Susan Kay Huggins, daughter of Harold Glen Huggins and Helen Louise Dunlap, was born November 15, 1948, in Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa, and departed this life May 16, 2004, at the age of 55 years, 6 months and 3 days after a valiant 6 year fight with cancer. “Susie Bell” as she was fondly called during much of her married life spent her childhood and early years growing up in Maxwell, Iowa where she graduated from high school in 1967. On May 20, 1967, she was united in marriage at the Methodist Church in Maxwell to Wayne Lee Bell. Wayne, son of Melvin Carl Bell and Helen Virginia DeMoss was also a local resident. To this union were born three children, Jason Wayne on October 3, 1970, Jenny Kay on November 2, 1973 and Rebecca Katherine on August 28, 1975. Susie and Wayne spent their first 10 years in Colorado, New York, Texas and Iowa. Then in 1977 they returned to Texas where they have lived ever since. In 1969 the couple joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on August 12, 1970. Since joining the LDS Church, Susie has remained a faithful member fulfilling many callings in Relief Society, Young Women and Primary. Her life however revolved around Wayne, her children and grandchildren. She leaves to mourn her passing, her husband Wayne of Anna, Texas; son Jason and wife Allyson Suzanne Turville and grandchildren Emma Ann and Joshua Glen of McKinney, Texas; Jenny and Phillip Shawn Eastham and grandchildren Cody Michael, Sydney Kay and Corey Wayne of Anna, Texas; Becky and David Stephen Duke Jr. of Anna, Texas; and two brothers, Thomas Huggins of Shelbyville, Kentucky and Donald Huggins of Lawrence, Kansas.
