Lindo, Susan

June 1960 - April 2024
LINDO, Susan Annette Lopez It is with great sadness that we announce Susan’s passing surrounded by the love of family and friends at her home in Ajax on Sunday, April 28, 2024. Susan was the beloved daughter of the late Dr. Randolph (Jack) Lindo (2009) and Yvonne Lindo(2022), both of whom she lovingly cared for in the later years of their lives. A treasured sister to Dr. Jacqueline Lindo and Maureen Lindo Gregory and a thoughtful and caring "Auntie Sue" to Damian Gregory (Blake, Kaleb and Scarlet), Stephanie Gregory, Nathan Jenkins and Travis Gregory. Susan was an acclaimed artist in various mediums (painting, wood carving, animation and sculpting). She was also an avid cyclist, hiker, swimmer, skater and cross-country skier. Always ready to help out and enjoyed gardening and all the wonders nature has to offer. Susan was born in Kingston, Jamaica W.I. on June 28 th , 1960, and attended Servite Convent of the Assumption and St Peter and Paul High Schools. She immigrated with her family to Canada in 1977. The family moved to Ajax in 1979. Her artistic talent started at an early age, and she attended classes at the Jamaica School of Art in Kingston and continued her art studies at the Central Tech Art School in Toronto. She was an honoured graduate from the International Academy of Merchandising and Design (Toronto) and Sheridan College (Oakville) in Classical Animation. Some may remember her snow sculptures on the front lawn of 16 Emperor St when we used to get a lot of snow in winter. She was also commissioned to create sand sculptures for summer festivals in Ajax and with the Ontario Power Generation (OPG) Tuesdays on the Trail in Pickering. Susan exhibited her artwork at several exhibitions at various galleries in the Durham area over the years. The very last award that She received was the Mayor’s Choice Award at the 56 th Annual Juried Art Exhibition at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery on April 25, 2024, very fitting for her wood carving titled - Hands of Hope. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Lakeridge Health Ajax Pickering Hospital, the Neurosurgery team headed by Dr Spears and staff at St. Michael’s Hospital and Susan’s Neuro-Oncology team lead by Dr Lim Fat at the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Hospital. We also extend our sincere gratitude to the INVIVO Company for their generous consideration of financial coverage for the Infusion Therapy that Susan received, also Home and Community Care Support Central East and her Palliative team led by Dr Vu, here in Ajax.
There will be a Funeral Mass held at St. Bernadette's Church, 21 Bayly St E, Ajax at 11:00 am Wednesday, June 12, 2024 followed by a Celebration of Life gathering at The Quaker Meeting House, 457 Kingston Rd W, Ajax.
