elevated 49dyL Obituary
elevated 49dyL It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend Nicole. She passed away surrounded by her loving family and friends on Wednesday October 31, 2018 at Hill House Hospice in Richmond Hill.
elevated 49dyL Nicole was first and foremost a devoted and loving mother to her two children Roman and Jenna. She was married to her loving husband Dan for 25 years. Nicole was predeceased by her father Boguslaw “Bob” Furmanek and is survived by her mother Maria-Theresa “Ria” Furmanek. Nicole will be deeply missed by her beloved sister Yolanda Bronstein (Steve), and she will forever be remembered by many family and friends.
elevated 49dyL Nicole touched so many lives whether it was her inner circle of family and friends or in the community through her deep involvement in her children’s schools. She was instrumental in the establishment of the new Jean Vanier high school and was the Parent Council chair for 8 years. She will always be remembered as an incredible hostess, loyal friend and the most warm and generous human being.

We are deeply saddened of hearing about Nicole’s passing.
Sending sincere condolences to all the family in this very difficult time. I hope part of this poem by John O’Donohue,offers heartfelt loving embrace: “We look toward each other no longer From the old distance of our names; Now you dwell inside the rhythm of breath, As close to us as we are to ourselves. Though we cannot see you wth outward eyes, We know our soul’s gaze is upon your face, Smiling back at us”. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Dear family and friends of Nicole:
Nicole was love. She radiated it, gave it away to everyone and made everyone’s life a little more joyful. That’s what life is all about. How to give love and how to receive it. She did both well.
Sending you light and strength.
I am deeply saddened to hear of Nicole’s passing. She radiated love and support in all that she did and was instrumental in building the community at Jean Vanier CHS as its Parent Council Chair. I really enjoyed each of my interactions with her and will miss her terribly. I extend my deepest condolences to her husband and her children Roman and Jenna, whom she adored more than anything, at this time of profound grief. May God grant you strength at this difficult time.
As you walk this journey of grief, know that you are being sustained by the love of Jesus. Have hope in His Resurrection and know that Nicole has been rewarded with eternal life.
Nicole’s smile and beautiful, loving nature will be missed. I send to you my prayers and my condolences. Peace be with you.
