Susan's love and devotion to her family and loved ones was a

caring, she had a warmth and a witty sense of humour, personified in
her wry smirk when she found something funny. She nurtured those in
her care, and gave unending support, only asking the same in
An avid artist and creative person, Susan was skilled in many
forms of expression, drawing, knitting, etc. Despite the challenges of
her condition, in her later years Susan picked up her paint brushes
and created numerous wonderful pieces.
Susan embodied perserverance, with the many challenges life
brought her way, she never faltered, and stood to face them head on.
Never to be told what she could or could not do, she would show you
what she was capable of. She will be dearly missed by all
those her life has touched.
