It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Emilie Nakhla Ibrahim on March 6, 2023 at the age of 94. Beloved wife of the late Kamal, and mother of the late Mina, she will be deeply missed by her children Mona, Wafa (Atallah) Essam. Her grandchildren Anthony (Stephanie), Cleo (Neil), Emilie (Ali), Lillie (Shanie), Adrian, Amanda (Taylor), Kera (Zack), Natasha and her eleven great grandchildren. As well as by her many nieces, nephews, family and friends.
Those she’s left behind will always remember her as someone whose door was always open, whose table was always set and whose helping hand was always outstretched. Her husband would always say that her meals were edible and everyone else would say they were extraordinary. Her fingers were known to perfectly season every meal and sweeten every dessert. As the head of our matriarchal family she will always be remembered for leading with an iron fist and a compassionate heart.
A service will be held at St. George & St. Joseph Coptic Orthodox Church, 17400 Pierrefonds Blvd., Pierrefonds, Qc H9J 2V4, on Thursday, March 9, 2023 at 11 a.m. A graveside service will follow at the Cimetière regional de St-Maxime, 3590, boul. Sir-Wilfrid-Laurier, St-Hubert, Qc J3Y 5Y9.
In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory to Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence, 265 André Brunet St, Kirkland, Quebec H9H 3R4 would be greatly appreciated.
