Elliott, Sue (Shaw, Andrews) (née Florence Anne Robinson)

November 17, 1931May 20, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother Sue, of Pointe Claire, Québec on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. Mum was born on November 17, 1931 in Montreal to Florence Walker McMaster and Jonathan Robinson.

From the time of her father's sudden death when Mum was just sixteen, she quickly learned independence and ingenuity. Mum was strong, feminine and optimistic. She adhered to "expect the unexpected" and a "never give up" mantra.

Mum attended Roslyn School, Miss Edgar's and Miss Cramp's School and McGill University.

In June 1953, Mum married Harold LeRoy Shaw. At thirty-three, Mum found herself living in Knowlton, Quebec, divorced and a single parent to four children. She originally moved there for a summer and ended up spending thirty years. Mum cherished her friends and the support she found in the small town.

In 1967, Mum married John Andrews, owner of Knowlton Nurseries. Shortly after, she took a floral design course in Montreal, to work along side her husband for many years. Following this, Mum started her career as a real estate agent. John died in 1981 and Mum was widowed at fifty. She left Knowlton and returned to Montreal eventually working at the head office of Royal LePage on Greene Avenue.

Several years after returning to Montreal, Mum married Neil Elliott. Moving to Pointe Claire, she enjoyed sailing, playing tennis, bridge and volunteering at the West Island Palliative Care Residence. She was an active guild member of St. John the Baptist Church.

Mum was extremely talented, resourceful and creative, always making her house a home. She was an experienced sewer, knitter and enjoyed gardening and refinishing furniture. She loved animals, had many dogs and one special cat, Maisie. Mum was kind with a selfless disposition and her smile could light up a room. She was a loving mother, grandmother, devoted friend, and community member.

Mum is survived by her brother, the Very Reverend Jonathan Robinson, C.O., and her children: Leslie Moulin (Patrick), Lisa Lang (Michael), Dr. LeRoy Shaw and Liane Shaw (Barry), her grandchildren: Jonathan Moulin (Rachel), Jeremy Moulin (Wei Luo), Katherine Starr (David), Vanessa Levy (DJ), Matthew Lang, Samantha Topchik, Hugh Topchik, Samuel Shaw and Rachel Shaw and great-grandchildren: Mackenna Moulin, Jaden Moulin, Philo Moulin and Dennis Levy.

A celebration of life will take place in Knowlton at St. Paul's Anglican Church when possible.

We are grateful and deeply appreciative for the compassionate care that Mum received while at Manoir Beaconsfield. A special thank you to Donna, Brenda and Sabrina.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Paul's Anglican Church, 24 Rue Saint-Paul, Lac-Brome, Quebec.
