CORINNE RUMAK (LESOSKY)
Born: Apr 26, 1955
Date of Passing: Apr 04, 2021Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
April 26, 1955 - April 4, 2021
Corinne is survived by her husband Peter, sons, Mike, Sam (Leslie) and Dan (Britney), grandsons, Maxen, Arlo and Jack, her sister Terry and brother Phil, sister-in-law Joan, niece Jocelyn and nephew Dane. She is predeceased by her parents, Catherine (nee Apostle) and Casmer Lesosky and her mother-in-law Margaret Rumak (nee Paul). Corinne loved her family with every part of her being.
Corinne was energized by the people around her. She cherished her lifelong friendships with Janet, Marlene, Elaine, Cindy, Eva, and Annette; her friends, Bernice, Jim, Linda and Richard from the CNIB; and her special bond with family friend Allison. The full list of Corinne's friends is long and extensive, and every person on that list felt the warmth of her love.
Corinne met Peter at the Thalberg Hall on June 21, 1972 and from that day on they were inseparable. They loved to travel, and together they took trips to the East and West Coast of Canada, to the United States, and to the Yukon. Corinne went to Medjugorje, Yugoslavia with her two aunts, Sister Anne Olga and Auntie Anne. An experience of a lifetime, she witnessed the miracle of the sun spinning, walked up Apparition Hill, and attended mass at St. James Church. Corinne's family adventures to English Lake, Boundary Lake and Eleanor Lake are legendary, where she enjoyed the water, fishing, and late nights playing cards, watching the stars and listening to the frogs in the spring. Her cooking skills were unrivaled, creating delicious family meals with recipes known only to her.
Corinne was a whirlwind of enthusiasm and energy. She often said that it was her duty to help care for the residents at the St. Amant Centre where she worked for 28 years. Corinne was active in many groups within the local community. She especially enjoyed her time at the CNIB and the Stead Senior Group, where she participated in many group activities and met many close friends. She did not let her physical limitations slow her down, and she radiated generosity and kindness to everyone she met. One of her favourite sayings was "We have to help them".
Corinne will be greatly missed. Her earthly toils are over, and she is now travelling the universe. God bless you.
In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations to Junior Diabetes Research Foundation as an expression of sympathy.

The shape of family changes with the transitioning of our loved ones, but the richness of family is lasting and lives on in loving memories of members like Corrine. It was always comforting to get news of her boys and their lives as well as other family members as she shared with us welcome news. Her beauty and gentle spirit have left a void in many hearts, I imagine. My wish for Peter, Michael, Daniel and Sam as well as their partners and children and Terry and Philip is a comfort in remembering and passing along the joy in having shared in the good times through the years with Corrine. Blessings and Love to you all. - Posted by: Georgette Balicki Blair (Cousin) on: Apr 20, 2021

To Peter and family, We are deeply sorry for the loss of your dear Corrine. Wherever a beautiful soul has been, there is a trail of beautiful memories. Memory Eternal. - Posted by: Karen & Ken Hlady (Friends) on: Apr 17, 2021
From the first time I met Corinne some fifty years ago when my sister married into her extended family, I realized that Corinne’s outer beauty was vastly out trumped by her inner beauty. Her friendliness and her genuineness created a very special person who will be remembered lovingly by everyone who had the fortune of meeting her. I feel honoured to have crossed paths with her, thank you Corinne. Heartfelt sympathy to all her immediate and extended family. Peter, I always considered you a very lucky man to have shared so much of your life with an angel. I still do. - Posted by: Ron Takeshita (Extended family/friend) on: Apr 17, 2021
