Passed unexpectedly on Thursday, May 12, 2022 , at the age of 83. Beloved daughter of Pedro & Carolina, predeceased by her sisters Elena and Antonia (Higinio). She will be greatly missed by her beloved husband Ken of 53 years. She was a devoted mother to her daughter Yolanda and her son-in-law Fred Fuoco, and a cherished grandmother to Gianluca and Julia. A beloved Tia to Higinio (Montse), Carlos (MariaDolores) and Jordi (Consuelo).
Sally was a woman of unshakable spirit and ahead of her time. Leaving her beloved Barcelona, Spain as a young woman, she hitch-hiked across Europe exploring many countries, Austria, Germany, France, and Italy, to name a few. She continued her travels through Scotland and England, the United States and eventually arriving in Toronto.
It was in Toronto that she met her beloved husband, and a community of people who became family. Sally was a founding member of the Club Hispano, and for more than 50 years she actively participated in Caravans, Fiestas, Friday night card games and various positions on the board. Her love of her culture, was passed down to her daughter and granddaughter and she loved nothing more than taking them to dance classes and watching them perform.
Sally spent the bulk of her career working for the Royal Bank of Canada, and has maintained lasting friendships. She looked forward to her events with the “bank ladies.”
She was an extremely compassionate person and lived her life to the fullest. She had an uncanny ability to touch people in a deep and positive way. She loved her friends and continued to make new ones even though she already had so many. She loved to help people, always giving of her time to others; she was the life of the party. Sally will forever be remembered as someone with a great zest for life and a kind heart. She loved her family and friends and we all loved her back. We shall miss her and honour her in our memory every day.
