(Resident of Haliburton, Ontario)
The valiant warrior has laid down her mighty sword. Susan Naomi Burwash Forbes passed away at home with grace and courage, surrounded by love. Sue was the dearly loved partner of Karen Albert, cherished mother of Lisa (Peter Godziszewski) and Robin (Chris Koshowski) and adoring Gram to Jett and Oscar. Sue is survived by her loving older siblings Bryan (Patricia Black), Liz (John Mosher) and Nancy (John Ruedy) and her dear cousin and friend, Anne Folger (Rob Dowsett). She is sadly missed by her faithful dog, Sadie. Sue was an artist, a humanitarian, a poet and a dreamer and will always live in the hearts of those who loved her.
