STERNS – Mary Suzanne (nee Stouffer)

December 28, 1930 – April 4, 2011

Sue passed away peacefully at the Foothills Country Hospice at 80 years of age. She leaves to remember her with never ending love and happiness, her daughter Cindy (Kevin) and grandsons Aaron, Matthew and Tanner Rakochey; her son Larry and grandson Jack; and her son Cam (Hallie) and grandsons Evan and Ryder and granddaughter Harlo.

“You can shed tears that I am gone, or you can smile because I have lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that I’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all I have left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see me, or you can be full of the love we shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember me only that I am gone, or you can cherish my memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what I would want…
Smile, be happy and move on.
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”

We want to extend our undying gratitude to the amazing staff and volunteers at the Foothills Country Hospice for the exceptional care Mom received on her journey.

In living memory of Sue Sterns, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.

She kept us laughing ‘till the end…
