Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Foty, or Beppe as I called her, babysat me as a child. I have fond memories in her care, playing with King, Grace and Leonard. Now a new mother myself, I hope to find someone to care for my daughter the way Foty cared so beautifully for me. Deepest condolences to the family during this difficult time. May Foty rest in peace. - Posted by: Breanne Boughton (Friend) on: Dec 21, 2021
We will miss Foty. She was a fun participant in the the coffee and lunch get-togethers that we regularly had in Grace church before the pandemic. Our sincere condolences to her family. - Posted by: Jake and Rita Kuik (Friends) on: Dec 21, 2021
Foty and Grace were the best babysitters and friends. I trusted them with my daughter Breanne and then 2 - 12 years later April. Bert and I were just talking about Foty yesterday and on a few occasions I tried to look her up to no avail. I remember I was horrified when she told me she put Breanne down for a nap only to come into the bedroom and Breanne had reached into her diaper to paint the walls. Foty was laughing and totally took the blame telling me she raised enough kids that she should have known you should never say I just have this to do and then I'll get her. I started to apologize and she stopped me in my tracks. She loved to go for coffee with her daughters and it was an honour to be included. You were a wonderful person Foty but now Gracie needs you back. R.I.P. dear friend, you will be missed. - Posted by: Roslyn Saurette (friend ) on: Dec 21, 2021
Foty was a delightful person who always had a beautiful smile for everyone. Foty was always there to lend a helping hand. She loved her family and was an extremely proud grandmother. We are so grateful to have been able to spend some time with Foty in October. She will be remembered fondly. Henry and Elaine Gowryluk. - Posted by: Henry and Elaine Gowryluk (Parents-in-law) on: Dec 21, 2021
