Suzanne "Tanna" Catherine (Fay) Rutledge

April 18, 1938 ~ July 21, 2019 (age 81)

Rutledge, Suzanne “Tanna” (Fay)

Passed away South Muskoka Memorial Hospital, Bracebridge, on Sunday, July 21, 2019. Born in Toronto in 1938, Tanna grew up in Weston, ON. At the age of 18, she started working at the then named Toronto International Airport as a Customs Broker until her retirement.

She was happily married to Paul for 44 years and together they shared several homes in Bracebridge, Orangeville, Burlington, and Gravenhurst.

Tanna was a wonderful mom to Cathy (Tony), and Bernie (Natalie). The apples of her eye were her 4 grandchildren, Erin, Jamie, Zach, and Ellie – each dearly loved and doted on.

Tanna loved her home and garden, her church, her friends, and a good party. Words cannot express how much we will miss her.

So, to Tanna, Mom, Nanny – Cheers! Until we see you again!

We will have a Celebration of Life in Tanna’s honour on Wednesday, August 7, 2019 at St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church at 11 a.m. with reception to follow.
