Mona passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on January 9, 2024, aged 83 years old.

She was born on January 21, 1940 in Cairo, Egypt. After moving to Canada with her late husband, George, two small children, and nothing to her name in the middle of a rough winter in the 60s, Mona worked incessantly to provide a beautiful life for her family. She was never one to shy away from a challenge and she fought every battle that she faced with strength, perseverance, and dignity.

Mona was known for her love of good food, art, her family, and her precious dog and companion, Cybelle. Her creativity and talent shone throughout her home with her beautiful paintings adorning the walls of every room.

She is survived by her children Johane (Michael), Hisham, and Karen (Robert), her grandchildren Giovanni, Nicole, Scott, Kayla, Ryan, Elyssia, Julia, Melissa, Nicholas and Sophia, and her great-grandchildren Lola, Connor, Gwen and Kaitlyn who she loved dearly and whose lives she touched deeply. “Grandma’s House” was always a special place for Mona’s family, one where they would gather, laugh, play, and usually have a glass or two of some good wine.

She often spoke of her guardian angels, and whenever her loved ones were going through tough times, she would send her angels to them. Mona is now surrounded by her guardian angels, helping them watch over her beloved family.

Please join us in celebrating Mona’s incredible life on her birthday, January 21, 2024 at Voluntas, 4695 St-Jean Blvd., Dollard-des-Ormeaux, from 1 pm to 6 pm, with a service at 2 pm.

    Mona and George were the first bosses I had as a teenager at the Depanneur Manoir Kirkland. Mona made such delicious food and was always smiling and had such kind eyes.
    Over the years I’d see her driving around the neighborhood and would think to myself “wow she still looks as good as she did 30 years ago!”
    My deepest condolences to the entire family.

    Mona est une femme moderne, avec des valeurs humaines qui vous faisaient se sentir bien en sa présence. C’est une femme qui n’avait pas peur. Elle avait sûrement une âme voyageuse, expérimentée de la vie. Souhaitons qu’elle nous serve encore de guide dans sa sagesse. Bon courage à la famille et amis (es). Que la paix l’accompagne.

    Mona was not only our neighbour and friend but with time she became like family to us. She was and will always be an incredible inspiration to me. I admired and learned a lot from her examples and faith in God. She always said “God’s Will”, and not mine. Until the very end her faith and loyalty to Him was very strong. I learned so much and will continue to practice what she showed me. I miss you already Mona, but I am relieved that your physical suffering has ended and that you are now in His arms. Thank you Mona, for all the time you invested in me and showing me the way. It was such a privilege, honour and a true blessing to have met you. I know that we will “meet again”, until then, may God bless your soul and watch over your beautiful family who have been with you day and night. May He give them the strength and courage to get over this mist difficult time.
    God bless
