Hnatiuk, Suzanne

It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that the family announces the sudden passing of Suzanne “Sue” Hnatiuk, 75 years, on Saturday, March 25th, 2023. 

Beloved daughter of late Elias and Simone Babin.  Loving wife of 51 years to Gordon Hnatiuk and cherished mother of Gordon Hnatiuk Jr. (France), dear grandmother “Baba” of Gerik and Greyson.  Dear mother of Darren Simpson and grandmother of Megan, Damien, Dante, Faith, Hope, and several great-grandchildren. Dear sister to Carmen (late Tony) Durbacz, Andy (Ramona) Babin, Carole (Michel) Mayer, Tim Babin and predeceased brothers Howard “Howie” and Michael Babin.  Dear daughter-in-law to Nick and Stella Hnatiuk, both predeceased and sister-in-law to Brian (Diane) Hnatiuk, Shirley (Kevin) McMaster and Nelson, predeceased (Sharon) Hnatiuk and John, predeceased (Evelyn) Choptain.  She will be greatly missed by her many nieces, nephews, and friends. Sue played a very special part in all their lives and will be remembered as a devoted, caring, and generous daughter, wife, mother, grandmother “Baba”, sister, aunt, and friend. Her passion for cooking and baking, and her love for simple pleasures made her family’s life richer. She enjoyed the company of her canine, Whisky, and loved boating and swimming at her home on Fairbank Lake.

A Private Celebration of Life will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to the Ukrainian Seniors’ Centre at 30 Notre Dame Ave., Sudbury, ON or call (705) 673-7404. You may also e-transfer to

  13. Our deepest condolences to the Hnatiuk family,

    You are all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

    Mrs. Hnatiuk was one of the sweetest, kindest women I’ve ever known. Her laugh was as infectious as her bubbly personality. She was an amazing baker who introduced me to her famous cookies that she referred to as “nuns farts” in English.

    Let her loving and gentle ways live on in everyone she has touched throughout her life until we meet again.

    Love Roddy and Carole Ornella & family.
