It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of our mother, sister, grandmother, aunt & cherished friend Susan Stepenko. After a lengthy and astonishing battle
with cancer she passed away peacefully in her home with her family around her at the age of 70 years.

She will also be sorely missed by her countless friends, former coworkers and fellow members of Sherwood Park Alliance Church.
She was predeceased by her beloved husband Barry Stepenko; parents Joseph & Emily Mandick and niece Lesley MacGillivray.
Susan was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. She loved to travel and stay active in all seasons. She loved skating, downhill skiing, boating & water skiing. She was a faithful friend to many and the center of her family. She always helped others in any way she could at any time they needed. She was an active member of the widows group at her church in recent years. Her passion was for people. She was generous and kind and she loved to gather together often with
those she loved.
A private memorial service will be held on October 5, 2021.
