elevated Mj9au Obituary

elevated Mj9au Our dear mother, Grignion Fonseca passed away peacefully surrounded by her family Monday, February 25 in Unionville in her 92 year. Dear wife of the late Mr. Rui Fonseca, and predeceased by her children Dr. Avril MacDonald (Rob MacDonald) and Dr. Lynette Fonseca.

elevated Mj9au She will be greatly missed by her children, Keith, Elaine (Phil) and Nigel (Melissa). She was a proud grandmother to Cassondra, Nicole, Graham, Andrew, Adriana (Scott) Donovan and Kevin. She also had a fond place in her heart for Simba, Belle, Tigger and Bentley.

elevated Mj9au Mom was the heart of our family.  Together with dad she left a privileged life in Nairobi to provide the opportunity for her children to further their studies.  Watching their achievements and those of her grandchildren was a great source of pride.  In addition to her work ethic, her love of camping and nature was passed down to her children and now grandchildren. Her strong faith and her love of music was key to her long life. A survivor to the end, she beat breast cancer twice and survived the passing of her eldest daughter.  Eventually dementia and Alzhiemers took her away from us but she would still be able to sing her favourite songs and hymns until the last week of her treasured life.  She lives on in all her family.
