She was predeceased by her father James Smith of Saint John, NB, and father-in-law John Poplar of River Herbert, NS.

Susan’s family will hold a Celebration of her Life and Interment in New Brunswick at a later date. Please forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Maxie would like to thank the members of the Calgary Co-Op, Cronkhite Supply, and Nicholson Sales for their kindness. Susan will be sadly missed!  In living memory of Susan Poplar, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Eastside Memorial Chapel, 5388 MEMORIAL DRIVE N.E.
