It is with profound sadness that we say goodbye to Dolly who passed away on Friday, July 1, 2022, just before her 97th birthday. Dolly was a sweet, devoted, and loving wife, mother, and siti (grandmother). Her family and friends were her greatest treasures. She was an angel to all who knew her. Dolly loved life. She never wanted to miss out on any event that involved her family or close friends. Dolly had an amazing sense of humour and was always up for the next adventure. She was an excellent cook (especially known for her Lebanese cuisine by all who loved her). She was a creative and meticulous seamstress and had a love for playing cards and games with her children and grandchildren. In her earlier days, Dolly was an active member of the Hasroun Club and the Catholic Women’s League.
Predeceased by her husband Joseph, of 66 years. Dearest mother to Charlene Jablonowski (Alex), Pat Barnet (Brendan), Rosie Della Spina (Tony), Judy St. Louis (Bruce), Joe Farah (Jacquie), Sandie Tracey (Jay), Gerry Farah (Sheila), and Michelle Farah. She will be greatly missed by her 21 grandchildren and by her 21 great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews who she adored. She is predeceased by her parents, Rose and Sam Simony, and her siblings Rose (Charlie), Joseph (Lillian), Mary (Eddie), Ameil (Helen), Amelia (Paul), and Helen.
