Susan K Davis (Goodman)

April 28, 1947 - September 27, 2014


Susan was a gentle soul and those who shared her life were privy to her quick wit and exuberant joy of life. She had a natural charm and sincere warmth, she easily embraced those who were invited into her home giving all who were fortunate to enter such attentive care and time…that each and everyone felt special.

Susan’s greatest joy in life was sharing time with her family, being out in nature, a good book, a good meal and stimulating conversation. She has also enjoyed a few friends who have remained so (many throughout her lifetime). Susan did most of her growing up in Montreal and The Thousand Islands, ON. She was educated at Sir George Williams University and began her career as a Unit Coordinator at the Montreal General Hospital and later at St. Paul’s in Vancouver. It was in Montreal where she met the love of her life and her husband, Sean Davis. They married and eventually relocated to BC where they had two beautiful children Liam S. Davis (1978) and Shannon B. Davis (1980).

Liam predeceased his mother and father on Dec 9, 2012 and took part of Susan with him Her daughter Shannon was by her side at the hospital and supported her with such love and intuitive care, that no mother would feel less than honored, proud and blessed.

Susan was also loved by her sister Bonnie (Maggie) MacLean who will miss her beyond words. They were true sisters in heart and deed and were frequently thought to be twins….which was becoming rather fun and always brought a mutual grin and giggle. She is also predeceased by her wonderful mother Jean H. Goodman and her father William G. Goodman.

Susan left us very suddenly. She left us with the same grace, love and acceptance that she brought and shared in her daily life. She helped make the end of her journey easier for her loved ones….by her casual manner and nonchalant acceptance, we followed her lead and smiled and talked and loved, right to the end,

How much Susan will be missed by those who knew and loved her. Included here is a little poem that was a part of her sons obituary, it is too applicable and must be included.

“We love you forever, we like you for always, as long as we’re living, our love you will have”

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society.

From: kelly walker
Relation: sister of jann ashworth

Susan was a special friend of my sister jann and i was blessed to meet her because of that friendship. It was a gift to me from both of them to see the beauty of vancouver island. My fondest memory was sue beautifully reading poetry at french beach. Her easy laugh and love of all living things was contagious and i know my sister cherished her friendship to no end. I will have an everlasting place in my heart just for sue, sincerely kelly walker

From: Bonnie Adams
Relation: My best friend's sister

Sean & Shannon
This is such a shock – am just aware now of Sue’s passing. She was one of a kind, with a great grin. Hard to believe so many years have gone by since I was out to see you (1986).

Also, sincere condolences in the passing of Liam. I am paying the price for procrastination as I had intended to send a card when I found out about him.

Tragic news for sure. May you find peace to know their suffering is over.

Take care of each other.

Til we meet again ….

Love Bonnie in CP, Ontario
