Suzanne Rosa (Fau) Creurer

CREURER, Suzanne Rosa (Fau) - Suzanne Rosa Fau was born December 20, 1926. She was the first child of Pierre and Leonie (Rallon) Fau - pioneers who had moved with their parents to Canada from France. She was born on the family farm 5 miles south of St. Brieux. Suzanne was later joined by her sister Lucienne to complete the Fau Family. Suzanne and her sister attended the Lacombe school with their neighbours. Suzanne went on to complete her final Grade 12 year in the community of St. Brieux. She became a teacher during the years of the Second World War after going to Normal School (Teacher's College) in Saskatoon, SK. Suzanne went on to teach at Little Moose School and Bjorkdale School. On July 20, 1949, Suzanne married Emile Creurer. They made their first home at the Pierre Fau's homestead. In 1959, they moved to their new home and yard one mile north of their first home. In this new house, their three children - Cecile, Jocelyne and Roger were raised. Roger and Janet (Allan) Creurer now reside on the family farm. Suzanne was always committed to her family. She never missed a baptism, a wedding, a graduation or a birthday if at all possible. Emile and Suzanne rarely missed the grandchildren's and later the great grandchildren's events. She was an avid fan of her family's sporting activities - hockey, basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball and slo pitch. She may not have always known all the rules, but she was there to cheer the team onto victory. She made some memorable road trips - to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Victoria, British Columbia, Everett, Washington and many parts of Saskatchewan to see the sporting and cultural activities of her family. Good and bad weather did not deter her from attending any event where her loved ones were front and centre. Suzanne was always focused on the family farm. She worried about the weather and the impact on a successful harvest. She was also proud of the Polled Hereford cattle herd begun by Emile in the 1950s. She looked forward to the days when all the combines from the three Creurer families would be in one field together. She was immensely proud that Roger carried on the family farming tradition. Suzanne was a long serving news columnist for the Melfort Journal. She was also a dedicated auxiliary member of the Chateau Providence located in St. Brieux, Sask. Suzanne was an avid supporter of the St. Brieux Museum and French cultural activities. Every year, Suzanne loved to help her family and friends prepare fruits and vegetables for the freezer or canner. Suzanne and Emile spent many hours and miles travelling the roads of Saskatchewan going to bull sales, 4H shows and just seeing the great Saskatchewan landscapes. There was very little bad weather that would deter them from heading out to a hockey game, an auction sale or a family event. Suzanne and Emile also took several bus holidays over the years and attended the World Fair in Vancouver with Emile's sister Celine Creurer. Grandma Creurer watched her three children and their partners, her 11 grandchildren and now her 15 great grandchildren grow and prosper. She looked forward to welcoming Jeremy and Carmen's new baby to the family in January, 2017. Grandma Creurer faced life's adversities with courage and faith. Suzanne and Emile lost an infant daughter - Rosemarie in 1955. In her last year of life, Suzanne struggled with her health. She was able to remain in her own home until the very last few months of her life through the significant support of her son Roger and his wife Janet, her daughter Jocelyne and partner Gary, her sister-in-law Jeanne Creurer and her two nephews Gilbert and Joseph Creurer. She fell in her home in August, 2016 and received care at both the Jubilee Lodge in Kinistino and the Chateau Providence in St. Brieux. Suzanne quietly slipped away on November 26, 2016. She would have been 90 years old on December 20, 2016. Suzanne was pre deceased by her husband Emile, daughter RoseMarie, parents Pierre and Leonie (Rallon) Fau, her sister Lucienne (Fau) McKinnon, sisters-in-law Emma (Creurer) LeGatt, Annette (Crozon) Creurer, Celine Creurer, brother-in-law Arthur Creurer, nephew Brian McKinnon and niece Lorette LeGatt. Suzanne is survived by her daughters Cecile (Murray) Hunt and Jocelyne Drapak (Gary L'Henaff) and son Roger (Janet) Creurer. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren - Jocelyne (Craig), Kelsey and Kolbe Cumming; Jeffrey (Cheryl), Hailey and Jarret Hunt; Stephen (Janelle) Hunt; Renee (Greg), Ava and Sara Claypool; Nicole (Derek), Connor, Allyssa and Jessica Pollock; Daniel (Jenna) and Halia Drapak; Terry (Janelle), Emmett, Hunter, Reid and Morgan Creurer, Michael Creurer, Jeremy (Carmen) Creurer, CeeJee (Don) Jones and Kyle (Ashley) and Rhett L'Henaff.
