Few are those who can warm the hearts of so many, win the respect of a community and all who knew her, inspire with her kindness and humble with her humility. Suzie Stengel was one such person. She passed away on Monday, Aug. 18, 2014, in her home with her family by her side after a short fight with cancer.

Suzie was born April 20, 1946, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She traveled the world before moving to Moab with her husband, Tom, and daughters in 1989. It was here that for 13 years she worked her dream job at Nichols Expeditions. 

She is survived by her husband, Tom Stengel; daughters, Rebecca Stengel and Jamie Clausen; brother, KennCorwin Gardner; and sister, Barbara Gardner.

She will be greatly missed.

A memorial service, open to the public, will be held at St. Francis Episcopal Church in Moab at 11 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 22. We request that instead of flowers you donate to a charity of choice.
