    There was no one as bright and light as Susan. She forged ahead in life with confidence, laughter and knowledge it would be a wonderful adventure. Susan loved her family fiercely. They are blessed to carry on her ability to face life with strength, laughter and curiosity.

    I knew Sue from when I began in CVICU way back in 79! I was lucky enough to have a sail with her and Matinis at RNSYS and a few trips to the farm - I remember watching her feed dead chicks to her falcon one visit!!! She was always so full of life and so full of fun!! I remember some fun lunch times were when she'd bring in a pile of veggies raw and cut them all up for lunch!! There was almost always a smile on her face and a giggle in her throat!! She loved her family above all and my heart goes out to you! My deepest sympathies.💔

    I am very sorry for your loss. I worked with "Sue Rob" in CVICU in the 90's and have great memories of sharing "sailing salty sea dog stories" with her on night shifts. She was one of these ladies who came on shift and looked like a million bucks and at the end of the shift looked exactly the same. I am so sorry she has left us. Most sincerely, Jeannette Combes

    Susan was my oldest and dearest friend. I have so many happy, fun memories growing up with Susan (and Heather) in the 60s and 70s. We had countless crazy adventures which to this day still make me laugh out loud. Everyone loved Susan, she was an amazing lady with an incredible spirit who loved life and lived life to the fullest. Sending love and big hugs to all her family. Margie xox

    I'm sending heartfelt hugs from Prince George, BC. I am so sorry to hear of Susan's passing. I have special memories of our times at Heather and Susan's house. I was always welcomed by Goodie and the two aunts. We were often up to mischief, and we usually blamed it on Susan since she was the youngest. But I realize now that maybe our pranks were her ideas to start with. Whenever I visit Pointe Claire, I do the neighbourhood walk and remember the families house by house. We were a small community. I am thankful to have been able to see photos of Susan on Facebook. I loved her infectious smile which brightened my day even though I'm so far away. Judy Chown

    Worked many a night shift with Susan- her stories were brilliant, her crafts(and soups) were amazing, her sense of adventure and zest for life were palpable- she was stylish , smart, and loved her farm and her family most❤️

    So sorry to hear that Sue has passed away. I have fond memories of her smile on those long CVICU shifts many years ago. My condolences to her children.

    I was so shocked and saddened to read of Susan's passing. So young and vibrant. Didn't realize Phil passed last year as well. I've known Susan (and Heather) my whole life as well as their dear late Mom, Goodie. Our families were inseparable way back in the Pointe Claire days. Please know that I am thinking of you all at this most difficult time. XO Linda Churchill Kagan
