Morgan, UT – Suzanne (Sue) Allen Brooks, 80, passed away with a smile on her face in her home on December 25, 2022. She was born in Ogden, Utah, on October 26, 1942, to Gale and Nell Allen. Hers was the honor of growing up in the small community of Milton, Utah.
Sue attended school in Morgan and graduated from Morgan High School in 1960. While in school she was a cheerleader, danced with the drill team, and was involved in student government as the secretary. She made it a personal goal to share a compliment every day to someone, which led to her being a friend to all.
One year later, on May 4, 1961, Sue married Marlin Brooks from Henefer, Utah. Their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. They became the parents of six children and had the privilege of raising their family one block from her childhood home in Milton.
Sue became a mail carrier for the Postal Service in 1972, where she delivered both letters and love to residents of Morgan County for 30 years. The result of her service was countless lifelong friendships with people who benefited from her friendly smile and wave as she drove by their home.
At a young age, Sue came to know the Savior, Jesus Christ, and was a devoted disciple to Him. She made it a lifelong habit to read of the life of Christ from the writings of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. She invited everyone she knew to do the same. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was called on often to work with and speak to the youth of the Church. She was an avid teacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ and enjoyed many callings, including serving as the president of the Young Women’s organizations at both the ward and stake level. She cherished her time spent attending the temple frequently with Marlin, family, and friends.
Sue will be remembered for her genuine love and smile, along with making Halloween sugar cookies, piñatas, working in her flower garden, mowing the lawn on her riding lawn mower, delivering meals and fudge to those in need, and supporting her children and grandchildren at the numerous events they were involved in. She loved reading books, enjoying a good nap and gathering with her family, especially at her weekly Sunday dinners with her children and grandchildren.
Sue was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband, Marlin, her six children, Gary (Carol), Scott (SaRene), Alan (Teresa), Nancy Pierce (Jerry), Chet (Andrea), Bart (Brooke), and her four siblings Kim Allen (Jeanne), Nedra Richins (Greg), Kent Allen (Susan), and Bret Allen. Sue was the proud grandma of 28 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank everyone for their thoughtfulness and support.
Memorial Services will be held on Saturday, December 31, at 11:00 AM. Family will meet friends on Friday, December 30 from 6:00-8:00 PM and prior to the service 9:30-10:30 AM.
