SUSAN LAFRENIERE

Susan Lafreniere, beloved wife to her husband of 47 years and best friend James (Skip), passed away peacefully on June 30, 2024, following a courageous battle with leukemia. Susan, as was her way, put everyone in her family ahead of herself, making sure we were all aware and at peace with her and James’ wishes. The family will never forget her strength and dignity, we will love her forever. Susan is predeceased by her mother Cecylia Bukala and her father Stanislaw Bukala. Susan’s parents bravely immigrated to Canada from Poland following WW2. Susan is survived by her brother Ed Bukala (wife Deborah) and her brother Tad Bukala.
