Where do I start !
My mother, Evelyn Jeffries, introduced me to Susan in the late 1990’s, knowing how much I loved horses.
Susan and I became fast friends. She was looking for someone to help exercise the horses. I was excited to have the opportunity. We had so many riding adventures, her farm in Elizabethville was steps away from the Northumberland forest. Spencer and Chase had their first ride on a horse with ‘Banner’.
Tobogganing down the farm hill in the winter, Christmas’ spent with Susan and her family, tacking up and spending the day in the forest, having a visit from Santa (Howard). Susan gave with an open heart. She was a wonderful friend. I will cherish all the many wonderful memories. Rest peacefully dear friend.
Our visits with Aunt Susan were not as frequent as we would have liked, but we delighted in her company, farm, and cooking whenever we were up. Some of my favorite childhood memories involved pursuing kittens or riding horses on her farm. She was thoughtful and generous with her time and energy, and my children were blessed to know the same from Susan. We will miss her greatly.
I am saddened to read of Susan’s passing. She never missed an opportunity to stop and chat or enquire about our family. She worked for years with my husband Dean at the hospital. She was never without a big smile when I ran into her.
