Suzanne Doreen Staines (nee Ruddick)

February 25, 1948 – March 4, 2019
Born February 25, 1948 to Bruce and Shirley Ruddick (both deceased).

Suzanne passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on March 4th, 2019 at the Christine Morrison Hospice. She was a strong woman who faced many health challenges and would somehow come out smiling at the other end. She grew up in Websters Corners (Maple Ridge) and moved to Mission in 1970.

Predeceased by her husband and love of her life, “Harry” in 2011, she is survived by daughter Tracy (Drew) Kiefer, son Len (Judy) Staines, grandchildren Kaitlin, Alexis, Nolan and “lil” Kaitlyn, and her brother Craig (Gwen) Ruddick.

Suzanne was a much loved artist and also known for her kick-ass shortbread cookies at Christmas. She will be missed by many family and friends.

A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.

The family would like to express deep gratitude to the compassionate staff who cared for Suzanne in the Christine Morrison Hospice. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation in Suzanne’s name to this amazing facility.
