Obituary of Susan Theresa Watts
Heaven has gained another beautiful voice for their choir. Susan Theresa (nee Aylward) Watts, 80, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 02, 2022 in Stettler, Alberta with her daughters Janice and Bonnie at her side. Born in Skinner’s Pond, PEI, Sue was the third of eleven children of Charlie and Mildred (Murphy) Aylward. Sue was very musical and loved to sing and play guitar. She had a performance on the CBC television show Countrytime in the early 70s. She was lead singer in the band Midstream in PEI and sang in her church choir. Brian and his wife Betty Anne helped Sue realize a lifelong dream in recent years by co-writing, producing, and recording her original songs whenever she visited Ontario. Her music lives on through the digital platforms of Spotify and YouTube and others. She was a very devout Christian who studied the bible daily. Sue and Ralph were carefree souls who loved life and shared many laughs throughout their long and happy marriage. Ralph loved to drive and Sue loved to go anywhere with him. She loved babies and was nanny to several children, and in her and Ralph’s semi-retirement they were caretakers at a church and several condos. Although both were born in PEI, they lived much of their lives in Nova Scotia and Alberta. Ralph and Sue were blessed with much support from Bonnie and Vince in their last few years.
Sue was the loving mother of Brian (Betty Anne), Janice MacCormac (Dennis), Wayne, Carol MacKinnon (Fred), and Bonnie Myers (Vince). Nana to Erin Roberts (Tom), Tyler Roberts (Charlotte), Nicholas Watts, Amanda Banziger (Martin), Miranda, Ariel, and Paige MacKinnon, David (Alexandra), and Matthew (Holly) Patterson. Great grandmother of Jenna, Alexis, Dominic, Lincoln, Landon, Noah and Luke. Sister to Gerard, Noel, Ron, Vera Worrell, Roy, Eddie, Pat, and Glen. Sue was predeceased by her husband Ralph, parents and her older sisters, twins Sister Myrna Aylward and Irma McQuillan, as well as sisters-in-law Angie, Jane, and Marion Aylward plus all of Ralph’s brothers and sisters and their spouses. She was also predeceased by son-in-law Dean Cook and by Tom Krivoguozovs, who became like a son. Sue was also loved by many nieces and nephews and Ralph’s large family.
Sue’s family would like to express their heart-felt thanks to the staff at Pioneer Place and Alix Crescent Cottages in Points West in Stettler, in addition to Dr. Chapman and the nursing staff at Stettler Hospital in Alberta.
Memorial to take place in PEI at a later date.
