Susan is one of the most giving, loving and dedicated women I've ever had the esteemed pleasure to know. I was lucky enough to learn countless life lessons with you, push boundaries, simply be in the presence of ..on top of being blessed to call you my Auntie. Not only family and friends received everything special about you...but you dedicated much of your life to helping those that never even knew you were such a driving force in the community...and reaping benefits you fought to have actualized. You are loved, will be forever loved and I pray you rest peacefully with those here missing you and with your parents and Our Lord above. All my heart Auntie, Chrissy

We will remember Sue for her wonderful sense of humour and her infectious laugh. She always showed a genuine interest in her Canadian relatives and in their well being. She was so fortunate to have a loving husband, Leigh and two wonderful and supportive boys, Ross and Douglas, who with their wives, Karen and Melinda made sure she was well cared for and comfortable. Susan will be missed. Tom and Trudy Duff
