Passing of Suzanne Veuger
The obituary for Suzanne Veuger has been placed in the 2022 Yearbook page.
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our Mum on April 10, 2022 at Lions Gate Hospital. Mum was born on September 15, 1942 in Emsworth, England to Dennis and Anne Hibbert. She grew up in England but also spent time in Nigeria where her father worked after WW 2. She became a teacher and immigrated to Vancouver in 1968 where she taught the remainder of her career in West Vancouver. She loved teaching and made lasting impacts on her students. Mum married Peter in 1969 and they created a happy life and home for their sons. She loved boating and spent many happy times cruising on the M.V. Tenakee along with friends from the RVYC. Her relationships with family and friends near and far were very important to her. In later years, Mum committed herself to volunteering at the RVYC, 15 Field Regiment RCA, Lions Gate Hospital and St. Francis in The Wood where her thoughtfulness and kindness shined through. Mum was predeceased by her adored grandson Matthew and her loving husband Peter. She is survived by her sons, Andrew and David, her daughters-in-law Yvette and Cynthia, her granddaughters Ashley and Caitlin, who loved their Grannie and brother-in-law and sister-in-law Fred and Sheila. We would like to thank West Vancouver Fire and Rescue and the Doctors and Nurses at Lions Gate Hospital for their wonderful care of Mum. A service will take place at St. Francis in The Wood on June 8, 2022 at 1:30 pm. We love you Mum and we will miss you.
Please, no flowers but for those that wish, a donation to Canuck Place would be gratefully accepted.
