GULENCHYN, Susan (Sue) Linda
June 26, 1952 — January 4, 2019
Passed away peacefully with family and friends by her side on January 4, 2019 at Central Okanagan Hospice House at the age of 66. Sue was born June 26, 1952 in Toronto, Ontario. She is survived by her sons Thomas and Colin, daughter-in-law Sara, grandson Tristan, her brother Ron Basarab of Winnipeg MB, and her sister Karen Mellor (Don) of Kelowna BC. She is also survived by her mother-in-law Mary Gulenchyn of Vernon BC, her brother-in-law Rick Gulenchyn (Sandra), her brother-in-law Randy Gulenchyn (Nicole), her sister-in-law Linda Shea (Gord) and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her husband Ken Gulenchyn, father William Basarab and mother Marcelline Basarab. She was raised in Toronto and later moved to Winnipeg where she met her loving husband Ken. They were married on March 3, 1973 and moved to Kelowna in 1975.
Sue loved life and couldn’t wait for the next adventure. Her caring nature and persistence in putting others before herself only made her more loved by family and friends alike; their lives were enriched immeasurably by her compassion, integrity and strength of character. She will be sadly missed; however, she goes now to join her husband—two finer human beings never existed.
Donations in Sue’s memory may be made to Central Okanagan Hospice House or BC Cancer – Kelowna.
