SUSS, Lois Joan (nee Weedmark) – Passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with multiple health issues at Peterborough Regional Health Centre on March 6, 2013 in her 80th year. Cherished wife of Hans for 56 years. Beloved mother of Sara Suss and her husband Alin Lutz, and Kurt Suss. Dear grandma of Nicole and Konrad. Predeceased by her parents Emily and Eric Weedmark of Beachburg, Ontario and her brother Howard (survived by wife Orysia). Lois will be sadly missed by her extended family and cousins. Lois and Hans were devoted lifelong partners. They married in 1956 and continued to pursue their respective careers; Lois as an elementary school teacher for the Peterborough County Board of Education who worked for 30 years, teaching young offenders at the Peterborough County Jail and students with special needs and Hans at Trent Glass Limited Peterborough, Plant Superintendant. They enjoyed life to the fullest and after retiring at age 55, embraced a lifestyle of sailing in Ontario, the Atlantic and Intracoastal Waterway aboard the ‘Konstanz’ (out of Cobourg Yacht Marina). A heartfelt thanks to the staff at Empress Gardens and the Peterborough Regional Health Centre who cared for Lois, especially those of the Dialysis Unit. She spent her later years with husband Hans at the ‘Empress’ where they had danced in their youth in the ballroom. A funeral service will be held at the Comstock Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, 356 Rubidge Street on Sunday, March 10, 2013 at 2:30 p.m., with visitation one hour prior from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. If so desired, donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation or a charity of your choice.

Dear Hans, Kurt and Sara,

It's been such a long time since I popped in for a visit on a rare stop in Peterborough. I think it was the mid 80's when I stopped by with my soon to be wife, Kathy. Luckily, Hans and Lois were home and we had a wonderful visit catching up.

Our condolences to you and your family.

Hans... it was a long time ago in the 60s when we were all next door neighbours when you lived on Glendale Drive and my mother, Shirley, and Lois were such good friends that they were constantly popping in to each others house for a coffee and a cigarette while they caught each other up with the latest news. Lois was always someone we, as kids, felt comfortable talking to and knew she would always take the time to listen. Mom, who is now 87, was saddened to hear of Lois' passing but knows she had an eventful and joyous life with you full of many good memories. Our sympathies go to you, Kurt, and Sara at this sad time.

Dear Hans, Kurt and Sara.
Bill sent me this, I was shocked to read it. I often wondered about all the Suss's and where they were and how you were all doing. Lois was a great friend and neighbour when we lived in Peterborough. Its very sad that we lost touch with you over the years. For some reason Lois popped into my head last week. Wishing the family all the best during this difficult time.
