July 20, 1948 - August 14, 2017
It is with sad regret that we announce the sudden and tragic passing of our beloved wife, mother, and grandmother Susan Elizabeth Berry (Medlyn) at the Health Sciences Centre on August 14th, 2017.
Susan graduated from Central Elgin Collegiate Institute (St. Thomas, Ontario) in 1967, attended London Teachers College, and later the University of Manitoba earning a degree in Education. For many years she taught music for the Seine River School Division where she enthusiastically introduced hundreds of students to one of the many passions in her life.
Susan’s other passions included tending to her flower and vegetable gardens, knitting and reading. She spent countless hours fund raising for the Bibliothèque Taché Library in Lorette Manitoba. Susan was predeceased by her mother Norma Medlyn (Styles), her father Ernest Medlyn and, brothers James and Philip, and loving son David. Susan is survived by her adoring husband Thomas, daughter Dana Dolphin and son-in-law Derek and their two adorable children Dayton and Dayvanee.
The family would like to thank Dr. Melanie Shell of the Health Plus Medical Centre and the dedicated staff of the Health Sciences Centre for their care during Susan’s rapid decline.
In accordance with her wishes there will be no ceremony. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Bibliothèque Taché Library, P.O. Box 16, Lorette, MB R0A 0Y0.
