Her love of fashion led to a career in ladies’ wear retail sales. She worked at Eaton’s for many years and later was the manager of Chapman’s Ladies’ Wear in Oakridge Mall. She was always dressed up and was known to many as “The Pink Lady", her favorite colour.

Sunya was predeceased by her husband and her parents.

Sunya was a devoted and distinguished guest of the Kate Linder Afternoon Tea (Vancouver) for over 15 years.
She will always be remembered by her wonderful pink attire and her larger than life smile. Sunya was also the first recipient of the RON LINDER award (presented at the Vancouver Tea) for her on-going support.
Kate, the cast from The Young and Restless who visited Vancouver and the organizing team will dearly miss her.

I will miss my dear friend Sunya--she was a good friend to my husband Wayne - like a son to her - they were neighbours across the alley from each other. She didn't know me at all until Wayne and I got engaged and she approved of the union! She had a bridal shower for me and it was so sweet and beautiful as Sunya sure knew how to put on a party! We continued our friendship over the years as Bob and Wayne passed and we gave comfort to each other over the phone sharing memories of the past - I feel a deep void/sadness that I can't share with her anymore, but it makes my heart feel lightness when I believe that Wayne, Sunya and Bob are together enjoying their afterlife together! Sunya had a "sunny" disposition and was a joy to know--I will miss her dearly! love you, Janet
