SUZANNE IRENE LUCAS (published on September 13, 2008)

SUZANNE IRENE LUCAS 1939 - 2008 Born on September 16, 1939, Suzanne died peacefully on September 12, 2008 at Health Science Centre. Suzanne is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Mary Jane Lucas and Art Long of Port Moody, B.C., her much loved nephew and his wife, Rob and Marta Taylor of Vancouver, and her aunt Pat Lucas of Winnipeg. Growing up in Bissett, MB, Suzanne attended San Antonio School where she was an excellent student. She enjoyed many activities: church groups, hiking, target shooting, baseball and curling (a sport that she continued to enjoy for much of her adult life as a member of the Wildewood Club). Her Bissett roots ran very deep as did her Bissett friendships. In recent years she was a part of the organizing committee for two Bissett reunions and continued to work with others towards establishing a small museum and to preserve Bissett United Church. Suzanne attended United College and The University of Manitoba from 1955 1959, graduating with a B.Sc. Upon her graduation, she went to work at Great West Life Assurance Co. where she held many positions, retiring in 1995 as Director, Individual Operations. In retirement, Suzanne became very involved in two charities, the United Way where she spearheaded the campaign at Great West Life and was on the Speaker's Bureau during the general campaign. She also was very involved with Villa Rosa, supporting their work in many ways. The family is grateful for the kindness and skills of the staff of Health Science Centre who nursed her in her final days. Flowers in Suzanne's memory are gratefully declined. If friends so wish, contributions can be made to the United Way or to Villa Rosa. Suzanne's memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 20 at 2:00 p.m. at Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway. She died as she had lived; with strength, with courage and with dignity. THOMSON FUNERAL HOME 669 BROADWAY, WINNIPEG, MB R3C OX4 783-7211 Send expressions of sympathy at www.mem.com
