Susan Eleanor Campbell Evans, 80, passed away peacefully at home
with her family gathered around her on Sunday January 7, 2024.
Sue was a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, educator, and friend to so many. She was predeceased by her husband, Tony, her parents, Wally and Dell Campbell, and her sister, Heather Shore.
She leaves behind her three daughters, Laura, Heidi (Martin Derepentigny), Lisa (Dave Furey), and her son, Chris. Also with her at the end was her sister and brother-in-law, Mary and Steve Kirby.
Eleven grandchildren knew Sue as Nam: Zachary (Stephanie), Shane, Aidan (Aya), and Owen Rodgers; Graham (Katrine), Elaina (Jamie), and Gabriel (Taylor) Derepentigny; Brendan and Brian Pallett; Jalyn and Krystin Furey; as well as her precious great-granddaughters, Charlotte and Victoria Derepentigny. She will also be remembered and sorely missed by numerous nieces and nephews.
Sue had a lifelong love of working with children. She was educated at St. Joseph Teachers College in Montreal, beginning her career in high school teaching English and Biology. After some time out to raise her own children, she went back to working with children as a founding member of the Royal Victoria Hospital’s Daycare Center. She later became the Director of the University of Concordia Daycare on the Loyola Campus for a number of years. In retirement, she enjoyed substitute teaching in her local elementary school in Ormstown.
Indeed, retirement allowed her to pursue a wide variety of activities in her local community which vastly enriched her life. From playing the bagpipes (self-taught) in the Elgin & District Pipes & Drums to the Garden Club, Scrapbooking, Book Club, Yoga, travel (to Florida and many other areas of the United States as well as most recently a European River Cruise) and numerous other activities, including her many contributions to the annual Ormstown Fair.
Good friends and family filled Sue’s life, especially during her last year, where she battled cancer with courage and the positive outlook on life which she always exhibited. The family wish to thank the Huntingdon CLSC SAD Team, OMC’s Melanie Pinsonneault IPS and Dr. Krotecki, as well as Dr. Campbell and the Oncology Team at the Valleyfield Hospital for their empathy and exceptional care and support.
