With heavy hearts we announce, Susan Elizabeth (Bernadette) Atkinson, passed away peacefully, after a courageous battle, surrounded by all the love from her family on Monday, August 29, 2022, just shy of her 50th wedding anniversary. Beloved wife and best friend of Harold. Loving daughter of the late Harry and Rachel Brown. Devoted mother to Shelley Farrow (Jeff), Rhonda Atkinson (Greg), Melissa Atkinson (Luke). Cherished Grandmother to Holly (Alex Hollinshead), Emily (Colton Smith) Chloe, Jamie-Leigh, Gwen, Taya, Tyse, and Thomas. Great grandmother to Addisyn and Harrison.

She will be dearly missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family, friends, neighbours and all who knew her.
Susan's passion in life was her family. She was always involved whether it was going to dance recitals, soccer games, walks to neighbourhood parks, trips to Zoos, Great Wolf Lodge, and simply checking in on a daily basis. Sue was the official family photographer/videographer and never missed the opportunity to capture a moment. She will always be remebered for humming while she pottered around the house and how she sang sing-a-longs with the kids. Her voice was gentle and always kind. She was love personified! Susan was a dedicated employee of the Welland County General Hospital for over 30 years. She was a devoted co worker and caregiver to many. Her presence will be missed everywhere in our homes, community and even on Facebook. She had a gift for writing the most beautiful messages. Mom always knew what was truly important.
