Susan (Sue) Stuart

STUART, Susan (Sue) - 1946 - 2019 It is with great sadness that the family of Susan Stuart announces her passing on 3 January 2019 at the age of 72, resulting from a long battle with multiple myeloma. Predeceased by her parents, John & Flora (nee Cockburn) Stuart, Sue leaves behind her daughter Heather & her partner John, grandchildren Ryan, Jack and Kate, her nephew Calum & his partner Mel, brother Peter & sister Ruth & her partner Peter, plus her many dear friends and extended family in Sudbury, North Bay, Hamilton and well beyond. For over 36 years Sue was involved with education as a classroom teacher and maths consultant with the Rainbow District School Board. Sue was a life member of Ontario Association of Maths Educators (OAME) with a special love of the Math Olympics. From 1990 to 2004, Sue worked at Nipissing University as a professor, researcher, and speaker. As a respected authority on mathematics education, Sue developed and authored many teacher resources, work books and textbooks in math curriculum development. She worked with Nelson Publishing and educators in many provinces of Canada. With Nipissing University she provided teacher training in South Africa, Anguilla, Montserrat and Bhutan. Sue’s volunteer work was extensive. She was a proud member of the Sudbury Teachers Lions Club where she held many executive positions. She was passionate about the Lions Quest program that linked education to values. Sue was awarded the Melvin Jones and Lions Quest Fellowships. Susan became a member of CFUW Sudbury and quickly became a dynamic member of the club. She was a member of the Revolving Book Club, the Dining and Wine Tasting clubs. Sue’s eclectic interests and life experiences brought together family, friends and strangers alike through food, travel, a glass (or 2) of good wine, books and story telling. She was never happier than when she was at Joe Lake on a warm summer day. Sue was devoted to her family and her friends. Supporting and celebrating their successes gave her great pleasure. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, but her impact on so many lives will be felt for generations to come. We would like to extend our thanks to the palliative care staff at Health Sciences North. A memorial service will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, 1553 Weller St, Sudbury at 2pm on Friday 18 January 2019 and a celebration of Sue’s life will be held in Sturgeon Falls in the spring.
