Remembering Suzie Deston z”l

the destons

The loss of a beloved elder of our congregation has left many of us grieving. Suzie Deston had no direct family present in Victoria, so many members of our community came out to lovingly return her body to the earth from which we all come. A friend of Suzie’s, Bill Romaine, brought some photos of Suzie and her dear husband Avi taken on Mount Washington, in 2001. Seeing them, happy together is a lovely memento. May the memory of Suzie and Avi always be for a blessing. Below are another couple of pictures by which to remember Suzie.
