BOURK, Susan Elizabeth – Born April 7, 1953 in Red Deer, AB. Died June 6, 2022 in Moncton, NB. Loving mother of Tara (Rob) McKee (Pobihushchy). Proud grandmother of Michael and Anna McKee. Cherished sister to Russ (Lindsay) Bourk and Deborah Bourk (Michael Kelly), and beloved aunt to Zane Bourk (Martine Wright).

Susan showed talent as an artist in high school and thought of becoming an art teacher like her mentor. In the end, she studied fashion merchandising and went on to a successful career in retail before becoming a dental receptionist in Red Deer, AB. 

Sue loved being a mom, and she and her daughter drove a motorhome across Canada with their dear dog, Ryland, to visit places of interest and universities Tara might attend. Sue moved to Victoria, BC to be close to family and, with her brother’s family, spent quality time and cared for her father in his later years. 

When Tara started a family in Moncton, Sue moved to New Brunswick without hesitation. There she proudly supported her daughter and son-in-law in their careers. She often ferried her treasured grandchildren to her place for fun after school, never refusing to play goalie if asked, and happily attended countless soccer, football and hockey games. Snow days meant a picnic in Nana’s living room. And Sue always spoiled her beloved dogs, including her granddog Te’o. A faithful woman who thought of others before herself, Sue was a kind and generous grandma, mom, daughter, sister, aunt and true friend.

A Service to Celebrate and Honour Susan’s life will take place on Saturday, June 25, 2022 at 10:30 am from Mountain View United Church.
