Susan Rosalie Winder Mead, 79, passed away unexpectedly on Aug. 12, 2017. She was born to Wallace and Roxie Winder on Sept. 4, 1937 in Castle Gate, Utah.

Mead was preceded in death by her brother Charles Winder; her infant son Charles Mead; her husband Jerry Mead; her parents, Wallace and Roxie Winder; and her brother Grant Winder.

She is survived by her daughters, Belinda McKinnon (Bryan) of Moab, Utah, and Terry Gary (Clive) of Cheney, Washington. She leaves behind six grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and many beloved foster children.

Mead loved spending time with her family. She was an accomplished seamstress and enjoyed making quilts for family and friends. One of her greatest joys was tending her flower gardens. This is where she could often be found. She loved camping and the beauty of nature.

She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served faithfully in numerous callings throughout her life. She will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.
