LIFE SKETCH OF SUSAN SARIAH JOHNSON ASAY Susan Sariah Johnson was born in Hillsdale, Utah, on November 29, 1880. She was the tenth child of Seth Johnson and Lydia Ann Smith Johnson. At the age of five, she moved with her father’s family to Georgetown, fifty miles southeast of Hillsdale, where she lived until she had grown to womanhood. It was here that she received her schooling as a student of her father and James B. Burrow. Her activities were similar to those of other children of her age, working at household tasks, helping to care for the family garden, carrying water from the creek, and doing many other odd duties about the house and farm. She spent much of her time in wandering over the hills near her home, which was situated amidst a magic blend of cedar and pine trees and brilliantly colored rocks. Susan gained a genuine knowledge and a keen appreciation of God’s handiwork during her life in this scenic wonderland. It was truly a fit place for the molding of such a noble life as she has lived. On August 13, 1898, she married Joseph Edward Asay, who departed for a mission in the Southwestern states on November 11th following their marriage. With the exception of one hundred dollars given to Susan’s husband when he left for his mission, she furnished all of the money necessary to finance him on his mission. This money she earned by working in a store, teaching school, and working at various other occupations. This she did for two and one half years, willingly, faithfully supporting her husband in his efforts to spread the Gospel among the people. In 1902, she and her husband moved to Lovell, Wyoming. They were among the first settlers to enter that region. The task of conquering the wilderness was a tremendous one, but their diligent efforts did not prove fruitless, and they eventually found themselves in possession of a home and some property. Besides her many domestic duties, Susan always found time for religious work, and she was chosen as teacher in the Sunday School and Primary at Lovell, in which capacity she served for five years. In 1907 she was called back to Cannonville, Utah by the serious illness of her mother. At that place her ability as a leader was again utilized, and she was chosen president of the Young Ladies’ Mutual Improvement Association. Her life has been characterized by a special ability and willingness to render service to others through the medium of religious activity. Wherever she has lived, she has always given freely of her talent in service to others. In 1921 Susan, with her husband and family moved to Price, Utah, where they have remained until the present time. (1933) Her church responsibilities in Price have consisted of serving as a teacher in the Relief Society for twelve years, and serving as a member of the Relief Society committee on caring for the dead, for seven years. There are numerous characteristics represented in Susan’s life which deserve special mention. She has been throughout her life a gentle, loving wife and mother, a capable, willing servant to others, and a diligent, tireless worker in every endeavor. Perhaps the outstanding characteristic reflected in her life is her implicit faith in he Great Creator and his power to help those who are sincere and prayerful. Her life has been one of toil, to help those who are in distress, hardship, and vicissitudes, and only faith such as hers could overcome the many obstacles which confronted her and her loved ones at various times. She tells of numerous occasions when through earnest, humble prayer, she has been able to avert harm or accident, or to secure food for her family. One incident of which she tells is particularly faith-promoting. One night, during the serious illness of one of her babies, the family were all asleep at their home in Price. All were sleeping soundly, when suddenly she was awakened by the sound of a voice crying “Mama! Mama!” She rushed to the bed of her sick child, but found that it was sleeping soundly, as were all the other children. Then came to her the intuition that something had happened or was about to happen to some member of her family who was not at home. Actuated by this warning perception, she spent the rest of the night in supplication, petitioning the Lord to spare her loved ones from harm. Two days later she received a letter from her son, Burns, in Wyoming, telling of an accident in which her younger son, Zane had been seriously injured, at the exact hour when she had heard the warning voice. This was one of the many manifestations of the power of her faith. Susan Sariah Johnson Asay is the mother of 11 children.

Life timeline of Susan Sariah Asay (Johnson)

Susan Sariah Asay (Johnson) was born on 29 Nov 1880
Susan Sariah Asay (Johnson) was 18 years old when Spanish–American War: The Treaty of Paris is signed, officially ending the conflict. The Spanish–American War was fought between the United States and Spain in 1898. Hostilities began in the aftermath of the internal explosion of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor in Cuba, leading to US intervention in the Cuban War of Independence. American acquisition of Spain's Pacific possessions led to its involvement in the Philippine Revolution and ultimately in the Philippine–American War.
Susan Sariah Asay (Johnson) was 23 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Susan Sariah Asay (Johnson) was 31 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
Susan Sariah Asay (Johnson) was 40 years old when The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage in America.

The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Susan Sariah Asay (Johnson) was 64 years old when World War II: The Allied invasion of Normandy—codenamed Operation Overlord—begins with the execution of Operation Neptune (commonly referred to as D-Day), the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The Allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.
Susan Sariah Asay (Johnson) was 75 years old when Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in Anaheim, California.

Opened on October 5, 1955, as a motor inn owned and operated by Jack Wrather under an agreement with Walt Disney, the hotel was the first to officially bear the Disney name. Under Wrather's ownership, the hotel underwent several expansions and renovations over the years before being acquired by Disney in 1988. The hotel was downsized to its present capacity in 1999 as part of the Disneyland Resort expansion.
