Sue was a former employee of Bell Aliant. Sue loved making greeting cards, working and creating her own Public Garden like garden and redecorating her homes. She always said her favourite smell was paint. She was a former squash player, active golfer (hole in one achiever) and avid card player. We will miss her attendance on the weekly Saturday night card game with her siblings and brother in law as well as her monthly poker game with her girlfriends. She was an avid traveller just returning from a Mediterranean cruise in November. Though she traveled the world her ultimate adventure was her trip to Sable Island with friends Marion and Peggy to see the ponies. She always said that when she died she was going to float over Sable Island and ride the ponies. I’m sure she is there now.
