Died peacefully, surrounded by family on April 25, 2019, at St. Joseph’s Health Centre at the age of 94.
Loving mother to Stan (Betsy), Jim (Karen), and Helen (Bob). Fiercely proud and devoted grandmother to Cameron, Lauren, Jeremy, Matthew (Jeanie), Michael, Andrew, William, and Ellie, and great grandmother to Sophia. Predeceased by Paul, her loving husband of 40 years.
Nora emigrated from Greece in her 20s. She and her late husband Paul operated a successful business before retiring happily in Etobicoke more than 40 years ago.
Nora had a long and active life. She was never one to sit still; always cooking for friends and family, walking to shops and gardening, well into her 90s. For Nora, family came first. She cared for all of her grandchildren when they were very young, which brought her a great deal of joy and fulfillment.
The family appreciates her extended family, neighbours, and friends who came to visit her at the hospital, and regularly looked in on her while in her home. Much gratitude to Dr. Kerametlian who made many house calls and became a good friend to Nora. Special thank you to the palliative care team at St. Joseph’s for their kindness and compassion.
In Nora’s memory, the family asks donations be made to St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation, Palliative Care Unit.
