Many of you have already heard of the tragic car accident that took Susan Madsen's life. We are so sad to have lost such a special, beautiful, gracious friend, mother, team manager, volunteer and wonderful person. She will be greatly missed. The Sparta family rallies behind her children and husband Jon. Susan and Jon's daughter, Tessa, was injured in the accident. She has had a couple of surgeries and has a long road ahead of her, but she will be ok. 

Susan Kay Madsen, 43, of Draper, UT died May 8, 2014 in a car accident. She is survived by her husband Jon Richard Madsen; two sons, Easton McCelland Madsen and Dax Richard Madsen; three daughters, Mia Elizabeth Madsen, Tessa Hope Madsen and Emery Brees Madsen. She is also survived by her parents Brian Joe and Lonnie Kay Brees, her sister Michele Lynn Brees, her In Laws, Richard and Maggie Madsen of Seattle, WA and her six Brother and Sister-in-Laws and twenty-one nieces and nephews. Susan was born in Bethesda, MD on July 27, 1970. She was sealed to Jon Madsen on August 19, 1994 in the Seattle Washington LDS Temple.

Susan was a graduate of BYU with a degree in History Teaching. Susan was active in the Corner Canyon 6th Ward, her children’s schools and PTAs, the Utah Youth Soccer Association, and the Sparta Soccer Club. She was a dedicated mother and wife, who always put others first and loved serving unconditionally.  Someone who was always willing to lend a helping hand and perhaps, more importantly, share a laugh.  Her services will be held at the Corner Canyon Stake Center, 13366 South 1300 East, at 11AM Monday May 19, 2014. The viewing is scheduled for 6-8 PM on Sunday May 18, 2014 at Larkin Sunset Gardens at 1950 East Dimple Dell Road (10600 South) Sandy, UT.  There will also be a viewing directly prior to her service at 9:45 AM.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to Utah Youth Soccer Association or to MADD.
