Susan was born in Helsinki, Finland and came to Canada at the age of three with her parents, Elin and Oliver Nygard.
She has lived in the Thunder Bay area her entire life (first Devon Township, then Cloud Bay and finally Northwood). Susan met and married William (Bill) Randall in 1950, who died before her in September 1986. Susan is survived by her brother Rodney Nygard and four sons – Brian (Carol), Stan (Heather), Larry (Kathy) and Randy (Michelle) . ), seven grandchildren – Carrie (with Birk Murphy), Kristie (with James Barwick), Jason Travis, Cody, David and Curtis, and two great-grandchildren – Jacob and Myah, all live in Thunder Bay. Susan also has many close friends whom she considers family.
Susan’s main interests are family, family and friends. Susan was an extremely attentive housekeeper, hard worker and good cook who was always there for her family. Sue is always a very hard worker and doesn’t rest until all the work is done. Great memories will remain with family and friends forever; the cottage in Devon (property originally owned by her parents), Susan and Bill’s cottage at Eagle Head Lake, family gatherings and coffee gatherings. During the course of her declining health, and especially over the past year, Susan has received much kindness, help and moral support from family, friends and neighbors.
In the final months of her life, extra love was given to her by the wonderful staff at Champlain House in Roseview Estates. On behalf of Susan, her family would like to thank all the well-wishers for taking care of her during this most difficult time. Susan would also like to thank the doctors and medical staff who have helped her cope with her illness over the years. At Susan’s request, a small private service will be held in the near future, followed by a private funeral. Friends can make memorial donations to PAWS (as Susan has always had a weakness for animals) or to the Northwest Ontario Regional Cancer Center if they wish. Condolences can be expressed online
