KNOX, Susanne (Downard) - It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our amazing mother, sister, aunt and grandma, Susanne Knox.
At age 62, Sue passed away on May 30, 2020 at Trillium Health Partners Mississauga Hospital after battling against cardiac disease.
Born in 1957, she was the second youngest of eight children born to George and Dorrian (Gane) Downard. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, June Hartley and James Downard.
She is survived by her son Adam (Amanda) and grandchildren Maverick and Lillyanne, as well as her daughter Ashley.
She will also be sadly missed by her siblings, Margery Timmons Welch, Robert Downard (Joy), Leonard Downard (Roberta), Kenneth Downard (Karen) and George (Skip) Downard (Valerie), as well as her former spouse Rand Knox.
She is also survived by her many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and great great nieces and nephews.
Family always came first and meant so much to her. She was her happiest when together with others and watching her family grow. She was liked and loved by many. Numerous friends and extended family who have known her since childhood, as well as neighbours and co-workers, will all have an empty space in their hearts.
Her favourite place to be was at her second home; her trailer in Bobcaygeon. Spending almost every summer there for most of her life.
She was a strong willed, loud and loving, matriarch type woman. She was well known as everyone's Aunt Sue, and was even a second Mom to many.
She was a loving mother to her children, and it will be hard for them not having her as a part of their lives. We miss her already and will never forget the mark she’s made on this family.
A Celebration of life will be held at a later date.
