Susan Rasmussen Bagley

Susan Elaine Rasmussen Bagley died at home at the age of 65 on November 13, 2017 after a brave struggle with kidney cancer.

Susan was born on January 19, 1952 in Los Angeles, California to Karl Marvin and Dorothy Hunter Rasmussen. She attended BYU where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design and Art History.  She settled in Salt Lake City, Utah after marrying Jack Ronald Bagley on September 17, 1975 in the Salt Lake Temple. They shared 42 wonderful years.

An active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Susan had a firm testimony of the gospel and enjoyed serving in the church especially the Young Women.  Two things that exemplify her life are love and service.  Susan’s legacy will be her sweet, tender, compassionate heart. She loved everyone she met and always made others feel loved and welcomed and found ways to serve those around her. She cherished her family and was happiest when her children and grandchildren were at her side. She had a rewarding life raising her family, traveling the world fostering her love for art, and laboring in the family restaurants.  Susan will be remembered for the creative Halloween costumes she made and the blankets she crocheted.  She was an exquisite cook and loved making elaborate meals for her friends and family. More than anything, Susan loved spending time with her family, playing bingo with grandchildren and creating perfect Mickey Mouse pancakes.

Susan is survived by her husband, Ron Bagley; children Amy (Nathaniel) Madsen, Ryan (Diana), Dallin (Betsy), Kara, Kate (Nicholas) Winther, and Lori (Charles) Putnam; sisters Jolene (John) Darrington and Kathy (Ron) Rodda; 15 grandchildren and many other family and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents, Karl Marvin Rasmussen and Dorothy Elaine Hunter.
