It is with great sadness that the family of Susi (aka Susanna) Puppato announces her passing in Kelowna, B.C. on November 23rd, 2018. Her time was taken much to soon at the young age of 60.
Susi will be lovingly remembered always by her mother Maria, sister Denise (Jack) Thomas, brother Bruno (son Michael, daughter Hayley) brother Walter, as well as her extended loving family through B.C. and in Italy. She leaves behind the friendship and love of numerous close friends and colleagues in Canada and abroad. She was predeceased by her father Mario.
Her family would like to extend a huge thank you to all the private practitioners and healers who she became personally involved with and who became friends over many decades. Thank you to the many doctors, nurses and supporting departments who attended to her while in Kelowna General Hospital, as well as to the many friends close to her for your words and messages of support and love

    So difficult to imagine Susi's passing. My childhood friend was an unflinching sounding board. After our disparate lives converged again in Kelowna, from a kinship a friendship grew and bloomed.
    Susi offered uplifting support and was the milk of human kindness to all beings who crossed her path.
    Susi's innate wisdom inspired the lives she touched, however delicately.
    Susi gave a lot of herself. Empathetic, mindful thought preceded her actions.
    An unheralded champion may have departed this earthly vale too soon but Susi is never far from my thoughts.
    A sad grateful heart envelops your memory Susi, as I compose my condolences.
    Je me souviens.

    To Mrs. Puppato and all of the family, I send deep-felt condolences but the sadness that I feel is difficult to put in words. It being the Christmas season makes me feel even more heavy-hearted because when Susi lived in Vancouver and I was in Victoria we would always catch up with one another when we returned to Kelowna for the Xmas holidays. Our catching up consisted in long walks through the snow and even longer talks, punctuated by much laughter. Susi was a special woman who always remained true to herself and she will always have a special place in my heart. Ciao, cara amica. Mi mancherai.

    Maria and family,
    Very sorry to hear of Susi's passing. She was very helpful to me in the past and I was impressed how nice she was. A parent should never experience the loss of their child. I feel for you deeply.

    I worked at KSS and taught French to Susie many moons ago. I always have remembered her warm and friendly nature and I am saddened at her passing.

We remember the first time she came into Spin, 4 years ago, she bought us a plant just because she wanted to and that is how we will always remember her. Much love Sian & Colin and family xxx

    I was shocked when I read that Susi had passed. I had been thinking of her these past few months and wondered where she was. Susi was a wonderful friend in high school," locker mates" and just always had a great smile.
    My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    Dear Mrs. Puppato and Family, words alone cannot describe the immense sadness I felt when I read of Susi's passing. My younger sister Maria and Susi were classmates and close friends in high school, thus Susi was over at our house often. I remember a lovely, intelligent young woman with a mane of curly hair, beautiful sparkling eyes and a great sense of humor.
    May all of the wonderful memories that are etched onto each of your hearts console and comfort you during this time of sorrow. Holding you all close in thoughts and prayers as you grieve for Susi. Taken away much to soon, sending a battalion of angels to embrace and sustain all of you.
    Rest in Peace Beautiful Susi.

Her generosity and kindness seemed limitless. There is no question that she has left the world a better place than it was before.
