Suzan Woodward Dalton, 1956-2019

Suzan Woodward Dalton

Suzan Edna Woodward Dalton, daughter of Woody (L.H.) and Ann Woodward, passed peacefully on June 1, 2019 at the age of 62.

She was born in Moab on Dec. 20, 1956, and graduated from CEU with honors in 1976, and then USU in 1978 with a degree in Arts Education. She married the love of her life, Pug (Kevin) Dalton, twice. It was the best love story.

Suzi was so sweet and thoughtful, and she was a fiercely creative force in the world. She impacted and shaped so many in her life, and will always be remembered for her generosity and artistry. She wanted everyone to remember how “fun and funny” she was. We will.

She loved sewing, cross-stitching, driving across the country on adventures, playing with her grandchildren, talking to her daughters and friends, laughing and joking with Pug, going to the mountains, watching sunsets, making pots, and staying in little old hotels with character.

After teaching art for years in Utah and then Nevada, she was able to start making pots full time when she moved to Arizona. There are many who treasure the inspiration and encouragement she provided as a teacher and who cherish the work she left behind.

Her mom, Ann; dad, Woody; and her brothers, Max and Bugsy, preceded her in death.

She is survived by her husband, Pug Dalton; her daughter, Danielle; and grandchildren, Dominic, Matteo and Chiara of Kayesville; her daughter, Annie; and granddaughter, Delilah, of Moab; and her daughter, Macey and granddaughter, Aylah, of Moab; and her sister, Leslie Ann Woodward.

A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 6, 2019 at the Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Moab.

The world is less now, less pretty, less sweet, less kind, less…
