Obituary of SUSAN BLOMQUIST
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Susan Jane Blomquist, who left us peacefully on the morning of November 7th with family and friends in attendance. Susan is survived by her three children, Stacy (Robbie), Christopher (Marie) and Michael (Shannon) and her grandchildren Jeffrey, Ashley, Taylor and Jordan.
Born in 1943 to Edward and Elizabeth Jane La Fortune, she married Robert James Blomquist in 1966. She is preceded in death by her parents, brother and her husband.
Susan worked in a variety of fields in her life but spent most of her time working in the insurance industry where she both had a fruitful career and built many lifelong friendships.
Susan maintained an active social life volunteering her time with both her church and many other agencies such as Doors Open Winnipeg, while still managing to make time for both friends and family.
A voracious reader and card player, Susan had many passions but perhaps none were so acute as her love of food, learning new recipes, helping others in the kitchen and of course, preparing food for others.
She was loved immensely and will be missed equally so.
Prayers will be said on Thursday, November 15 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, 5635 Henderson Hwy. Funeral Service will be held on Friday, November 16 at 10:00 a.m. also at the church.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation
