June 23, 1965 - October 24, 2017
It is with much sadness and heartbreak that we announce the passing of our daughter, sister, aunt, wife, mother and grandmother Sue Ann Petzke Stratford Bruyere in Kamloops, BC on October 24, 2017 at age 52. Left to mourn her are her husband Marc, son Brody, daughter Taylor (Caleb), granddaughter Frankie, sister Ruth (Jeff), brothers Dan (Laurie), Ed (Celina), and her two moms Judy and Marie. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins, nieces and nephews both here and in Ste. Sault Marie, ON. She was predeceased by her father Robert Walter Petzke.
Sue was born in Sault Ste. Marie, ON and moved with her family to BC in 1981 when she was 15. She graduated from Kamloops High School. She was a vibrant fun loving person who spent many years working at the Casino. Her last job was with Market Fresh Foods in Dallas.
A heart surgery three years ago left her with major health issues including pulmonary hypertension and congestive heart failure. Although her health was compromised for the past three years she managed a trip to Ontario to see her sister and her father, she saw her daughter married and her granddaughter born.
A celebration of Sue's life will be held at Kamloops United Church, 421 St. Paul Street, Kamloops on Saturday October 28th at 1 pm. The Reverend LeAnn Blackert will officiate. The family invites you to come and share special stories and a time of remembrance with them.
Arrangements under the direction of First Memorial Funeral Service, Kamloops, British Columbia.
