Obituary for Susan Elizabeth Tackett

Susan Elizabeth Tackett, age 79, of Knoxville, formerly of Palm Desert, California passed away Thursday evening, January 4, 2018.

Sue was born in Park Ridge, Illinois and grew up in the Chicago area. She was a proud graduate of Northern Illinois University and was an educator for many years. Sue moved to Southern CA where she lived for 30+ years where she enjoyed raising her family, playing golf and loved the warmer climate. She and husband, James Tackett, relocated to Knoxville, TN in 2005 to be closer to family. Sue thrived in her circle of friends from Fox Den Country Club and First Farragut United Methodist Church where she was an active choir member and volunteer. Sue’s spirit and positive outlook made her a genuine pleasure to be around and her sense of humor and wit will be missed by everyone that knew her.

Sue is preceded in death by her husband, James M. Tackett.

Survived by son and daughter-in-law, Stephen and Kelley Murray, and grandchildren Tyler, Madison and Tristan; step-son, Michael Tackett, wife Judy; step-daughters Cheryl Marsala, and Stephanie Bonifazi. Special thanks to Sue’s dear friend Terry Finnell and family for many happy years and memories.

The family will receive friends from 2 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, January 7th at First Farragut United Methodist Church with a Celebration of Life to follow at 3 p.m. with Rev. Don Thomas officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to First Farragut United Methodist Church Choir, 12733 Kingston Pike, Farragut, TN 37934.
