Our beloved Marie Wendy Sussums, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 18, 2023 at the age of 79.

Marie was born in Kamloops, BC to Stanley and Peggy Casey (nee Hope) and lived at Knouff Lake while Stanley served in the war. When he did not return from the war, Peggy and Marie moved to Chilliwack. Marie moved back to Kamloops in 1961 and proudly raised her family as a single parent. Marie is predeceased by her mother Peggy, father Stanley and daughter Tamara. She is survived by her son Shawn (Rocio), daughter Ginnelle (James), son Troy (Corey), grandson Teno and her pride and joy, granddaughter Eliana.

Marie will be remembered for being a helping hand to anyone who needed it. In earlier years, you could often find her at the Farmers Market working the information booth and helping vendors, or walking around town visiting friends and acquaintances. Even in later years when she could no longer provide a helping hand, she would always provide a laugh or an ear to listen. She loved her flowers and she loved her pets and, of course, anything shiny. She will be greatly missed by many.

The family would like to thank the wonderful, loving staff at the Hamlets. There are too many to names, but you know who you are. We are glad she had a secondary family to be with her when we could not.
