Susan "Sue" Korosec

23 avril 195521 juin 2020

It is with a heavy heart and utmost sadness the family of Sue Korosec announces her sudden and unexpected passing on Sunday June 21, 2020 at LaVerendrye General Hospital. She leaves behind her husband Leo; daughters Anastasia (Christopher), Allison (Jamie) and Tamara (Steven); grandchildren A.J., Harvey, Vai, Zorana, Tuula and Mila; great granddaughter Jessica; sister Linda (Norm); in-laws Milan(Debbie), John(Susan), Valerie (Barry), Darinka, Aunt Brenda and special nephew Steven; as well as many nieces and nephews that she adored. Sue was predeceased by her parents William and Jerina, Uncle Nelson and Uncle Gordy.

Sue was born on April 23rd, 1955 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to William Wharton and Jerina O'Neil. She was raised in Sudbury, where she would meet and marry the love of her life, her high school sweetheart, Leo Korosec and start the family that would mean so much to her. They were married on March 31st 1973 – over 47 years ago, moved to Toronto, then Sudbury for brief stints before settling in Ignace, Ontario. Together they raised their children while Sue worked as a waitress, and even ran an arcade. Sue and Leo shared a love of the outdoors and cultivated this passion by hunting, fishing and camping at Savoy Lake for many years. New work opportunities eventually moved Sue, Leo and the family to Fort Frances, Ontario in 1986, where she graduated from Confederation College with her PSW. She worked at Rainy Crest and was adored by residents and their families alike. Sue remained working in the healthcare field at Shoppers Home Health and Sunset Medical, where she continued to care for and nurture her fellow employees and customers, all the while caring for her own family with a tireless drive that only she had. In addition to her very busy life, Sue continued to challenge herself with starting Smashing Tea Company, which yet was another labour of love. Despite all the endless responsibilities, Sue managed to find time for leisure, spending every available hour out-fishing Leo at Mine Center, where she was "The Queen of the Hill", enjoying the company of friends and family.

Sue was so many things to so many people, often filling the void in each of us. She was a wife, matriarch, sister, mother, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend, mentor, advocate, teacher, entrepreneur, confidant and sometimes a beacon of light for those less fortunate lost in the darkness. Sue had an uncanny ability to connect with people, graciously taking the time to chat, offer comfort, impart wisdom or crack a sarcastic zinger – all with her trademark vibrant smile and quick wit. Those of you that had the pleasure of spending more than two minutes talking to her know her ‘larger than life’ personality and unapologetic honesty were refreshing and pure. Sue was the center of our universe, selflessly dancing on the edge – helping us all in our times of need. She will be sorely missed but absolutely never forgotten. Rest in Peace Sue Korosec, you were a brilliantly cut, unique gem whose memories will live on through those lives you touched.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life will be held once the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted and the family can gather together. If friends so desire, in memoriam donations may be made to Salvation Army, 343 Scott Street, Fort Frances, ON, P9A 1H1 or www.salvationarmy.ca

Our sincere condolences to Leo, Stacey, Allison, Tamara and families. Sue was a dedicated mother who was the absolute center of her beautiful family. There really could never be another Sue!! Her unique, entertaining and sometimes x rated character was so much fun! Our fondest and most precious memories are at Savoy Lake. A plaque has been installed on the rock near the dock in Sue's memory . It reads: Sue and Micheline's rock. ( Leo has a rock under the deck. We'll let him share that one!) It's not easy saying goodbye to such a memorable friend. Sue fills our hearts with warm memories every time we make one of her delicious recipes, or drive by her old house or camp. We will miss you very much. And Sue! You did promise, that if you went first...you would come back and tell me what is on the other side. Waiting............. Love , Micheline , Gene, Danielle and family.

My introduction to Sue was indirectly through the abundance of canned food provided for hunt camp. Over the years Sue never let Leo, and the rest of us, go hungry. Sue’s generosity and constant smiling face will be missed.

Barb and I send our deepest condolences to Leo and family.

I only met Sue once through her sister Linda, whom I had the pleasure to work with in Sudbury. Linda would always have stories to tell the staff about their adventures and all the fun they had. I remember one story, something about painting their nails and having some wine. There were many stories but that is the one that stands out simply because of the way Linda told it. It was too funny. Linda, my heart goes out to you. Words cannot express how deeply sorry I am at the loss of your sister. I know you two were very close and shared that special sister bond. Thinking of you and all the family through this difficult time. Sending my thoughts and prayers.

Sue was one of the most amazing women I know; I loved everything about her. Her smile, her laugh, her hugs, and her super upbeat personality! Sue and Leo helped me out many times at the Bass Tourny, a lot of good times and great memories. I will miss her hugs. My heart goes out to you Leo, Alli, Harvey, and the entire family!! Love you all!

We shared a common bond, of back home, as we were from the same area ( Sudbury/ Espanola) always mentioning our visits when we bumped into each other for a chat and of course a laugh. You were definitely one of a kind and you will leave a little hole in all the hearts you touched. ❤️

Sue was an amazing women with a heart of gold. I first met Sue when she worked at Shoppers Home Health Care. She provided amazing support to my daughter Lindsay and myself. Lindsay loved like a family member she always had a smile for Linds and made her laugh with her wonderful sense of humour. Bob and I would often run into her and Leo up at Nestor Falls ice fishing and we always had a good laugh. Sue will be greatly missed by all who knew her, I know I will certainly miss her. My heart hurts for all her family, hold the memories of this wonderful woman close in your heart and celebrate the amazing person she was. She will be with you always. Our deepest and heartfelt condolences Laurie Lundale and Bob Irvine.

Ohh Sue... how I’m going to miss our chats at the store. You’re “favourite” store as you sometimes called it! 😉 some chats were short and sweet, and some long with lots of laughs and “s*#t talking” 😝 I’ll miss helping you find wine for your daughter, “You know that crap Allie drinks... tastes like koolaid!” I’ll miss you coming in and saying “Hey Luoma! How the f#@k are ya?!” 😂😂 which btw you and Allie are the only ones to still call me that!! Lol. ( in high school I went by my stepdads last name, for some reason they liked that name and just started calling me that and it’s stuck all this time 😅🥰)
I could go on and on about how awesome you were and how loved and missed you’ll be but everyone already knows that. You’ve touched so many people in this community, and we have lost such a wonderful soul way too soon. I’m gonna miss you my friend. 💞 Keep God laughing up there Sue! And behave yourself 😝😘 😇

Sending love to you all;

Love from;

Luoma 🖤
