CRANE, Susanna (Lefrense)
We, the family of Susanna Crane nee LeFrense, regret to announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and sister on Monday, July 31, 2017. Born in Isle Aux Morts, NFLD, she was the eldest daughter of the late John and Elizabeth (Lillington) LeFrense. She was an active member of St. Albans Church.
Mom was best known for her fabulous meals and baking goods, especially her chocolate chip cookies which she shared with everyone around her. She also enjoyed senior socials and playing shuffleboard with her many friends. Mom would sit in her rocking chair and knit for hours making sweater sets for all the new born babies or dishcloths for anyone who wanted them.

We cried when you passed away, We still cry today Although we loved you dearly We couldn’t make you stay A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us That he only takes the best.
