Susan R. Cunningham, a member of the Lopez Island Quaker community, passed away on October 27, 2017. Susy participated in our Quaker meeting over a number of years accompanied at times by her children Chloe and Caleb, and prior to her passing, Susy’s mother Pat at whose home Quaker meeting was periodically held.
Susy contributed to the silence and depth of our worship, and when sharing vocal ministry her message often focused our hearts on the needs of others -- those suffering from poverty, oppression, or health challenges. These were challenges that Susy knew herself and fought bravely to overcome. And from that place she spoke with truth and deep emotion.
We grieve the sudden passing of Susan from this world. Our hearts are open to her children, family, and friends. We honor her soul and wish it a peaceful passage onwards.
A memorial meeting for worship for the remembrance of Susan will be held January 13, 2017 at Sunny Field Farm.
