It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Susan Stenlund. Susan passed away at Pinecrest Home for the Aged, in Kenora Ontario on November, 8th 2021 at the age of 67. She was born in Vancouver British Columbia, on September 19th, 1954.

 

Susan is survived by her husband Murray Stenlund, children Jason (Samantha), Jeff (Theresa) and Joelle (Eric) and her grandchildren, Magnus, Darius, Jacob, Katelyne, Hayden, Allison and Ryan and her sister Cheryl Dewson, sister in-law Carol Derbyshire and sister in-law Cheryl (Chris) Lawn and many nieces and nephews.  

 

Susan was predeceased by her mother, Sylvia Milliard and father, Raymond Milliard, her brother Randy Milliard, her sister Mary Jo Turner, her brother-in-law Garry C. Alcock, her brother-in-law Mark Dewson, her brother-in-law Al Turner, her brother-in-law Russell Stenlund and her mother-in-law Helen Stenlund and father-in-law Henry Stenlund. 

 

Susan was born in Vancouver British Columbia and then later moved to Kenora Ontario where she attended both elementary & secondary school at Lakewood High School. As a young adult, she worked as Nurse’s Aide at Pinecrest Home of the Aged.  Susan left nursing to raise her family which she adored; later on she ran some support groups for Counter Weight and worked at Redden’s Store.

 

Susan loved spending time with her family.  Susan was known for her baking of bread, pies, cookies, cream puffs and really anything sweet.  She loved cooking and baking especially with her grandchildren which brought Grandma Susan much joy over the years as she enjoyed teaching them how to bake and cook.  She also enjoyed cleaning, watching birds, walking and spending time with her family which always brought a smile to her face.  Susan loved spending time at their family cabin in Sioux Narrows when her children were young watching them fish off of the dock, swim and spending quality time with family and friends; unfortunately in 1984 the cabin was hit by lightning and it burned down. After the cabin burnt down Susan enjoyed traveling to different locations with her family.  The love of the lake, the wildlife and watching her kids enjoy themselves on the lake drew her back to the water and in 1989 they built their home on Longbow Lake.

 

Although Susan suffered for a number of years with Alzheimer’s Susan always had a kind and gentle spirit. Susan loved people and always radiated happiness and joy to those who came in contact with her.  She was always willing to lend a helping hand.

 

Interment will be announced at a later summer date.
