In loving memory ~
On September 17th, with friends by her side, Susan passed away peacefully at the age of 68.
Susan led an incredibly spirited life full of travel, friends and connections with people and animals alike.
She loved to travel, and you could often find her with a plane ticket in her purse. Everywhere she went she made new friends, many who remained lifelong connections. Her ability to connect with people was inspiring. She was a person who could truly listen, be present and asked great questions. She loved to hear people’s stories and had the capacity to relate and talk to people from all walks of life.
She was a gifted writer; she spent time as a travel writer and helped to write and edit several books. As well as a writer, she was a forever student. Susan attended many workshops, courses and retreats, and devoted much of her time to those spiritual practices and teachings.
Susan was an intuitive and compassionate woman, but most of all she was generous. Her generosity was one of her most defining characteristics. Whether it was with her time, a kind word, her wisdom or gifts, we really will never know just how far her reach was and how many people she has touched with her generosity.
Susan led a rich and exciting life. We are sorry that she never had a chance to write her memoirs, as it would be quite the epic adventure to read- starting with her leaving her home town of Toronto in the 70’s to go live on Long Beach for the summer. She also had several stories about the musicians she met while working for Warner Music for a stint. While going through her photos we found a picture of her posing in Ozzy Osborne’s arms, and apparently she had a great Rod Stewart story!
As full as her life was, it wasn’t without it’s struggles. She endured lengthy periods of illness over the years. On her behalf, we would like to thank all those who provided her care, love and support.
We were blessed to have known you Sue.
There will be a Celebration of Life on October 23rd, 2pm at Crown Isle in the ‘Copper Room.’
If you feel moved to do so, please make a donation to Kitty Cat Pals in Susan’s memory.
