June 19, 1944 - July 14, 2011

Susan Louise Bepple of Kamloops passed away on July 14, 2011 at 67 years of age.

She is survived by her loving husband and soulmate Terry, daughters Leslie (Paul) and Christine (Mike) ; grandchildren Avery (Landon), Allan (Colette), Cassie and Mitchell; great grandchild Tristen, brother Dave, sister Stephanie and an extended family of nephews and nieces, in-laws, dear friends and kindred spirits. Susan was predeceased by her mother Linda and her father Robert.

At the age of 2, her family returned to Vancouver and Susanís early years were spent in Vancouver and Victoria. Her father renovated and sold numerous houses as a sideline to his job with a national supply company. By the time Terry and Susan built their dream home in Rayleigh, it was the 50th house she had lived in! The house and garden were her design and every detail showed her meticulous planning. More remarkable is that she could recall the layout and floor plans of every home she had lived in. No surprise that she briefly had a career in real estate. She excelled as a wife, mother, businesswoman, home renovator and all purpose event organizer. No one was safe from the wise counsel and advice she offered. Susan was a lively, intelligent, engaging and loving person who remained young at heart. Through years of difficult and complicated health problems, she remained optimistic about her future and full involved in the lives of her family.

Her family and friends were the center of Susanís universe.

Susanís life will be celebrated with a Funeral Service at 2:00 pm on Saturday, July 23, 2011 in St. Paulís Anglican Cathedral, 360 Nicola St., Kamloops, with Reverend Isabel Healy-Morrow officiating.
