I personally have worked with Sue on 3 East and 4 East for many years. She will be sadly missed, we loved her, best ward clerk ever.We feel we have a 4East family that Sue was a huge part of. All her friends on 4 East have seen all her Richie and Rayelle pictures daily, and the dog too! She loved them so much, also heard all about her family. Lots of card game tales. Love to you all ,my prayers are with you. Richie if you could email me when you can I have something for you and Rayelle I would like to give you from her 4 East family. Thanks

My thoughts and prayers are with her family and her 4 east family. Sue was so kind to me and my husband during his long stay in the hospital. I will remember our chats and encouragement when I was feeling down.
Rest in peace Sue

Thoughts & prayers for the Hayward family. I have great memories of the Hayward family on Signal Hill. Such great memories for sure. Anytime we’ve met since we always talk about those times, like we’ve never left. Thinking about you guys, stay strong!

Aunt Susan was the most beautiful Caring woman! My favourite memory was Susan introducing me to Twilight! Rayne was just a baby & we watched the movie and after that I was obsessed, all books were read and never missed a new movie in theatres., Susan & I always chatted about team Edward or team Jacob lol.
Now her great niece Nevaeh shares the same love of twilight that was passed to me.
We love you Susan, I will be looking for those dimes xoxo 😉🥰

Sue is for ever etched in my very soul.
No matter where I go she is always with me .
I have never met anyone so tickled to see what you bought and of course what you bought for her lol !
I do miss her and there will never never be another Sue Hayward!
Sometimes God is good and takes the pain and suffering away and yes we understand this but to leave us here without her is tough.
Love you to the moon and back 💕
Your buddy and dear friend,

Susan was my younger sister and she loved jon bon Jovi. He played one year in moncton and it was my 50th birthday. The celebrations were in Nfld, and when it came to wish me happy birthday she said , just remember I gave up bon Jovi for this. She had everyone in the room laughing. I will miss you so much and will love you forever
