told me. I didn't know her but if she was like you , I am sure she was a great person. My time with you at the cannery was great and I miss those Days. I am said to see them going to close it. All our love to you and your family

    What a beautiful, gentle, kind soul. We will surely miss her beautiful face and the example she was to all of us. What a lucky family to have Suzanne as your mother. We are so saddened over her loss. Love always, Doug and Laurie Lesher

    We only knew Suzie a short time after moving into her neighborhood a couple years ago. However, her influence on our children will last a lifetime. She nurtured two of our children in the nursery over the past 2 years. The way she loved them brings tears to my eyes. We love you Suzanne and we are so grateful for you.

    We are saddened by the passing of Susie. We met her many years ago when Dave and I worked together at Sintrex Geophysics. Susie was a joy to be around when camping or BBQs and other events.....God Bless Susie, Dave and their family.
