It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of
Grace Inaam Bachir Hishon.
Grace passed away peacefully with her family by her side on
August 19th, 2019, at Baycrest Palliative Centre.
Loving daughter to John Hanna (deceased) and Najla Bachir,
Grace is predeceased by her husband Brian Hishon.
Devoted mother to Kelley (Mark) and Riel.
Loving sister to George (Ayesha), Anissa (Barry),
Salah (Jacob) and Ziad (Rima).
Adoring Taita, grandma to Owen, Timothy, and Hannah.
Loving aunt to Jonathan, Nicholas, Ameel, Aliya, Ivy, John and Christopher.
Grace will be fondly remembered by sister in-law Pat (Rick), brother in-law
Doug (Sheila) and sister-in-law Judi (Wally) and their families.
Grace was born in Lebanon and immigrated to Canada
with the family as a teenager.
She made several trips back home to connect with family and friends and
will be sadly missed and mourned by her family and friends in Lebanon.
Grace fought a courageous battle with
Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) for the past 10 years with dignity.
It broke our hearts to see this awful disease
rob her of her independence bit by bit.
She was very brave and endured all without complaint.
Grace had a wicked sense of humour. She loved working with people
and was entrepreneurial. She opened one of the first health food/
nutrition stores in Oakville and spent the last 25 years as a successful
real estate agent in Toronto West. Her clients became lifelong friends.
Grace will be sadly missed and fondly remembered for her love
and dedication to her family and friends.
She will always be in our hearts.
Our heartfelt thanks to the Palliative Care team at Baycrest for their
excellent care and support of our family, to Dr. Zive, Dr. Crispino
and Dr. Marras, and to her wonderful caregivers, Noraly, Ann,
Edna and Nida Caringal.
