  • I went to school in Junior High & High school with Susan in Winnipeg many years ago. I only have one image of her then. I was so saddened to learn she passed this year, & so young. She was an exceptional student, humble & quiet & kind..a gentle soul. I was proud to learn that she went to the top in the St. Boniface Hospital, as a caring devoted person to the staff & the patients. I always knew she was destined to greatness in caring for people, & am glad she fulfilled her mission. Way to go Susan! My deepest heartfelt prayers & sympathy to her Family, Friends & staff at the St. Boniface Hospital. I wish you light, peace & love in your next journey, Susan. God keep you & bless you sweet lady. I'll never forget you. Laurie Anderson. - Posted by: Laurie Anderson (Former School Mate) on: Aug 03, 2021
