September 15, 1944 - January 14, 2022

Susan Jane Scott was a caring and cherished sister, aunt and friend. After many months of struggle, she left this world on January 14th at the age of 77.
She was predeceased by her brother Wayne; father Harold and mother Amy. She is survived by her sisters, Roslyn and Bonnie.
Born and raised in Winnipeg, she was a quiet, behind-the-scenes advocate for her city. She discreetly supported the advancement of First Nations youth and artists. She enabled post-secondary education for Indigenous students, summer camps for immigrant children, and successfully encouraged and mentored emerging and mid-career First Nations Artists. Susan's dedication to Winnipeg was recognized with a Senate 150 Medal, which acknowledges Canadians who make their hometowns a better place to live. She also received a Paul Harris Fellow Award in appreciation of her years of service to others as a member of the Winnipeg Rotary Club. Both honours brought a shine to her modest heart.
Susan's extended family included her niece Laura; nephews, Benson and Maxwell; grandnieces, Danielle, Madeline, Beatrice and Gisele; cousin Dale; first cousin once removed Paul and long-time partner Angel. They all were fortunate to experience Susan's thoughtful and creative support. Fond memories include making Halloween costumes, hand beading Christmas stockings, delicious choo-choo train birthday cakes, arranging flowers to welcome restaurant patrons, as well as adventures near and far.
Susan also adored her wonderful friends. Paul, a long-time family friend and advisor, was Susan's rock. Paul's wife Margaret provided supportive patience and kindness. Susan's dear friend Leslie, with the support of husband Terry, was by Susan's side to comfort her and enable out-of-town family to be with Susan as she passed. Her new friend Em harnessed her nursing skills to guide and support Susan's treatment. In addition, there are numerous other friends and acquaintances with whom Susan enjoyed lunches at Deluca's, musical concerts, and creative activities. All mattered to her greatly.
For the safety of all loved ones, plans to celebrate Susan's life will take place in the spring of 2022.
For those who wish to commemorate Susan's life or express sympathy for her passing, please consider donating to the Winnipeg Foundation or a charity of your choosing in Susan's name.

Condolences & Memories (15 entries)

  • I enjoyed the short time that I worked with Susan. She would thank me for assisting her and get me laughing with something she'd say. And I got to know Susan's beautiful spirit. - Posted by: Lynn Renn (Friend) on: Feb 24, 2022

  • Susie was a new friend and very supportive of my work. We were just getting to know each other better when Covid came along & she could no longer visit my home studio. She was intensely interested in all kinds of arts and happily shared her enthusiasm & knowledge. I was blessed to have her company, and so enjoyed the few times we had together. Her passing came as a great shock, and it’s a terrific loss for her family & friends. You have my sincere sympathies. - Posted by: Pat Stanton (acquaintance) on: Feb 01, 2022

  • Susan was a regular customer at the coffee shop I worked at in my early 20s. One morning she wasn’t at the cafe and her friend, Robert, showed up and informed me that she had been hit by a car while crossing the street. He requested that I bring Susan her usual coffee to her hospital bed for the next 3 days as he would be absent. My mother and I brought a coffee to the st Boniface hospital for the next three days as it was no trouble. Many months later Susan and my paths crossed at the coffee shop and I introduced myself. She said she had been hoping to find me and we had lovely conversations about education and art in the cafe whenever she came in. Susan invited me to a delicious seafood paella dinner at her home and introduced me to her friends. I also met up with her regular group at Deluca’s for lunch. Susan also insisted I accept a generous MEC gift card which I used to buy my bike. I have thought of Susan very often over the last 10 years and every time I ride my bike. Thank you, dear Susan. - Posted by: Lane Gibson (Friend) on: Jan 26, 2022

  • So sorry to hear of Susan’s exit from this earth. We first met this beautiful, caring, friendly and generous woman while living on Wellington Crescent. Every morning by 06:00, she would unlock our condo door (key provided, of course😂) and whisper to our Shih Tzu Tiramisu to come; off they would go for a walk to Starbuck’s. We enjoyed attending the symphony together, sauntering through the English gardens and peony patches followed by a picnic at the Assiniboine park. Lunch with her friends at DeLuca’s Saturday mornings was always filled with laughter. I am so thankful for the wonderful memories, grateful to have shared life with this kind, loving woman. Till we meet again, Susan, you are remembered with much love! 💞 - Posted by: Gisele & Denis Fontaine (Friends) on: Jan 24, 2022

  • Heartfelt sympathy to all the family, friends and loved-ones. Susie and I were friends for close to sixty years. We enjoyed exciting ski trips to Aspen, Banff and the ski slopes of Manitoba. Always looked forward to my visits to Winnipeg and getting together with Susie for lunch @ DeLuca's or Assiniboine Park Duck Pond Cafe or meeting at The Forks. Our sons have beautiful Christmas stockings made by Susie, and they are still enjoyed some 45 years later. Thanks for all the lovely memories. I cherished her friendship and admired her in so many ways. Love you Susie! - Posted by: Chrissie (friend) on: Jan 24, 2022

She was a quiet, thoughtful woman and I always enjoyed our conversations before and after class.
