Susan (Sue) Stultz, 71, of Riverview NB, passed away peacefully on April 8, 2024. Born in Moncton, she was the daughter of the late E. Garfield and Freda (Sherwood) Hicks.

Besides her husband of over 53 years, Bruce, she will also be deeply missed by daughters Misti Murray (David) and Mandi Groslouis (JP); grandchildren Joel and Julie Murray, all of Riverview NB; sisters Karen Price (Richard) of Moncton NB; Brenda Bourquin (Brian) of Victoria BC; and Ellen Mullin (Hal) of Riverview, NB; brother Mark Hicks (Trudy) of Yellowknife, NWT; brother-in-law Rocky Stultz (Claire) of Riverview NB and several nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, Sue was predeceased by her brother Lowell and sister Linda both of Victoria BC as well as an infant brother and an infant sister.

Sue wore many hats- the Turkey Lady, Legion member, Children’s wish giver and even multi award recipient.  However, to her family she was an amazing wife, the best mom and an awesome Baba.  Sue loved her family fiercely.  She was always first in line to help, support, encourage and love.  Her grandchildren were everything to her which was shown by the endless meals, treats, talks, and sleepovers when they were younger … even their friends call her Baba.  As soon as she heard that name you could see her melt with love.  Sue loved a good campfire.  Sitting with family around a fire was one of her happy places. There was undoubtedly a hotdog being roasted, stories of past adventures and that unmistakable laugh of hers which was contagious.

As a business owner of an Irving Mainway for over 25 years, Sue made many lifelong connections with customers, their families and the community around her.  It was one of these connections that the annual Sue Stultz and Local 999 Moncton Firefighters Association Turkey Drive was born.  Sue had a passion for helping people (including seniors and veterans) and her countless hours of volunteer work for the community in various capacities resulted in the presentation of several awards and acknowledgements.  Most notable are the Order of Moncton, the Muriel Fergusson Award, the Caring Canadian Award, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, the Paul Harris Fellow International Award, International YMCA Peace Medal, both the Queen’s Golden and Platinum Jubilee Medal, and the Friends of the Moncton Hospital Foundation wall "Friends for Life".  She was also featured as "Maritimer of the Week" by ATV.

Sue was proud to serve as MLA for Moncton West, Minister of Social Development and Minister of Government Services in Premier David Alward’s government.  She took her tenure very seriously and loved learning all she could so she could make a difference. 

Growing up in a large family, it would be later in life while reflecting back on her childhood, that Sue would truly realize the simple possessions/family bond people take for granted.... are actually luxuries in the eyes of others. Sue used those reflections to maintain the driving force that forged the road for her success and why she devoted much of her time in helping others.

To the many people who personally knew Sue, she remained not only honest but humble and was quick to give credit to those surrounding her in any given situation. 

The family would like to extend sincere thanks to Extra Mural and especially nurse Maxie for her tender special care and compassion to Sue.

Donations made to the Medical Imaging Department through The Friends of the Moncton Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by Sue.

Visitation will take place at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd, Riverview (869-2007) on Thursday, April 11, 2024, from 2-4 and 6-8 pm with the Royal Canadian Legion, Moncton Branch #6 holding a Memorial Service at 5:30 pm from the funeral home. A service celebrating her life will take place on Friday, April 12, 2024, at 11:00 am from the funeral home. For those attending, it has been requested by the family to minimize or refrain from physical contact.  The service will be live streamed and recorded.
