MAXWELL, Susan Therese (nee Hayes)
With great sadness, we announce that Susan died Friday, February 20, 2009 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital at the age of sixty-five. She was pre-deceased by her parents, James and Winnifred Hayes of London, England, and is survived by her husband of 40 years, Allen, and by brothers Jim Hayes (Sheila) and Nigel Hayes (Susan), niece Karen and nephews Jim and Sam. Everyone who knew Susan knew that she loved animals, loved them in the way that would ensure she brought her dozen
cats with her when she and Allen moved from England to Canada in 1979, and that she would take them, or their descendants, with her when years later they moved to Mexico and back again. She was a member of Fur Bearers, the Cats Protection League, the SPCA and the RSPCA in England. Her other great love was flowers, especially dahlias and roses, and her most recent employment was at 18 Acres Nursery. She will be sorely missed by all her family and her many dear friends.
A Memorial Service will be held at Personal Alternative Funeral Home, 3070 275A St., Aldergrove, on Monday March 9, 2009, at 11:00 am.

I stop somewhere waiting for you. – Walt Whitman
