She immigrated to Canada in 1965. Mom dedicated her life to raising her children and grandchildren. It brought great joy and fulfillment to open her home to family and friends, always greeting them with homemade meals and love. She cherished spending time camping with family and relaxing with her dogs, Luca and Daisy. Thank you to all her homecare workers from WRHA and ILRC for providing loving care to mom in her home. We'd like to express our thanks to the firefighters and paramedics for their care and compassion. We'd also like to thank all our relatives and friends who have offered their prayers and support during this difficult time.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I just heard from Luis. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Seniora Laurinda was and will always be one of the most loving, caring, sweetest ladies to me. My fondest memory of her is how she always called me Diana and even after Lucy, Maria or Connie would correct her, she would always say that I looked more like a Diana than an Adriana. I liked that very much, but only from her. She will be very missed. Kisses and hugs to you all. - Posted by: Adriana Cabral (Friend/ Family ) on: Oct 05, 2017
