April 01, 1952 – December 31, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Susan Kemp, at her home, with her beloved husband Allan at her side.

After meeting the difficult challenge of late stage cancer and with the aid of the medical assistance in dying program, Susan chose this time for her passing. Ancient Celtic lore tells us that after Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year, comes the Birch Moon, a time of quiet reflection as daylight increases and we move toward a time of rebirth.

Predeceased by their only son, Morgan Kemp, Susan leaves to mourn her devoted, loving and supportive husband of 47 years, Allan Kemp, her daughter Lauren Kemp (Henrique Reginato) of Vancouver, brother-in-law Rob Kemp (Lisa) of Bolton, Ontario, mother Jeanne Dufresne, elder siblings Linda O’Brien and Frank O’Brien of Winnipeg, as well as Patricia O’Brien of Rock Creek, BC and their families.

No funeral will be held. Cremation has taken place.

Susan and Morgan’s ashes will be spread together along the banks of the Assiniboine River at an historic site in Charleswood near their family home.


Forever Young

May God bless and keep you always

May your wishes all come true

May you always do for others

And let others do for you

May you build a ladder to the stars

And climb on every rung

May you stay forever young
