elevated PvydO Obituary
Surrounded by her family, Jane passed away peacefully in the afternoon of Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre at the age of 66.
Born on November 23, 1951 in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines, Jane was the daughter of Vicente Corrales and Rosario (Adiong) Corrales. Inspired by her voracious reading and the colourful imagery of her father’s National Geographic magazines, Jane set out to build her career in the then unknown country of Canada, first settling in St. John’s, Newfoundland in 1975.
Despite not having family around her during her first years in Canada, she cultivated a tight knit circle of friends that helped make her adopted country home.
Eventually, she made the big leap to Toronto, where she established her career further and built a family of her own. Balancing work and home life, she successfully raised two children with her husband of 37 years, and built a reputation of a compassionate and well- respected hemodialysis nurse, lending her expertise at various nursing conferences, and volunteering her time as the Vice President, Ontario Region for CANNT (Canadian Association of Nephrology Nurses and Technologists).
Jane leaves behind her loving family – husband Legorio, her daughter Candace (Bryan) and son Jordan (Stacy). She is survived by her sisters Jocelyn, Marlene and Grace, and her brothers Franklin, Eric and Raul. She is predeceased by her parents and sister Theresa. She will be missed by her extended family and friends, both in Canada and abroad.
Relatives and friends of Jane and her family are invited to the visitation at Holy Cross Catholic Funeral Home on Monday July 23, 2018 from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm and the Funeral Mass which will be held in the Chapel of St. Joseph (within Holy Cross Catholic Funeral Home) on Tuesday July 24 at 11:30 am.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests an ‘In Memory’ contribution to Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre or Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in recognition of their exemplary care of Jane.
