Susan McIntosh

January 20, 1942 — May 23, 2024

Susan McIntosh, devoted and beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend passed away on May 23, 2024 at her home in Highland, Utah. She was 82 years old.

She was born on January 20, 1942 in Portland, Oregon to Ray Orr Shurtliff and Burnetta Bell Watson Shurtliff. She married her high school sweetheart, Robert Keith McIntosh, on December 13, 1963 in the Salt Lake Temple. They were happily married for 60 years.

Susan was blessed with a beautiful crystal-clear soprano voice which she used to inspire people at church services and at civic events throughout her life. One of her favorite songs was “Mary’s Lullaby”.

She was an avid reader. Her favorite book was The Book of Mormon, followed by Agatha Christie’s mystery novels and plays. She was curious and loved to travel and study different cultures. Susan was a talented quilter, interior decorator, cook and gardener. She brought beauty, goodness, joy, and laughter into the lives of all who knew her.

She served in many callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She especially enjoyed being with the youth and supporting her husband in his many leadership callings. Susan and Bob were called to four senior missions. They were in India, the West Indies, the Santa Barbara Institute of Religion, and in Denver, Colorado to assist those with various addictions.

Susan lived for her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren by focusing on loving and serving them and living a Christ-like life. Through the years, she suffered serious health issues as well as other challenges of mortality. Her faith never wavered as she completely trusted in the Lord (and in His timetable) for His comfort, peace, guidance, healing, and eventually, for the timing of her death.

Susan is survived by her husband, Bob, and their 5 children: Rob (Marie) McIntosh, David (Bronwyn) McIntosh, Michelle McIntosh Lukes, Deborah McIntosh (Greg) Boden, and Nathan McIntosh; 27 grandchildren; 14 great- grandchildren; and her sister, Burnadell Shurtliff (William) Nelson.

She was preceded in death by her parents: Ray and Burnetta Shurtliff; her brothers, George and Michael Shurtliff; and her granddaughter, Paris Elizabeth Lukes.

Susan’s funeral service will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. in the Highland First Ward chapel located at 9623 N 6050 W., Highland Utah. Burial will follow at the Highland Cemetery located at 6200 W 1100 N, Highland, UT.
