Wood Haddon, Suzanne

November 8, 1944 – June 16, 2016

Surrounded by love, and with strength and grace beyond measure, at La Maison Aube Lumière on June 16.

Sue was the adored mother of Sarah, dear sister of Peter, and Auntie Sooze to Susannah and Nick. She will be greatly missed by Sarah’s father, Ron, his nephew Chris and niece Kerry, her many friends both here and in the UK, and her extended family.

Sue embraced life fully, with a sense of optimism, kindness and good humour, and took immense pleasure in sharing a multitude of activities with her wide circle of friends. She had boundless energy and curiosity, and her loss will be keenly felt by all who loved her.

Special thanks to the gastroenterology team at CHUS-Hôtel Dieu and the cancer care unit at CHUS-Fleurimont, particularly Dr. Beaudoin and Dr. Bachand, as well as Dr. Doyon and the staff at La Maison Aube Lumière, for the superb care shown to Sue. Her family would also like to thank her many friends for their thoughtfulness, love and support, particularly her dear friend Sue Turner.

Respecting Sue’s wishes not to have a formal farewell, no visitation or service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign or the Canadian Cancer Society would be gratefully acknowledged by the family.
