Our beloved wife and mother, Sue Ellen Williams Davis, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loved ones on August 3, 2023, in Cedar City, Utah, of pancreatic cancer. She was 68 years old. \n\nSue Ellen was born on September 24, 1954, in Cedar City, Utah, to Dr. Rymal G. Williams and Isobel Finlinson Williams. She was the 5th of 6 children born to Rymal and Isobel.\n\nSue grew up in Cedar City, Utah. She had a wonderful, carefree childhood. She loved to swim at the college pool down the street, ride her bike, and be with her friends. One day her father told Sue her motto was, “fun, fun, fun.” After she grew up and had 4 toddlers in tow, she told her dad she was glad that she’d had so much fun! \n\nSue attended Cedar City schools and graduated from Cedar High School in 1972. She met Paul Norman Davis in high school and preferred him to the school preference ball. That began a wonderful courtship, and they were sealed in the St. George temple November 30, 1973. She loved their story, and shared how they met over and over to her grandkids. Paul and Sue would have celebrated 50 years of marriage this November. \n\nSue attended Southern Utah State College and later Evans Hairstyling College. She enjoyed doing hair for over 30 years. She gained many lifelong friends in her profession. In fact, she never really retired, as she continued to do house calls, hair at her home, and hair at the mortuary up until her cancer diagnosis a month ago.\n\nSue and Paul have 4 daughters, and Sue took great joy in being a wife and mother. She loved having girls, and could be found late at night at the sewing machine, sewing Christmas and Easter dresses, and even made cabbage patch dolls for them one year. \n\nSue had 14 grandchildren, and loved being a grandma. She was a comfort and strength to all of her grandchildren. She attended every ball game, orchestra or choir concert, primary program, and school event she could, and even taught several grandchildren to drive! \n\nSue excelled at everything she did. She enjoyed tying quilts for her daughters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and just about everyone else, including making nearly 20 baby quilts for Primary Children’s Medical Center one year. She was also an excellent cook and baker, and made everything from scratch. Her home was a gathering place, and Sunday dinners were amazing. Everyone loved her hot rolls, cream of potato soup, and many other wonderful dishes. Mom’s home was a safe haven from the storms of life. She’d greet whoever came with a warm smile and twinkle in her eye and ask if they were hungry!\n\nSue’s main focus in life was serving others, be it family, friends, or strangers. She was a dedicated daughter, providing care to her parents in their older years. She dropped everything to help others when they needed it. She had the ability to see others as Christ did, and had a desire to meet their needs. Sue was a “people person” and loved to converse with anyone and everyone! She was often the last person in the room as she was busy talking. \n\nSue was a dedicated member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and held leadership callings in every organization throughout her life. She had a strong testimony of the plan of salvation, and she enjoyed spending many hours in the temple with her husband.\n\nSue was practical and down-to-Earth. She loved the simple beauties of life. Some of her favorites were the fall leaves, listening to the birds sing, and spending time at her family cabin on Kanarra Mountain. Her family was her greatest treasure. Her warm, welcoming presence will be greatly missed.\n\nSue Ellen is survived by her husband, Paul, as well as her 4 daughters, Miranda (Darren), Andrea (Spencer), Bethany, and Emily, 14 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Cynthia Dunaway, and brother, Roland Williams, and many loving nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, and three brothers, Roger, Tracey, and Merrill Williams.\n\nFuneral services will be on Saturday, August 12, at 11:00 am at the Cedar City 4th ward building at 500 West 400 North, Cedar City, UT. There will also be a viewing at the Cedar City 4th ward building that morning from 9:00-10:30 a.m. Interment will be in the Cedar City Cemetery under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary.
