Suzanne Latta

May 24, 2024

The world lost one of its finest when Suzanne Mariette Latta, 83, passed away peacefully in her home with family by her side on May 24, 2024. She was diagnosed with cancer three years ago and true to her nature, battled with extraordinary strength, grace and dignity.

Suzanne was born on October 27, 1940 in Montreal, Quebec to parents Pauline and Marcel Boisvert and moved to Vancouver when she was twelve. She grew up the eldest of seven children and graduated from Little Flower Academy with a strong interest in theatre, going on to perform in a number of plays throughout her rich life.

She met the love of her life, Roger, at a church dance and they married shortly thereafter.  They started a family, eventually moving to Caulfeild in West Vancouver where they lived together for over forty years.

Suzanne was a career volunteer and dedicated her time to helping those most in need (Catholic Women’s League, Our Lady of Good Counsel, Domestic Abuse Services and Unicef).

A devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Suzanne was pre-deceased by her husband Roger and daughter Jacqueline, as well as her siblings Louise and Roland. She is survived by her sons Marc (Tara), Eric, Brian (Jessica), son-in-law Jim, grandchildren including Brendan, Josh, Sophie, Alexandra, Georgia, Jessica, Ethan and Lucas, and her brothers Claude, Maurice, Raymond and Denis.

A funeral mass and celebration of life will be held at St. Anthony’s Parish on June 18 at 11:00 AM.
