January 25, 1943 – January 6, 2024

I just want to express thanks. Thank you for sharing and enriching our lives for the 60 years since our engagement on November 4, 1963 and our marriage on January 25, 1966.

Thank you for bringing to the world our wonderful children Hanaa (Stuart Plant, Owen, and Bennett), Sonia (David Ruppel, (Violet (Jordan), and Emily), Haney (Kirsten, Kailyn, and Jakob).

Thank you for your work and involvement in St. George Orthodox Church in the choir and ladies’ auxiliary.

Thank you for being one of the founding members in St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church as council member, in establishing Sunday school, and being one of its leaders until very recently, along with many other activities too numerous to count.

Thank you for your wonderful work ethic at the libraries of the University of Manitoba. As one of your colleagues at the library wrote, “the words ‘I can’t’ are not in her vocabulary!”.

Thank you for the numerous arts and crafts you have enjoyed doing and given to family and friends to adorn their homes.

Thank you for being a wonderful sister to your siblings Nabil (Suzy), Adel (Sonia), and Rafik and a wonderful cousin to extended family members in Egypt, the U.S., and Australia.

Thank you for the lovely time we spent together in different destinations as tourists or getting together with family members and friends.

We shall celebrate you at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 11, 2024, at St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church, 1111 Chevrier Blvd., R3T 1Y2.
