Two years after their marriage while on a cruise, the Prince took ill and suddenly died. Susanna in her usually manner, had his body taken off the ship at the next port, planning to collect it on her way back, and continued her voyage. When the Russian nationals heard about his death, they ordered a royal burial at sea.
After globe trotting for thirty five years she returned to Salt Lake City and checked into the Hotel Utah as Her Royal Highness Princess Engalitcheff.. On Aug 4, 1942 Susanna Emery Holmes Delitch Engalitcheff passed away and was buried at Salt Lake City's Mt. Olivet Cemetery next to her first husband, Albion Emery.
If a woman in today's world lost two husband's people would notice. If she lost three there would be questions. But if she lost four, there would be a full blown investigation. Either Susie had the worst luck in the world with men or maybe, just maybe there is more to the story that we shall never know.
I hope you have enjoyed our story of the Silver Queen and will be bringing you more in The History of Park City on our next blog.
