19 août 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our loving mother and wife, Connie Contino, on August 19, 2020. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Fernando, her daughters Melissa and Meghan, her mother Anna, her siblings Rosario (Ginette), Pina (Frank), Rino (Anna), Nick, and brother-in-law Angelo. She is now united with her late father Vito, and later sister Giovanna.

Connie inspired everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. She had a smile that lit up every room she walked into; even those who met her for even a brief moment knew how special she was. Her legacy will live on through her husband and daughters and her kindness and compassion will be remembered by all of the hearts she has touched.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, August 29, 2020 from 1:30-7:00 p.m., at Voluntas, 4695 St-Jean Blvd., Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Qc H9H 2A7. Please consider adding a touch of colour to your outfit as she wanted all of us to celebrate her life.

We are forever grateful to the Lung Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital (JGH) for giving such special care and attention to Connie. In lieu of flowers, a donation in her memory to the JGH Peter Brojde Lung Cancer Centre Fund would be appreciated.

    As Leo Buscaglia quotes, “I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories.”
    Connie, you have left me, your cousin, with exactly that, an indelible imprint in my memory that goes back to when when we were young. You will be missed. Rest In Peace.

    My beautiful sister, it will never be the same without your presence. The past year has been difficult for you and your family. How grateful it is knowing you are in no more pain. Connie, your presence will always be with us. Now, you have joined Daddy and our sister Giovanna. I love you all, ALWAYS ❤️

    To my dear Connie and her loving family. Even my deepest condolences and sympathies is not deep enough to express the amount of sadness I am feeling after hearing this news. As if this year hasn’t already taken a toll on our lives, I now have to look at this life knowing I’ll never see you again. Never have I met someone who was just so pure, always full of life and joy. Always smiling, you made my every day – a better day. I know Heaven has gained an angel – and I know you would ask me to smile right now. So I will – for you Connie. Rest in Peace.

    Dear Connie, we worked together for so many years and our small team became a family and you were an important part of that family. I’m deeply sad we will not see you brightening our days with your nice smile and your caring personality. We will miss you so much and we will keep you always in our hearts and we will remember the nice times sharing with you.
    All my prayers and condolences are with your family.
