It is with grieving hearts that we announce the passing of Susan Kathyrn (Norman) Mandziuk, age 60, on September 2, 2019 at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre, after a very private and courageous battle with Cancer. She passed peacefully with her loving family by her side. Susan was born on October 24, 1958 at the old Yorkton Union Hospital. She was the last child born to Alvin Rendall Norman and Helen Audrey (Sagan) Norman. She started life on a farm, 1960 moved to the village of Orcadia, SK and then moved to the family farm in 1968, a mile and a half north of the stone Orkney Church and Orkney School. Susan started school at the Orkney "B" School in Orcadia, SK and then was bused to Simpson School and Composite School in Yorkton, SK. Next she attended the Yorkton Regional High School in Yorkton, SK and graduated in 1976; attended one year at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, SK, before enrolling at Kelsey Institute in Saskatoon, SK and graduated with a Certificate in Recreational Technology in 1979. She worked at the Yorkton & District Nursing Home in Yorkton, SK as a Program Director before starting her career at the Western Development Museum in Yorkton, SK in 1980. She enjoyed working there and made some life-long friends in the process. Then in 1989 she became the Manager at the WDM. She met these challenges and had a very successful career. Susan was active in sports in high school, a member of the Springside 4-H Homecraft Club, a member of Bethal 13 of the International Order of Job's Daughters, taught Sunday School at Westview United Church, for many years was the Secretary of the Orkney Historical Society, and a long time member of the Yorkton Fairboard and a member of the Yorkton Threshermen's Club. On September 21, 1991 she married her love and best friend, John Michael Mandziuk at Westview United Church in Yorkton, SK. They were blessed with two sons, Daniel John on April 14, 1995 and Matthew James on June 14, 2000. Susan and John enrolled both boys in sports and were their biggest, devoted fans and cheer leaders. Daniel and Matthew excelled in their chosen sports and brought home many awards, be it at school, city, provincial and inter-provincial levels. Susan and John made time for the boys and travelled with their sons across Canada and the United States to support their efforts.
Susan leaves to mourn her passing and to celebrate her life, her loving husband John and her beloved sons Daniel (Meghan) and Matthew; her mother Helen A. Norman of Yorkton; brother, Doug (Dianne) Norman of Yorkton; sister, Audrey (Ron) Sereda, nephew Jeff (Lindsay) Sereda, niece, Lindsay Sereda, all of Saskatoon; brother, Don (Kari) Norman, nephews Ryan and Reid Norman, all of Regina; and brother Kenneth (Karen) Norman of Yorkton. She cherished the little ones; her great nephew Carter and nieces Peyton and Chloe Sereda; and great nephew Colton Gaspers, all of Saskatoon. Also, cousins, Marj (Bernie) Wlock of Yorkton; Bob (Cheryl) Norman of Saskatoon; Donna (Glenn) Aitchison of Winnipeg; Gary (Marilyn) Mandziuk of Toronto; Michael (Bev) Mandziuk of Yorkton; Debra Mandziuk of Calgary; and their families. Predeceased by her father Alvin; grandparents, Adam and Katie Sagan, and Frederick and Suzie (Reid) Norman; uncle, Arthur Sagan; and mother and father-in-law, Helen and John Mandziuk. Susan was special and an important part of our family. She was the leader, the decision maker, the boss, the care giver, and the preparer at every occasion and family gathering. Hard working, caring and nurturing. A positive role model to all.

My family has worked and volunteered at the Yorkton Western Development Museum for many years, and we all knew Susan well. We've shared many laughs and eyebrow-raising moments together, and it's sad to see her go so young and with much still to contribute.
