Susan (nee Spencer) de Jong February 8, 1949 - February 18, 2013 After a courageous 8 year battle with ovarian cancer, Susan succumbed to its ravages and died peacefully at home in the presence of her loving husband of 40 years John, daughter Lauren and son-in-law Ryan. Susan also leaves behind her parents Geoffrey and Elizabeth, sister Janet (David), brother Kim (Cathie), grandchildren Jackson, Brandon, and Nick as well as numerous nieces and nephews and other extended family members. Also sharing our grief are many, many wonderful friends. We would like to thank Dr. Peter Edmunds and the palliative care team as well as the oncology staff at Lions Gate Hospital. A reception to remember Susan's life will be held at Hollyburn Country Club, 950 Crosscreek Road in West Vancouver on Sunday, March 10, 2013 at 1:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Susan's name to Ovarian Cancer Canada.
