Sue Betty Eden

On the peaceful evening of January 27, 2016, we lost our sweet mom and grandmother, Sue Betty Eden.

She was born October 2, 1916 in Channing, Texas to Edna and Charlie Brown and lived much of her life in Cottonwood, Arizona.

She was preceded by two husbands, Lyman Betty and Cody Eden, and two grandchildren, Kelly and Wayne Richards. She is survived by two daughters and their husbands; Gwen and Barney Richards of Tucson Arizona and Judy and Bob Backus of Cottonwood, Arizona.

She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother of eight, and great-grandmother of eighteen. Sue was beloved by all, and we will remember her infectious love for life, family and friends.

Services for Sue will be held on Saturday, February 6th, at Westcott Funeral Home in Cottonwood. Visitation starts at 10:00 am with the service following at 11:00 am.
