Passed away peacefully with family by her side at the Élizabeth Bruyère Hospital in Ottawa on Monday, March 28th, 2022 at the age of 74. Dearly loved wife of Gary Tait. Proud mother of Jasmine (Peter), James, and Jackson (Irene). Loving grandmother to Gabriel. Predeceased by her parents, Surat Singh Batth and Bakhshish Kaur. Sue lived a life of caring for others, devoted to her family, patients, and community.
The simplest pleasures in life brought Sue joy. She loved to be outdoors, discovering the Ottawa Valley’s small-town gems and hiking trails, observing and sketching wildflowers and plants with medicinal properties, and tending to her eclectic garden. She cherished family travel, had a knack for whipping up flavourful fusion dishes, and read voraciously on just about any topic. Above all, she was motivated by her strong religious faith and love of family.
The family thanks the staff of Park Place Residence, the nurses and physicians at both the Civic and Élizabeth Bruyère Hospitals, and Dr. Alexis Twiddy for their compassionate care and support. For those who wish, memorial donations can be made to the Bruyère Foundation. Following cremation, a private memorial service will be held at a later date through Pinecrest Remembrance Services.
