It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Susan Elizabeth Bradley (née Lounsbury) on July 20, 2020 – a cherished mother, grandmother and sister.
Predeceased by her parents Mackenzie and Marion Lounsbury of Deep River.
Survived by her sons Jordan Kelly of London, Ontario and Lucas Bradley (and Lucas’s wife Corey) of Kincardine, Ontario.
Sue had two grandchildren, Jaxon and Mackenzi, who were the loves of her life.
Also survived by her only sibling, Nancy Lounsbury of Deep River.
Sue is greatly missed by her dog Emma, who was her partner in all things dog and a constant companion who kept all her secrets.
Sue was employed as the manager of Alia n TanJay in Pembroke.
She was born in Deep River, Ontario on May 14, 1953. She attended Key’s Public School and Mackenzie High School in Deep River. She then attended McMaster University in Hamilton Ontario and was a regular at the Downstairs John.
Shortly after graduating from university, she moved to Kincardine and was a huge community supporter there. Sue was an integral part of the Scottish Festival, Fishing Derby and Chamber of Commerce in Kincardine for many years. She lived in Kincardine most of her adult life, returning to Renfrew County approximately five years ago and lived in Pembroke.
Sue always said the best job she ever had was as a marriage officiant; she loved the romance, sentiment and joy of each ceremony. Sue loved to garden, collect antiques and putter at home. She loved the sun and the beach and was always closely monitoring the weather in summertime. Sue was so easy to like and love; she had a great sense of humour and loved to laugh. She had a warm and generous heart. She also sang along to the radio at all times, which was a source of annoyance to her boys.
Her family has been totally overwhelmed by the response to her death – she was remembered by people from high school, university, Kincardine, Deep River, Pembroke and everywhere in between.
Sue was not somebody who embraced old age. She did an amazing job of keeping the years at bay. She loved life, we love her and she will always be remembered and missed.
The loves of Sue’s life was her grandchildren. Because of that, the family has opened a trust account for their education. If you wish to make a memorial donation, please e-transfer to
email@example.com or make a donation through the Malcolm Deavitt and Binhammer Funeral Home in Pembroke (www.mdbfuneralhome.com).
Sue will be cremated as she did not wish any service or formality. She left specific directions for her ashes. The family is thinking of some kind of beach get-together in Kincardine with a date yet to be set, and perhaps a small get-together in Deep River at a later date.
“Night, sleep tight and love you oooooodles!”
