Suellen Powell Swink, 83, finally found her way to her sweetheart, Ferral Jay, on Thursday, February 23, 2023.\n\nSuellen was born March 18, 1939, to adoring parents, Clark and Edna Robertson Powell. As a child she served and adored her grandparents. She loved her brothers Clarkie and Pat, and her sweet sister Janet. Sue graduated from Carbon High School and went on to become a Registered Nurse in 1962 from the School of Nursing at St. Marks Hospital. Suellen worked as a Registered Nurse for over 25 years at Cottonwood Hospital. \n\nSuellen married her eternal companion Ferral Jay Swink, on July 29, 1963. They were sealed in the Manti Temple on May 23, 1964. They had a large family, which she loved unconditionally and dedicated her life to. She encouraged her children in their education, both secular and spiritual. She cheered on their talents and complimented any successes they achieved. She was a wise, patient, and talented mother. Suellen loved music and provided opportunities for her children to learn to play the piano and various instruments. Music was a constant in her life.\n\nSuellen was an outstanding homemaker. Her immaculate home was warmed by furniture she and Ferral restored, flowers she arranged, antiques she collected, and smells of her delicious homemade meals.\n\nSuellen was also a talented writer, preferring to pen her thoughts through stories and poetry. Her writings captured the adventures of life, the love she had for her family, and her firm faith in Jesus Christ.\n\nSuellen was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and served in many callings as well as missionary service with her husband. She was a wonderful visiting teacher, neighbor, and friend. She believed deeply in connecting to her Heavenly Father through daily prayer. She was known for her dedication to her Christian faith, ability to effectively teach gospel principles, and delivering delicious baked goods to neighbors.\n\nSuellen valiantly and gracefully fought her way through the heart-aching phases of Vascular and Alzheimer’s Dementia. Although this disease slowly took away her memory and function, so many of her core characteristics remained. She was always so full of gratitude, love of life, and love of her fellowman which she would express with sincerity through a smile, a “thank you”, or a simple, “I love you.” Sue’s spunky heart won the affection of many at The Abbington Memory Care Center where she lived for the last 15 months. Her love of music stayed with her and became her signature characteristic with her singing, dancing, and hand tapping.\n\nWe will be forever grateful for the love and dedication from family, The Abbington Memory Care, and Bristol Hospice who cared for Suellen.\n\nSuellen was preceded in death by her husband, Ferral Jay Swink, son Jared Jay Swink, parents Clark and Edna Powell, siblings Patrick Powell, Janet (Dave) Jones, and Clark Powell Jr.\n\nSuellen and her contagious laugh will be dearly missed by her surviving children Torey Swink, James (Keri) Swink, Samuel Swink, Rebecca (Chris) Duke, Debra (Jason) Low, Eric (Marieke) Swink, Philip (Nichole) Swink, and 20 adored grandchildren.\n\nFuneral Services will be held Friday, March 3, 2023, 11:00 am at Jenkins-Soffe South Valley, 1007 W. South Jordan Parkway (10600 S.) South Jordan, Utah. There will be a viewing prior to the services from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Viewing Thursday evening 6-8 p.m. at the same location.
