Obituary of Suzanne Stokes

Please share a memory of Suzanne to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.


STOKES, Suzanne Corinne (nee Geary) of Oshawa, passed away peacefully on New Year’s Day in her 87th year, at Oak Ridges Hospice in Port Perry.  The fourth of nine sisters, she was born in Peterborough in 1935 and deeply blessed by the loving example of her parents George and Georgette (Beausoleil).  A life-long reader, she imagined a rich family life for herself and her “twinkly-eyed” Irishman, Denis Michael Benedict Stokes, who predeceased her in 2002.  Together they wrote their story of abounding love and joy and humour.  She is survived by her grateful children Denis (Mary), Joseph (Cathy), Neil (Tina), Annette (Michael) and Seán (Carol), her seventeen grandchildren and their partners, and her twelve great-grandchildren.  She is also survived by her loving sisters and brothers-in-law - Rita, Georgette (Richard) and Denise (Robert) – as well as by dozens of nephews and nieces.  Our mother was a remarkable woman of great generosity and razor-sharp wit.  Though she will be dearly missed, her legacy will continue as her gifts of love continue to reverberate, and to sustain the lives of her many descendants.  Visitation and funeral for close family by invitation only.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Oak Ridges Hospice in Port Perry.
