Susan grew up on a farm near the Boreal Forest in Saskatchewan. At an early age, she developed a love for drawing, gymnastics, horses, and being outdoors with nature. After graduating from Business College, she moved to the North West Territories and worked as Travel Agent at Northland Travel. After a year passed by, she missed her family and living on the prairies. Then she decided to move back to rural Saskatchewan in 1990.
At the age of twenty-six, she met her future husband, John Ewert, who was the owner of a kitchen manufacturing company in Alvena, Saskatchewan. After a few conversations, she discovered they had both worked as Visual Merchandisers for the Eaton’s Department store in the 1980s. Then after having a cup of coffee with John, she discovered they had both shared the same Supervisor, Al Dyck, even though they had both worked in different cities. She was delighted to find out he was the display person who had set up the ‘Once Upon a Christmas’ display at the Eaton’s store in Saskatoon. In addition, John worked on the display until it was dismantled, and moved to a museum in Saskatoon. You can see the display during the Christmas season at the “Western Development Museum" in Saskatoon.
