_0001_suan-leppWhen Susan was 8, the family immigrated to Canada. The trip took 39 days, 6 trains and 2 steamships. Relatives in Gretna, Man., took them in. A year later Susan, her mother and sister contracted typhoid fever from river water; her mother died. Susan and Aron settled in Ontario.  Life with 5 children, a farm, a factory job and medical setbacks wasn’t easy, but they always found time for vacations, school activities, relatives and good food. Sundays were for Sunday school, worship, dinner, visits, faspa and evening service. When they retired, Susan and Aron moved to Tabor Manor. She enjoyed good health and died in her sleep.
