Age 64 of Eastern Passage, peacefully passed away December 12, 2016 at Arbourstone Enhanced Care Facility, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Born in Rothesay N.B She was a daughter of the late Kenneth and Phyllis Wyman.
She was free spirit and had a huge, creative imagination. As a young girl she often could be found galloping through her back yard with make-believe horses, or living out Anne of Green Gables stories. As a young woman at the age of 19 she moved to Nova Scotia and married Donald Jefferies in 1972. After Donald Jefferies passed away in 1983, Susan continued to dedicate her life to her children, Luke and Grace, and continued this dedication to her family following her marriage to Bruce Murray in 1984 and the subsequent birth of her two sons Saxon and Jesse.
Susan was always very active and dedicated to God and worked within the church community. Her faith was the pillar of her life, always. Community became an ever-growing theme in her life as she was dedicated to her work in human/social services. Her other passions included music, politics, current events, family and friends.
Susan is survived by her husband, Bruce Murray; sons, Luke Donald Jefferies, Saxon Bruce Wyman Murray, Jesse Ernest William Murray; daughter, Grace Phyllis (Scott Aldridge) Jefferies-Aldridge; grandchildren, Courtney Newton; Kyla, Luke Jr., Terrance and Alya Jefferies; Lorenzo and Lyrique Peach; Isabella, Ava and Jewel Jefferies-Aldridge; William Murray and Landen Murray; sisters, Sharon (Gordon) Cunningham, Jane Boyd; brothers, Nealon (Karen) Wyman; Michael (Ann Rickman) Wyman; Aunts, Doreen Roberts, Dot (Mac) White; many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Besides her parents, Susan was predeceased by her first husband, Donald Edgar Jefferies, her daughter, Stephanie Jefferies in infancy, and her brother-in-law, Carl Boyd.
