On December 29th Sue peacefully passed away leaving behind her partner Barry Meggs; her son Thijs (Holly) Vogelzang (Kees and Vander) ; and her daughter Tina (John) Vogelzang (Colby and Aiden). She also will be missed by her brothers and sister, as well as numerous nieces and nephews that always loved a family get together with Sue and her wonderful sense of humour.
Susan was born in Vermillion, Alberta on February 2, 1957 to Steve and Edna Charchuk. Her father was a banker, so she grew up in a number of small towns in rural Alberta. In 1972 the family settled in Calgary where she completed her education and then started working for the Royal Bank, a career that she loved and continued to work at until her sudden passing.
Sue had a passion for waterskiing and was a huge joy to her that she could participate in her children and later her grandchildren learning the sport. She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren.
A Celebration of Her Life will be held at a later date
In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to a charity of your choice. One of Sue’s charities that she would have loved to be supported was the Calgary Humane Society (https://www.calgaryhumane.ca/).
