SUSS, Lois Joan (nee Weedmark) – Passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with multiple health issues at Peterborough Regional Health Centre on March 6, 2013 in her 80th year. Cherished wife of Hans for 56 years. Beloved mother of Sara Suss and her husband Alin Lutz, and Kurt Suss. Dear grandma of Nicole and Konrad. Predeceased by her parents Emily and Eric Weedmark of Beachburg, Ontario and her brother Howard (survived by wife Orysia). Lois will be sadly missed by her extended family and cousins. Lois and Hans were devoted lifelong partners. They married in 1956 and continued to pursue their respective careers; Lois as an elementary school teacher for the Peterborough County Board of Education who worked for 30 years, teaching young offenders at the Peterborough County Jail and students with special needs and Hans at Trent Glass Limited Peterborough, Plant Superintendant. They enjoyed life to the fullest and after retiring at age 55, embraced a lifestyle of sailing in Ontario, the Atlantic and Intracoastal Waterway aboard the 'Konstanz' (out of Cobourg Yacht Marina). A heartfelt thanks to the staff at Empress Gardens and the Peterborough Regional Health Centre who cared for Lois, especially those of the Dialysis Unit. She spent her later years with husband Hans at the 'Empress' where they had danced in their youth in the ballroom.
