Peacefully on October 21. Leaves behind her devoted husband Peter, children Steve (Kristan), Beth, Kara, Vicki (Patrick) Zirnhelt, and Christy (Rick) Soucy, and fourteen grandchildren: Abigael, Kate, Peter, Gregory, Madelyn, Christian, and Hope Zirnhelt; Bridget, Simon, Margot, Tessa, and William Johnson; and Claire and Adam Soucy .
Mom’s great loves were her family and her Lord, and her lasting legacy is the union among them all. Only physical impossibility impeded her daily Mass-going and time spent in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. Her commitment to the pro-life movement brought her the respect and friendship of so many.
Judy is predeceased by her parents William and Dorothy, of Montreal, and her sister-in-law Carol. She leaves behind her dear siblings Dee (Peter), Neil, Lee (Herb), Lynn (Tom), Jimmy (Karen), Brenda, Kenny (Mary Jo), and her many nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, if desired, donations may be made to Campaign Life Coalition. Online condolences may be made through www.turnerporter.ca
Peter and the family would like to express their sincere thanks for the professional care--and evidently affectionate attention above the call of duty--from Tracy DaCosta, Tamar Hammill, and all Judy's carers at Sunrise Mississauga over the last few months.
We also wish to praise the competency and compassion of neurosurgeon Dr. Dominic Rosso, and the support of his team and the staff at Trillium Mississauga, "Mom's Hospital," over the eight years since she suffered her original aneurysm. We always knew she was in excellent hands.
