March 24, 1951 – November 27, 2012
Susan passed away peacefully as she succumbed to cancer after a lengthy 4 year battle.
Susan lived for all her grandkids. She always wanted them to experience the way that she lived, full out and non-stop. She spent many years volunteering at the Thorncliffe/Greenview Community Center in both children’s and adult programs. She made many life long friends and for that she was always grateful. She was always an artist who loved to experiment with all types of media to create some of the most unique pieces ever seen. She was willing to try anything to see if it could be done even though the traditionalists said it couldn’t be.
Susan is survived by her partner of 15 years Cyril ; children Sandra and Kris (Karen); grandchildren Taylor, Rachel, Wyatt, Autumn, Ari, Caitlin and Liam; siblings April (Al) of Winnipeg, MB, Albert (Gill) of Nanaimo, BC, and Patricia of Winnipeg, MB; as well as her nieces and nephews and their families.
A Private Family Funeral Service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells. A Celebration of Susan’s Life will be held at The Thorncliffe/Greenview Community Center (5600 Centre Street North) on Friday, November 30, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
