Susie attended University of Saskatchewan and earned a 2-year teaching certificate. She taught at Oman School, Swift Current, for 2 years until her children came. She tended to her young family, cooking, gardening, planning camping holidays. She earned her BEd from University of Regina in 1979 and returned to teaching full-time. She was proud of teaching many children to read. After Glenn’s death, Susie continued teaching, caring for her aging mother and mother-in-law, managing the family and her mother’s farm. In retirement, she stayed in her home, filling the yard with tomatoes and hollyhocks. Susie loved receiving visits and hearing stories of her grandchildren’s lives and milestones. In July, she fractured her hip, and although she was determined to recover, complications caused her health to rapidly deteriorate.
