April 4, 1963 - November 2, 2015
Peacefully at her home after a steady decline from MS, Suzie has passed away. She was 52.
Suzie was predeceased by her father Ernst Keller in 2010 and mother Gisele in March, 2015. Suzie is survived by her brother Ernie (Joanne) Samson, Bailie, Benjamin; sister Nancy (Dan) Kieran, Cole; many special aunts and uncles, and many friends.
Suzie really enjoyed her time spent as a travel agent and had a passion for travel. Suzie had a very special bond with her Father. They shared a special trip to Germany and followed his displacement route to Canada, a trip which gave her such wonderful memories to cherish.
Suzie was such a special aunty who loved each of her nephews and niece. She loved spending time just being with them and gave them 100 percent of her attention. Whether it be making snowmen, swimming, or having tea parties, everyone who knew her knew that she genuinely found pleasure in these moments. She also had a deep love of animals, a favourite being her dog Sprouty. Suzie enjoyed and appreciated all of her close friends.
At her request, there was no funeral service. Suzie has asked that she be remembered as the person and friend she was to many.
Suzie has taken the ultimate journey to be free of her illness and join those she loves and cherishes!
If desired, donations may be made to the MS Society.

I am heartbroken.
Susan became a most cherished friend. She had planned to come visit Wally Baba and me, here in South West Florida over the holidays.
Susan loved being thoughtful, generous, and had a deadly sense of humor. I am sobbing now. The pain of not being able to talk to you is often unbearable. I love you and miss you dearly. The Walster does too.
Rest in Peace my sweet Suzie!!

Deepest condolences and prayers for peace .
Susan was a member of an M.S group I started online while taking care of my mom with M.S. she was a cherished friend and was a very warm compassionate lady.
I lost my mom to complications from the illness the morning after mothers day going on 3 years ago. My 8 year old 6 months later was diagnosed with cancer, and in the first few days she sent him a little stuffed dinosaur, she would call and sing to our twins, and we all just loved her. I was so sorry to hear of her passing .
May she ready in peace .

So very sorry to learn of the passing of Suzie. I have wonderful memories of her as a child and have often thought of you all over the years.

I remember meeting Susan many years ago. She had a zany sense of humor and we used to laugh for hours on end. She always had a way of lifting up my spirit.
Susan adored her father Ernie and always spoke of him in such a loving way. I am so glad to know Susan is reunited with her parents and Sprouty.
Susan made an incredible impact on my life and for that, I will be forever grateful. Thank you for being my wonderful friend Susan. I love you and will always miss you.
There is no more pain anymore sweetheart, rest in peace and be free.
