Susan (Suzie) Eileen Day Caywood

December 31, 1955 - September 19, 2020

Suzie passed away suddenly on September 19th at her home in Taylorsville, she was 64 years old. Suzie was born in Havre, Montana on December 31, 1955 to Mike and Angie Fitz. The family moved to Salt Lake when she age 4. She grew up in Murray where she spent most of her formative years and graduated from Murray High in 1974. 

She married Mike Day in 1977 and they moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. They were married for 13 years and had 3 children together, Patrick, Kori and Sean. After she and Mike divorced, Suzie met Tony Caywood, they married and had a son Joshua. Tony and Suzie moved to Salt Lake Valley where she lived until she passed.

Suzie loved her family more than anything and always went “over the top” to make memories with them. Suzie had a big heart and was a passionate person. She was also the family “ xer” trying to keep us on her designated path. She loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping, shing and hunting with the boys whenever time permitted. She had a special love for animals of all kinds, especially dogs. When she was about 12, she came home on a “stray” horse one day and asked if she could keep it! 

Suzie is preceded in death by her momma Angie, who understood her the best and her two children, Patrick and Kori, who left this life way to young. She is survived by her boys Shawnie and Joshua, her “Pop’s” Mike Fitz of Murray whom she loved and her brothers, Terry Fitz of Murray and Kevin (Terrille) Fitz of Sandy. She is also survived by her grandchildren Dominic, Kira and Memphis Dawn. Auntie Suzie will be missed by her nephews and nieces whom she loved to tease and get them riled up to her delight. 

A celebration of Suzie’s life will be Thursday, October 8, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, Salt Lake City. 

“Suzie, our hearts are broken but our love and prayers remain”.
