SWAILE, Susan (Suzy) Joan
(formerly known as Mosdell,
Suzy passed away peacefully on May 13, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Suzy was born in Langley, BC on April 12, 1952 and lived her whole life in the lower mainland. Tragically predeceased by son Jarrid in 2004, Suzy is survived and will be forever missed by daughter Brittany (Terry), husband Kevin, stepson Lee (Chelsea), grandchildren Benjamin, Lukas and Tucker, mother Joan, sister Connie, brother Gordie (Kim) and many other friends and family too numerous to mention.
Suzy was a long time employee of London Drugs and was eternally grateful for the network of friends she had through her work family. She was an avid hiker, loved to dragonboat (and that network of friends), working in her garden and yard at Birch Bay, loved animals and was a regular supporter of the SPCA. Suzy had a smile that could light up a room and embraced life every day, no matter what challenges she faced. Suzy firmly believed her family and friends came first and she was the first one to provide comfort in times of need and to help celebrate their successes.
Suzy’s passing leaves a hole that can never be filled but memories of her kindness, her joy of life and love and commitment to friends and family will never be forgotten.
In lieu of flowers donations to the Mission Hospice would be gratefully appreciated. A Celebration of Suzy’s life will be held on Saturday, June 27, 2015, in Abbotsford, time and location still to be determined.
