Susan Patricia Aberdeen
April 8, 1961 – June 2, 2010
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Susan on Wednesday, June 2 at Royal Inland Hospital, after a courageous battle with numerous health challenges. Susan is lovingly remembered by her partner Ron Rodgers and her children Andrew and Laura Pineo. She is also survived by her devoted and loving mother Joyce, brothers Jim (Sue) and Ken (Nedy), nieces (Jenn, Siena, Kennedy), nephew (Mitch) and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was predeceased by her brother David and father Malcom. Susan was exceptionally close with her Dad and her family is comforted knowing she is once again back within his loving embrace.
Susan was born in Vancouver, BC and spent her early years exploring Western Canada with her family, until finally settling in Revelstoke to raise her family. Camping provided Susan with some of her most cherished memories and happiest times in both her childhood and adult years. Susan was a devoted and loving mother who always thought the best of people and enjoyed volunteering at her church, children’s schools and other community organizations. She also enjoyed her pets, as they too, played an important role in her life. Most recently, Susan and Ron have enjoyed living in Kamloops.
Susan was a kind soul who showed remarkable strength and perseverance when faced with life’s many challenges. She will be greatly missed by her family for her indomitable spirit, love for her children and family, as well as, her kindness and compassion for others.
A Celebration of her life was held on Saturday, June 5, 2010 in the Schoening Funeral Chapel with Canon Jack Phelps officiating.
Should friends desire, donations to a charity of one’s choice would be appreciated in Susan’s memory.
