elevated UuZFf Obituary
elevated UuZFf Marcelle (Abou Asaly) Mouaket, the cornerstone of our family, left this world to join God’s Angels on the morning of Saturday, March 11th, 2023. She lived to be 80 and was survived by her loving husband of 44 years Ibrahim and sons Loutfi and Sami.
elevated UuZFf Marcelle graduated from the Beirut College for Women with a degree in Economics and Political Science and wanted to have a positive impact on the world pursuing a career in social and charitable services. She was selected by the International YWCA to develop leadership skills in Switzerland and Canada before returning to Beirut to run the YWCA there. She would ultimately relocate to Canada and headed programming at the Arab Community Center in Toronto, where she met Ibrahim. Marcelle then became the program director at St. Christopher’s House and subsequently lead the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s fundraising activities in York Region.
elevated UuZFf She put her career on hold, to place her sons at the center of her life. She was a strong and thoughtful mother with great drive, that had a magnetic energy and presence. She defied many health challenges over the years motivated by wanting to remain part of her family’s life, to care for and guide them. She was very social and loved engaging with people to share what she knew and to learn from others. She was proud to be “intelligently opinionated.”
