Susan “Sue” Elizabeth Bradley (Lounsbury) of Pembroke, formerly of Kincardine, died suddenly and unexpectedly, July 20, 2020. Cherished mother of her sons, Jordan Kelly of London, and Lucas Bradley and his wife, Corey, of Kincardine. Dear grandmother of Jaxon and Mackenzi. Also survived by her sister, Nancy Lounsbury of Deep River. Sue is greatly missed by Emma, the dog, who was her partner in all things dog, and who was her constant companion and kept all her secrets. Predeceased by her parents, Mackenzie and Marion Lounsbury of Deep River. Sue was employed as the manager of Alia n TanJay in Pembroke. Born in Deep River, May 14, 1953, she attended Key’s Public School and Mackenzie High School in Deep River. She then attended McMaster University in Hamilton, and was a regular at the Downstairs John. Shortly after graduating, she moved to Kincardine and was a huge community supporter there. She was an integral part of the Scottish Festival, Fishing Derby and Chamber of Commerce in Kincardine for many years. She lived in Kincardine most of her adult life, returning to Renfrew County approximately five years ago and lived in Pembroke. Sue always said the best job she ever had was as a marriage officiant – she loved the romance, sentiment and joy of each ceremony. She loved to garden, collect antiques and putter at home. She enjoyed the sun and the beach, and she was always closely monitoring the weather in summertime. Sue was so easy to like and love – she had a great sense of humour and loved to laugh, and she had a warm and generous heart. She also sang along to the radio at all times and that was a source of annoyance to her boys. Her family is totally overwhelmed by the response to her death – she was remembered by people from high school, university, Kincardine, Deep River, Pembroke and everywhere in between. Sue was not somebody who embraced old age. She did an amazing job of keeping the years at bay. She loved life, we love her and she will always be remembered and missed. Her grandchildren were the love of her life, and because of that, we have opened a trust account for their education. If you wish to make a memorial donation, please make an E-transfer to or you can make a donation through the Malcolm Deavitt and Binhammer Funeral Home in Pembroke ( Sue will be cremated and she did not wish any service or formality. She left specific directions for her ashes. However, the family is considering some kind of beach get-together in Kincardine – no date has been set. Perhaps a small get-together in Deep River will happen at a later date. Night, sleep tight, and love you oooooodles!
