SCHAMI, Raymond Albert

Raymond Schami

It is with great sadness that we four sisters announce the death of our beloved father, Raymond, on January 7, 2021, in Montreal, Quebec, at the age of 83.

He leaves behind many loved ones, namely his four daughters, Veronica (Anthony), Viviane Sabilla, Stephanie (Tom), Danielle (Larry), and his grandchildren, Adriana (Jason), Gaby, Adam Yassin, Yasmine Amina, Alexandre, Nora, Leeland, Melvin and Evans. Our heart goes out to his siblings and their families, Gilbert (deceased) (Marie), Roger (Nouhad), Thérèse (Elie), Monique, Bernard, Paulette (deceased) and many nieces and nephews. Appreciation goes out to all those who have been a great source of strength and support to our family, especially Alcida and Georges, Nabil, Jorge and many of Raymond’s cherished friends in Sechelt, British Columbia.

Our deep gratitude goes out to the staff at Lakeshore General Hospital, in particular Dr. Iancu, Dr. Mandilaras, nurse Sabrina Jeans, Dr. Chen, Dr. Wanneh, Dr. Buhari, Dr. Abid, all the RNs, LPNs, PABs and staff on 4 West, as well as the Cardiology team, in particular Dr. Schiff and especially Bruno, whose intervention came at a most crucial time. Un merci spécial à Sylvie-Anne, archiviste, qui notre père a particulièrement apprécié. We also extend our appreciation to those we were unable to name here.

Special thanks also to nurses Louise Brossard, Dominique Overney and the team at Nova West Island, as well as the departments of home care (nurse Nancy Lemay) and palliative care (nurse Myriam Jean-Noel and Dr. Elena Neamt) at CLSC Pierrefonds, not to mention the staff at the blood taking clinic, who took great care of our father “Monsieur Raymond” over the last years. We also would like to thank nurse Sandy Fitzpatrick and all the staff at the West Island Cancer Wellness Centre. Our thanks also to pharmacist Nora Al-Khoury and her team for her professional and attentive overseeing of Raymond’s complex medicinal list.

Appreciation is also offered to Dr. Eiley, Mary-Anne and Connie for your care over the last three years. Thank you also to the MGH team under Dr. Thomas Hadgis.

Due to the circumstances of the pandemic, a ceremony will be held at a later date.

Please consider contributing to our father’s memory by supporting a charity of your choice or one of the following organizations:

Nova West Island

Lakeshore General Hospital

West Island Cancer Wellness Centre

Canadian Cancer Society

Heart and Stroke Canada

Gathering to be confirmed

Location to be confirmed

    I feel your loss deeply my dear family. Your father’s name, Raymond Schami, is arched in my four year old mind, when I first met him. He seemed to me to be a sophisticated, kind and serious presence in my young self. That never changed. A good loving man. My deep condolences.

    My beloved Brother Raymond . You did not leave us ! – I can still hear your voice resounding in my ears. You are still alive in our hearts . You just moved out to another world where there is no pain or sorrow. Before you moved out, you were surrounded, day and night, by your four beautiful Angels : Veronica, Vivian, Stephanie and Danielle, God bless you all; but now you are resting in peace with the Celestial Angels.
    Today Sunday, the Divine Liturgies at the following churches in El Paso, Texas , have been offered for you specially so that you may rest in peace:
    Saint Sharbel Maronite Catholic Church
    Saint George Greek Orthodox Church
    PLUS the lighting of the Dome of St. George Church at night, in memory of our beloved brother Raymond.

I have known your family since the 70s, and have always felt its warm embrace. Your father continues to live within your hearts, minds and spirit.

    Although I didn’t know Raymond well, I know his four loving and wonderful four daughters Danielle, Viviane, Stephanie and Veronica. I also know Alcida who,
    with him raised that group of strong, independent, smart women. I am so glad you were able to be with him at the end and that you were able to share your love in person in these difficult times. I had the chance to see the video for his 80th birthday and your closeness and love was inspiring. Take care of one another and hope to see you all some time not too far away
    love Wendy
    Although I didn’t know Raymond well, I know his four wonderful and loving daughters and my heart goes out to Danielle, Stephanie, Viviane and Veronica and to Alcida
