Susanne (Sue) Marie Blanchard (Burton)

June 22, 1965 - August 26, 2021


It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mama bear and sister in Cowichan Hospice House, after a 1 1/2 year fight with cancer.

Sue is survived by her partner and soulmate Jay, children Alycia (Shaun), Cody (Jo), brothers: Neil, Gary (Joanne), Brian (Erin), step-siblings Marty (Kat) and Cathy, 2 grand-dogs Frank and Kilo, several nieces and nephews and a large extended family. Sue was pre-deceased by her parents Ed and Alice Burton, both of Duncan.

Sue unconditionally loved her kids and grand-dogs, and enjoyed spending time with family & friends, camping, beach-combing, making wood signs and crafting. She had many circles of friends and many were lifelong friends.

Celebration of life will be announced at a later date. The family would like to thank the amazing staff at Cowichan Hospice House and wound care clinic for their kind and gentle care.

In lieu of flowers or donations please hug and say I love you to your loved ones.

~ Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down on us ~

Condolances to Neil, Gary, Brian and their families. To Suzie husband and their children. I just recently heard about Uncle Eddie and now dear Suzie. My heart is so sad for your loss. I haven’t heard from my cousins in many, many years. After Auntie Alice died then my mother Agnes Kocurek I moved to Alberta and lost touch with them all. I’m so sorry I missed out on Susie’s life.
