Susan Jane Bridger
March 10, 1954 – June 7, 2018
A service of remembrance will be held at the Capilano Golf Course on Wednesday June 20th, from 2-4pm. Susan Bridger was a ray of sunshine and it was her wish that we celebrate her life by incorporating colour into what we wear to the service.
* Please note the Club’s Dress Code: No jeans of any colour or flip flops.
Mum passed away in her sleep on Thursday, June 7th in the presence of her loved ones, in the comfort of the North Shore Hospice. In May of 2016 she was diagnosed with incurable breast cancer that metastasized to her lungs. She spent her last few months making unforgettable memories with her siblings, who flew in from Europe and her immediate family. Her strong and positive disposition eased the pain of her passing for her friends and family.
Mum was born in Huddersfield, England to Dorothy and Neville Mutter. She has four siblings who all reside in different parts of Europe. Mum married the love of her life, Paul Bridger with whom she emigrated to Canada almost 40 years ago. There they started their family together and began to raise their two daughters, Claire and Emily. Tragically Paul died suddenly in ’97. Sue resided in West Vancouver and went on to give her daughters the best childhood and education she could. She was comforted knowing that when she passed Emily and Claire were both happily married to wonderful husbands and were starting families of their own. Aliana Julia, daughter to Dale and Claire was the cherry on top of mum’s life, as she put it. An extraordinary Grandma, Susan’s caring and effervescent nature will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation/ the North Shore Hospice as we were blown away by the care and compassion the nurses and doctors showed to mum and family.
