Our beloved, wife, mother, grandmother, and best friend Susan Lorraine (Christensen) Martin of Ferron, Utah passed away on Thursday June 4th, 2020 surrounded by family. She was born on June 30, 1953 to Aaron and Edith Beckstead in Cottonwood, Utah.

Susan was an avid lover of Disney and loved to travel. She had a contagious smile that carried on through life and warmed every room she walked into. She loved her family and friends to no end and would always welcome anyone with open arms and a warm hug. Susan spent a lot of her time appreciating nature and animals, she had a deep love for spending time in her back yard near her pond, admiring the hummingbirds. She met the love of her life, Bill, in Ferron, Utah; where they spent their golden years together. They would often spend their time fishing, gardening, and exploring the local scenery. Susan spent many years working for the Salt Lake County library system and loved to spend time reading and puzzling. She will be greatly missed by all.

Preceded in death by her parents and brothers, Aaron Beckstead and David Beckstead.

Susan is survived by: husband, William Martin; four children, Douglas (Angela) Christensen, Timothy (Jennifer) Christensen, Jenny (Billy) Johnson, and Laura (Michael) Russell; the father of her children, Douglas (Linda) Christensen; step-children, William Jr. (Tracey) Martin and Jason (Susan) Martin; 17 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren; and brother, Jack Beckstead; all of whom she loved (and who love her) dearly.

I'm so very sad. What a sweet.lady. I met her when her and Bill got married. She was so good for him. They seemed like the perfect fit. She will be so missed. Hugs to her family.

Oh you guys, we’re so sorry to hear about this and we love you all so much. She was such sweet, sparkling woman. Every time I saw her, she just lit up. There are lots of good memories of the old days in Riverton. We hope your memories of her will bring you all peace and solace. Take care, love you some more.

We met Susan when she became my nephew (Billy)'s Mother in Law. My first impression of her was how sweet and kind she was and so welcoming. We are blessed that she gave birth to our sweet Niece Jenny who joined our family. We would have loved to spend more time with her. We are thankful for the knowledge that we will be able to do so through the eternities. May the Lord's atonement bring peace and comfort to the family until we meet again. Love, Reena Calton Price.
