February 27, 1937 – November 25, 2021
With heaviness in our hearts, we announce the passing of our mother in her 85th year, devoted wife of the late Andy Skalos, beloved mother to Gary (Joanne), Judy (Robert Burns) and Joanne (Andrew Moors). Proud and treasured grandmother to Amanda, Matthew, Robbie, Ryan, Shawn and Jason and great-grandmother to Julian.
Family was everything to our Mom and she leaves to mourn her sisters and brothers John (Darlene), Madge, Billy, Jean D. and Ron. She also leaves her identical twin sister Catherine who held a special place in my mom’s heart and in all of our lives.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to her very special friends Pat Niazi and Linda and Bob Fisher whose friendship and kindness have meant the world to all of us as she transitioned to life on her own. Also, thanks to all her friends too numerous to mention that have been there during the last year as she fought the good fight.
A special thanks to the CLSC-Pointe Claire (Mandeep) and NOVA (Louise) in their support to keep our mom in her home as long as possible. Mom’s last days were spent at the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care residence where she received the warmth and caring support of so many individuals and allowed us to enjoy her company until the end.
A private ceremony and celebration of life will be held next summer. A donation in Mom’s honour to the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care residence would be welcome.
