BLOOM, Susan

Susan Bloom
1936 – 2021

Susan died peacefully in her beloved Castle by the Sea on December 6th, 2021.

The flag on her dock has been lowered to half mast as friends and family remember this remarkable woman.

Her philanthropic work began as a young woman and continued up until her very last day – working to preserve and protect some of the most amazing wild places for future generations. She worked tirelessly and was genuinely committed to the protection of wildlife, their habitats, and the protection of ancient forests and oceans. During the past 35 years, she generously supported her Salt Spring Island community (often behind the scenes) – she will be missed immensely.

Susan believed strongly in grassroots organizing and worked to help small groups of passionate people do extraordinary things.

Over and Out Mama Bear.
