Susan Hatch

April 10, 1944 — September 23, 2022

Bountiful, UT

Susan Hatch, beloved mother, grandmother, sister and friend, passed away at her home in Bountiful, surrounded by loved ones, after a long, courageous battle with cancer. Susan was born in Chester, England, on April 10th, 1944, to Beryl Mary Lisle Wheatley and Wilfrid Hampden Wheatley.

Susan’s family emigrated from England when she was a young child. They lived in Lethbridge, Canada, for several years, and later moved to Murray, Utah. Susan valued freedom, and receiving her United States citizenship was a great accomplishment in her life.

Susan graduated from East High School in 1962 and continued her education at Brigham Young University. She loved her time at BYU and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology. When she graduated, she began working for the State of Utah in the department of social services.

While working for the state of Utah, she met her husband, Robert W. Hatch. They were married in San Diego, California, on July 3rd, 1976. Robert brought his grown children and their families to the marriage. In 1982, Susan and Robert were blessed with their daughter, Jennifer, who was the light of their lives. Their family was sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on December 23rd, 2000.

Susan loved to help people. She had a gift for doing exactly what was needed at the right time. Her charitable nature made her more than willing to give whatever she had to help someone else. As a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she made lasting impressions on others while serving in the Bountiful Temple and in the Relief Society, Primary, and Young Women organizations. Susan was also a volunteer at LDS Hospital for many years, working at the information desk. She made wonderful friends during her many service experiences.

Susan enjoyed anything BYU, gardening, rodeos, and chocolate. She loved traveling with her family and friends. Her travels with Robert took her to the Caribbean, the Panama Canal, the Middle East, and Europe. Favorite family vacations included England; Branson, Missouri; and San Diego, California.

Susan is survived by her daughter Jennifer Leslie Sarahs (Carl) and their children, Madison, Cameron, Jameson and London; Robert’s sons, Robert Steven Hatch (Barbara), and Richard James Hatch (Julia) and their families; She is also survived by her siblings, Richard Wheatley (Vickee), Mary Evans (Max), Ann Gillen (Darrell), Sarah Dunn, and John Wheatley (Kathy).

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband Robert. Her family would like to thank Laura, Deana, and Shellee for their help in the final days of Susan’s life.
