March 4th 1952 – April 28th, 2021.
It is with profound sadness that I announce the passing of my beloved mother Susan Finn (nee Golding) at the age of 69 years, in the early morning hours of Wednesday April 28th, 2021, as I held her hand.
Susan was born in England to the late Sydney “Syd” and Evelyn Golding (nee Philips) and was the second oldest of four siblings. The family moved to Windsor, Ontario in 1955 and that remained home until 1973. Susan graduated from St. Clair College (Windsor) in Bio Science Technology and that led to mom’s career-long passion in Microbiology and Technical Specialty until retirement in 2018. During mom’s career, she was known for her incredible work ethic, energetic spirit, honesty, dedication to the sciences and highly regarded by all that knew her.
Susan and the late Denis Finn were married in 1973 for 42 loving years, building their life in Toronto and then moving to Bolton, where they lived for 27 years. They enjoyed golf together, listening to Jimmy Buffett and sharing a lifetime of laughter together.
Susan is survived by her two siblings Jennifer Allard (Tom), Michael “Perky” Golding (Sharpe Family), Jill Golding, the late Mark Golding and only daughter, Shannon (Sean Saliba). Mom and I had a once in a lifetime relationship, we shared everything together and are truly the best of friends. Mom, I am eternally grateful that you chose me and will miss you every day of my life, you have my heart. Mom is loved dearly by her son-in-law Sean and his extended family. Alias & Thunder, mom’s four-legged friends will miss their G-Maw greatly.
Susan is also survived by her loving partner James “Jim” Morgan. Mom met Jim at a special time in her life and they shared an instant connection. Jim and mom enjoyed travelling, boating and socializing with their many friends and family members. Mom was especially proud that she was now an official Floridian Snowbird. Jim, Jim’s family, friends and mom’s best four-legged gal Missi will forever hold mom in their hearts and remember mom for always being happy and light of Jim’s life.
Susan was affectionately known as Sue to many life-long friends and family and her infectious laughter could be heard for miles. Susan will always be remembered for her blonde spikey hair that was perfectly imperfect; her authenticity, tenacity and most importantly, her energetic love for life. Mom simply loved life and leaves behind a lifetime of happy memories with all of us that love her including many nieces, nephews, extended family & friends around the world.
Cremation has taken place. A joyful celebration to honour Susan’s life will be held later when we can all be together again. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a charitable donation in Susan’s name to any animal rescue organization or a charity of your choice.
