With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Susan Dorothy Lockwood. Susan’s zest for life touched so many people, her kind and thoughtful soul will be missed and remembered by many lives that she touched.
Susan was born on April 27, 1954, in Port Arthur, Ontario. As a young girl Susan was very involved in swimming, dancing, and spending summers at Two Island Lake with family and friends. She attended the Branksome Hall at the National Ballet during her high school years. Susan graduated with two degrees - one from York University and one from Windsor University in Dance and Business. She then followed her heart in 1982 when she married Lynn Sorensen. They moved to Denver, then Dallas, where she established a successful career in media. In 1996 Susan decided to move home - home was where her heart was. Shortly after her return home, she married her first childhood friend, John Lockwood and started a new career as Director of National Sales with Dougall Media until her retirement in 2020.
Susan’s bright smile and laugh lit up any room she entered. She never went halfway on anything she loved, and her kindness and generosity will be remembered by many. This includes her relationship with Jose and her many friends. She loved entertaining, skiing, golfing, walking, travelling, and spending her summers at Two Island Lake.
Susan will be greatly missed by her fiancé Jose De Sousa, her sister Jane Swalwell, her nieces Peatrice Bristow and family and Dana Swalwell and family, brothers-in-law Don Nichol and Harley Hughes, Lynn Sorensen, Chico and many close friends and cousins.
Susan was predeceased by her parents, Jessie and Wilbert Fallis, John Lockwood, her sister Elizabeth Nichol, sister-in-law Jan Hughes, brother-in-law Tom Swalwell, John Sr., and Jean Lockwood (Hogarth).
Susan has been cremated and a private celebration of life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Northern Cancer Fund would be appreciated.
