SUSAN BLOMQUIST It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Susan Jane Blomquist, who left us peacefully on the morning of November 7, 2018 with family and friends in attendance. Susan is survived by her three children, Stacy (Robbie), Christopher (Marie) and Michael (Shannon) and her grandchildren, Jeffrey, Ashley, Taylor and Jordan. Born in 1943 to Edward and Elizabeth Jane La Fortune, she married Robert James Blomquist in 1966. She is preceded in death by her parents, brother and her husband. Susan worked in a variety of fields in her life but spent most of her time working in the insurance industry where she both had a fruitful career and built many lifelong friendships. Susan maintained an active social life volunteering her time with both her church and many other agencies such as Doors Open Winnipeg, while still managing to make time for both friends and family. A voracious reader and card player, Susan had many passions but perhaps none were so acute as her love of food, learning new recipes, helping others in the kitchen and of course, preparing food for others. She was loved immensely and will be missed equally so. Prayers will be said on Thursday, November 15 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, 5635 Henderson Hwy. Funeral service will be held on Friday, November 16 at 10:00 a.m. also at the church.

So sad to hear of Susan's passing. I worked with Susan at Wawanesa and will always have some fun memories of our times working there. She was a treasure to all. - Posted by: Darrel Kitchur (co-worker) on: Nov 10, 2018
