Jean BrownWords can not express the sadness I feel in the loss of my dear friend. Sue was such an amazing person - so full of life, fun to be around and so positive despite the pain she was going through. She fought a courageous battle against her deadly disease. She is now in peace. I will miss her but never forget her.
John KellyMy cousin Sue was my idol. Being the youngest of all my cousins I had the privilege of being coddled by my older cousins and siblings. But the one who always stood out the most was Sue. She was the prettiest, smartest, the most fun. She could always walk into the room with her swagger and command attention, however it was never in a boisterous manner, she could be noticed by being a listener or by being the one who had something to say or with her beauty. She had a real gift in knowing people and how to read people, an incredible gift. I will dearly miss my cousin Sue, she holds a special place in my heart.
Sharon & JerrySorry to hear of the death of cousin Susan. Had been in contact with her after her move to London but had not heard from her this past year. Thoughts & Prayers for all family & friends.
Gary & Judy BoormanOur thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Family at this difficult time. Sue was a very amazing lady. Always upbeat and ready for a fun time.

Her fight was outstanding and now she can rest in peace with no pain and be with her beloved husband Terry. God Bless. Our deepest Sympathy. Gary & Judy
Linda Sadlowski Class of 1969It is with sadness that I remember a dear class-mate, Sue, We attended St. Joseph's School of Nursing in Toronto, ON. Although not overly close we maintained the close bonds which Nursing School brings. I shall be having a Mass celebrated at St. Peter's Cathedral here in London. Eternal Rest Grant Unto her and let Perpetual Light Shine upon her. Linda Sadlowski
Donna and John GordonWe did not know Sue for long but what we saw and how she made us feel was so incredible. Smiling, positive, joyful and courageous. We know family members will hold this beautiful woman in all of your hearts and believe her love and light will shine through all of you. we too look forward to celebrating her life on Morrison Lake. Blessings
Mike & Colleen KellyOur dear cousin Sue will live on forever in our hearts through remembering her positive outlook and great laugh. While living with her family for a year, my cousin Paul and I kept her in stitches every day with some of the crazy antics we carried on with and in which she sometimes participated. She would start laughing and could not stop. Uncle Joe would laugh just as hard and Auntie Marg would be looking around to see what the three of us had done. Sue fought a courageous battle and she kept a very positive outlook because I am sure she wanted those around her to feel good. We hope that Sue's family can be comforted knowing that she was dearly loved by so many family and friends. Our condolences along with good thoughts and prayers to you all. Mike, Colleen & Family
Alison KellyAn Angel just got her wings! I will miss her positive energy, sunny disposition and her love of life. Good for her for trying to not let this cancer get her down (too much anyway) over the past ten years. When I think of the past year alone what adventures she went on despite of everything going on in her body, it amazes me. Her strength was so admirable. What fun she had and the joys she shared with her family! You can only admire a person like that! I will miss her terribly as so many others will but hope she is finally at rest and sharing big hugs with Terry. Alison xo

You will be dearly missed. Rest in peace. xox

Carol ChurmI was saddened to hear of Susan's passing. I had the good fortune to meet her for the first time on a cruise to Alaska, that our group was taking, in August 2016.

Pete and Sandy LeMoineWe are so sad to hear of Sues passing, she was a very special person. There could be long stretches between us getting together but Sue made it feel like it was just yesterday. Her larger-than-life smile lit up her eyes and ours! I have nice memories of many great coffee chats with Sue over the years when I was visiting Lipton Soup and then Nortel. We had lots of laughs with Sue in the old days at the regatta and more recently at Paul and Sues and at our place. We will miss her and our thoughts go out to her family and friends. Pete & Sandy

Ann Marie Dicks and familyOh how I will miss my sweet cousin Sue. Her courage and valiant effort to beat this horrible disease are nothing short of heroic. Sue, I will miss terribly our frequent phone conversations and summer visits to your adorable cottage where we happily reminisced about the good old days on Morrison Lake as well as at 8 Ashbourne... I will cherish those memories for all my days. Shawn and I were fortunate and grateful to be seated at the same table as You and Gordon at your son David's wedding this past September and we both marvelled at how beautiful and happy you were with Gordon by your side. Sue, your beauty and strength inside and out will be etched in our hearts and prayers forever. Our hearts and prayers are with your family at this very difficult time. With Love Ann Marie, Shawn Ryan, Michael and Lesley Ann (In Heaven)

Doug RobbShe was a vibrant spirit and will be missed by all at Magellan Aerospace. She was the kind of person you meet in life that you could depend on to be there for you. A nice person.
Kathy DonnellyI am very sad to hear that Sue has passed away. She was a beautiful caring person with a true love for life. We were very lucky to have her on our staff at Magellan Aerospace. My condolences to her entire family. God Bless.
Linda PitreI am so sorry to hear about Susan's passing. She was a lovely and kind person and I feel honoured to have known her. We worked together at Magellan Aerospace and I spent a little time with her outside of work when she lived in Rockwood. She will be missed by all who knew her. Her family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers.
Cathy Doyle-BuschkeWhat a wonderful beautiful lady-- she will be greatly missed by all on Morrison Lake. Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same. I will always remember her fabulous smile and her warm, friendly, and welcoming manner. My sympathies to her family.
Barb and Dean CastellanWe were so sad to hear of Sue's passing. Sue had such a genuine, kind hearted spirit and zest for life that we could all learn from. She always greeted us with a beautiful smile and warm embrace and has touched many in her path. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
Heather BillingsSad to learn of Sue passing. I can honestly say that I have never know such strength and strong will! When she was diagnosed with cancer sue was the Magellan Aerospace RN. She never missed a day of work throughout her chemo treatments. Even when she should have rested. Susan refused to let coworkers know about her illness. She was adamant to continue her work schedule. She shared stories of her children, Terry and her grandchildren whom she loved dearly! Each morning before our busy work day commenced I always checked in to the health unit to touch base with her. We always started the day with laughter and stories. Bless you Susan.
Steve, Ellie, Liz, Joe KellyWe all lost someone very special when Sue joined Terry. To some she was a mother, sister, cousin, patient or an acquaintance, but most of all she was a friend. We were lucky enough to have dinner with Sue and Gordon at the lake this past summer. I don't think any of us have laughed so hard in a long time. You know the laugh she had when it brought tears to your eyes. Sue was always concerned about others her whole like maybe that was why she picked the nursing profession. Her compassion will be greatly missed. I will miss her laugh and calling me Stevie. We have all lost a compassionate loving person but all gain a very special guardian angel to help us all. Our prayers are with all of Sue's family.
Brenda MangerSorry to hear about the passing of Susan. We also had a lot of laughs at Magellan and she was a great nurse and always took the time to look after your concerns. I remember so well seeing her about my BP, and she would always say 'Brenda relax', and just by being in her office in her presence was so calming!
