1940 – 2020
Suzanne went to be with her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ in the early hours of August 7th. She was born in the opening years of World War II, in Salisbury England, to Charles and Christine (Noyce) Parsons. Even as a young child, Suzanne had vivid memories of the war over England and its aftermath. At school age, Suzanne excelled in music – piano, organ and vocal, going on to earn a degree from the School of Church Music at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Salisbury. Although she thoroughly enjoyed music, her love and profession was nursing which she pursued both in the clinical field and as a nursing instructor. She emigrated to Canada in 1969 and continued her hospital nursing career in Alberta.
Suzanne’s deep faith in the Lord carried her through life’s struggles including the last years of failing health. She always had a listening ear, caring heart for others and blessed many with her friendship, encouragement and prayers.
Suzanne is survived by her sister, Rosemary (Arthur) Vincent, and nieces and nephews in England. She was predeceased by her parents, two brothers, and one sister.
Interment will take place at St. George’s Church in Salisbury England.
If friends so desire, contributions in Suzanne’s memory may be made to the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home in Wetaskiwin, Alberta (4702 Northmount Drive, Wetaskiwin, AB T9A 3T3). Her friends here and her family in England would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the staff for all their kind care for Suzanne these past six years.
