MASON, Susan - Passed away peacefully in her home in Blenheim Ontario on June 25th, 2020 in her 66th year.
Beloved wife of James Mason and mother of Andrew Mason (and wife Jessica) of Fairfax Virginia, Alex Mason (and wife Jessica Pigeon) of Toronto Ontario, and David Mason of Kitchener Ontario.
Loving sister to Judith, Bill, Mary, Brenda, David, and John, as well as loving favourite aunt to 18 nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her siblings Samena, Jim, and her father Benjamin Holdsworth. She is survived by her mother Annabel Sissons. Susan Mason will be remembered as a passionate pianist, devoting her life to the instrument as well as teaching students for over 30 years. She was a warm and kind person, and many students can recall her gentle way and approach in her teaching. She was a loving wife to James Mason, and famous in the family for her generosity, home-made baked goods, and care for all. She cultivated a lifelong interest in writing, jogging, and taking care of her plants and garden. She will be missed dearly by all those that knew her. Funeral services will be held privately for close family, with a celebration of life to follow in the near future.

Sue was my piano teacher. We had many good conversations. I considered her a friend and she will be sorely missed.

Condolences to the Mason & Holdsworth families.
I grew up with cousin Sue and will always remember her for being a loving and caring person.
I recall her carrying around a cello at Uni. Guess the piano came later?
Our thoughts are with you all.
Love from the Kennedys in Australia

I was shocked and saddened to learn of Sues death. Sue and I were dear friends during the 70s and 80s. We drifted apart over the years but enjoyed reconnecting on social media the past few years. So sorry that our paths will not cross again as we had both hoped. My condolences to her sons and to the Holdsworth and Sissons families.
