Susan Solomon

SUSAN CHARLENE SOLOMON
Born July 22, 1957
Earned her heavenly wings May 3, 2021 after a brief illness at the Chatham Kent Health Alliance.  Susan attributed the respect and kindness she had towards others and her love of nature and animals to life lessons learned from her parents, James and Kathleen (Handsor) Solomon.  She appreciated being raised in a small community with her siblings Peggy Tomby (Albert), James Solomon, Patty Melo (Jorge), Paul Solomon, and Sherry Sims.  She loved her 3 nephews and 4 nieces and many cousins.  Susan enjoyed being a pet parent to Scott and Lucky. Susan’s career included many years of Medical Administration while residing in Toronto, Ontario.  She enhanced her ability to help patients by learning a second language to be an interpreter when needed.  She later earned another college diploma to enhance her computer skills.  Susan enjoyed passing  the time doing genealogy research and connecting with other like-minded researchers through various genealogical societies, including the Dresden Historical Society.  Susan had a gentle, kind spirit and a heart for the less fortunate and therefore requested donations in her memory to Rock Missions in Chatham or to Diabetes Canada.
A visitation time will take place on Friday May 7, 2021 at Life Transitions (397 McNaughton Ave West at Baldoon) from 11:00 am to 12:45 pm.

  22. So shocked to hear of this very sad news. We just had a brief chat one week ago. As a childhood friend, Susan was a source of levity and laughter. We would sit for hours joking while she painted her beautiful nails sapphire blue and emerald green. As adults, we found each other online and would exchange ancestry details or make inquiries. I found Susan so knowledgeable and professional, that I had hoped to collaborate with her to create a book, archive or exhibit. We shared an interest in history, and I will miss You Susan for your remarkable memory and details. My Sincerest Condolences are extended to the Solomon, Handsor and related families. May the Lord Almighty reward you with big beautiful Sapphire Blue and Emerald Green Wings! ….Ascend and Fly High! my sweet friend! … Fly High! sweet, gentle Susan!

  37. My thoughts are with you the Solomon family today. Susan was such a quiet and sweet person. Her father and I were first cousins. That makes us first cousins, once removed. Even though we are both from the Dresden area, I did not get to know her well until we met up here in Toronto. We both had a love of genealogy/family history and we shared the Richardson-Sammons/Simons research. At one of the earlier reunions in Mitchell Bay with the original Highgate-Richardson group, we along with a Handsor cousin decided to have a Toronto meet-up, once a year, of folks originally from the Chatham-Dresden-Wallaceburg-Windsor area who then lived in the Greater Toronto Area. It was good for several years. We traveled to powwows in NC and Delaware in the States looking for our roots and met some fabulous people. I will never forget one trip to one powwow in NC where our connecting flight was in New York City at Idlewild Airport. There was a storm farther south and no planes were allowed out until the next morning. All local accommodations had been quickly snapped up, so we stayed up all night in the airport entertaining each other. She liked going to movies, in particular, “The Fast and the Furious” ones with her favorite Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. We would always have a bite and a soft drink either before, during, or after the movie. It was loads of fun. I will miss Susan’s friendship and her big smile. Rest In Peace, dear Susan.

  38. Susana – Brother-in law Jorge just wanted to say I am really going to miss you. The time we used to be all together, Joao, you, me and Patty – I used to have a very good time. I remember you talking Portuguese with Joao – really amazed me and the times we used to go visit my mom and you talked Portuguese with her really nicely. God Bless you – be in heaven with your father and mother. Love you. Jorge
