Suzanne Elizabeth Clarke
Died May 31, 2020 at home, prepared and peaceful. Suzanne was loved by her small local family and large disbursed family. Husband Doug, daughter Lauren, son-in-law Steven, and grandson Jackson were with Suzanne throughout her wellness and her illness. Step-children Jen, Geoff and Kate were always in Suzanne’s thoughts. Her two grandsons, Owen and Jackson, brought her joy - she was so grateful to have time with them each. It was a sorrow to Suzanne that she and her granddaughter Isabel never looked into each others eyes. Her siblings Stephen, twin sister Heather, Christine, Andrew and her many nieces and nephews and their families were always in her heart. Her many dear friends here in Frontenac as well as those from childhood have been a great support.Suzanne had many talents and interests. In her younger days Suzanne was a competitive rower up to the Canadian Championship level. After her competition days she loved the peace of canoe and kayak trips. A creative spirit imbued her many passions. She was a weaver, a spinner, a knitter. She raised dairy goats and made exquisite cheese from their milk. She was horse-crazy and loved to ride and had bred and raised a small herd. Suzanne loved music: she enjoyed participating in the Trinity Church choir and had picked up the violin again after some years away from the instrument. She cared about the natural world and strove to honour our planet. Supporting the local food movement she developed a large home garden and planted an orchard on her property. Most of all she was a compassionate person who provided support and caring to all around her. If you wish to make a donation in her memory, the family suggests planting a tree in her honour or contributing to cancer research.
