Susanne Elizabeth Raback
RABACK, Susanne Elizabeth (nee Maich)
August 11, 1975 – April 6, 2018
After a short battle with cancer, on Friday, April 6, 2018 at the Credit Valley Hospital at the age of 42. Sue was the much loved and loving wife of David Raback, adored mother of Samantha Maich and Catherine Gilmore, very special daughter of Robert and Sharon Maich, caring sister to Rob Maich and his wife Fiona, and Auntie Susi to nephew Robbie Maich. She also leaves her parents-in-law Mike and Lynn Raback, brother-in-law Lee Raback, sister-in-law Ann Raback and her partner Evan Johnston, and nephew Gordon Johnston. Her close extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins also mourn her.
Growing up, Susi (as she was known) was a water baby, swimming in the family pool, waterskiing, tubing, and jumping off the boathouse roof at the cottage. She was our navigator, boat driver, weatherman, and champion watermelon seed spitter. Sue was never happier than when she met Dave and settled into the small town way of life in Acton. She learned to garden and was very proud of her vegetables (all but the carrots). She and Dave together constantly made improvements to their home. She easily made many new friends and participated in all the neighbourhood events and volunteered at the fall fair and fundraisers. She was the ultimate cat lady and was never without at least one feline friend. Chunky and Buddy will miss her.
The family will receive friends at MacKinnon Family Funeral Home, 55 Mill St. E., Acton on Thursday, April 19, 2018 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A celebration of her life will take at place at Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 197, 15 Wright Ave., Acton, on Friday, April 20, 2018 from 6-8 p.m.
As per Susanne’s wishes, cremation has taken place.
The family would appreciate donations to the Credit Valley Hospital, Oncology Unit. The care she received there was incredible.
