I always remember Susan with big smile and a helping hand. She was passionate and compassionate. I worked with her when I first started my nursing career until the time she moved out east. My thoughts and prayers are with Cole and her Family...

Susan is actually the reason I stuck with my first nursing job. She could see I was struggling and told me to be patient with myself and “give it 6 months.” She was always there to lend a hand and/or give a kind word.
Nurses love to chat, and Susan was always telling us about Cole; talking about how proud she was of him. You could FEEL her love.
She was beautiful inside and out. My deepest condolences to Cole, and her family.

My Dearest Susan was such a Beautiful compassionate soul . We met at Windsor Regional Hospital and worked side by side as RN ‘s on the Surgical Unit. We hit it off almost immediately, Susan had many visits at my house as well as other friends. Our Sons Logan and Cole always had good times together hanging by the pool. I unfortunately just found out of her passing 3 hours ago and so very saddened by this tragedy 💔 Susan carried many good qualities but the one that I remember is her caring ,compassionate heart almost to a fault . Not only did I love her but her patients adored her. So much so they often would request her as their nurse . Susan was Beautiful inside and out . I will always hold a special place in my heart of your Beautiful Susan 💔 My deepest Condolences 🙏

It was always nice to meet Susan on the street or at the store, or at one our restaurants in town; she was a kind and friendly person, sensitive to other's feelings. We had our boys in the same year and used to get them together when they were small. My condolences to her family on this great loss---the world feels it with you. God bless.
