Susan Virginia Self
August 9, 1951 ~ September 9, 2023 (age 72) 72 Years Old
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Susan Virginia Self on September 9, 2023, surrounded by family at Markham Stouffville Hospital.
Susan is survived by her husband and best friend, Kennedy; her daughters and sons-in-law, Andrea and Matt, Lisa and Matt; her brother and sister-in-law, David and Jackie; her nieces and nephew-in-law, Catherine and Shaun, and Sarah; her cat, Panther; and many friends and found family. She is predeceased by her parents Abram (Ab) and Virginia (Ginny) Martens.
Susan was a lover of family, holidays, animals, travel, and her community. In her youth she enjoyed playing the piano, gymnastics, and horseback riding. Throughout her career she was the first female manager at IBM, served on Uxbridge town council (Regional Councillor Susan Para) for 17 years (1989-2006), and ran her own business, the Vintner's Nook. In her retirement she enjoyed travelling, knitting, baking, scrapbooking, and volunteering through The Rotary Club. She served as President of the Rotary Club of Uxbridge 2008-2009.
Loving, fiercely independent, and iron-willed, she will be greatly missed.
An intimate Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Uxbridge-Scugog Animal Shelter and/or Oak Valley Health.
