Susan Le Tendre

The family of Susan May Le Tendre (nee Hewett) of Woodstock, Ontario is very saddened to announce her peaceful passing on Wednesday August 24, 2022, at the age of 77 years.

Susan was born in Toronto, Ontario on April 20, 1945 to W. Norman Hewett and Marjorie I. Hewett.  Susan is survived by her children James (Keiko), Julie (Will) and Jennine (Tony), grandchildren Halla, Nicholas, Rebecca, Lucas and Cayleigh, brother Geoff (Kathy), nephews Ted (June) and Kevin (Jennifer) and their families.

Sharing her passion for music with the Etobicoke Centennial Choir as an original and longstanding member, Susan was a talented vocalist.  Susan was also an active parishioner and chorister of Christ the King Anglican Church in Etobicoke, Ontario for several decades. Although she struggled with many health concerns over the years, which eventually limited her mobility, Susan cherished connections with many good friends.  She is missed!

  • My parents, Sylvia and Ray, and I were deeply saddened to learn of the death of your mother, Susan. Long time friends, my mum & your mom held down the alto section at Christ the King, side by side, for many years! I was born on Susan’s 16th birthday which coincidently just happened to be during a Thursday night Christ The King choir rehearsal! Many years later, it was your mom who invited me to join the Etobicoke Centennial Choir and introduced me to Barry Gosse, which proved to be some of the best years of my life. On behalf of my parents and from myself, you have my sincerest condolences. I hope that happy memories of your mother bring you comfort and joy in the years ahead, Julie, Jennine and James.
