Ava Maria Caza passed away peacefully on Saturday November 27, 2021 in Kitchener after a brief illness.
Ava was born on June 12, 1949 in Halifax, NS. Throughout her life, Ava was many things including a laboratory technician, a loving mother, a loyal friend, and a dedicated partner. Perhaps one of her most cherished roles was that as mother to Arran and Gregory and grandmother to Max, Alex, and Vivienne, all of whom inherited her charm, wry wit, compassion for animals, stubbornness, and levelling glare. Ava loved long walks in nature, suspense novels, board games, and a great cup of tea. She was a stellar conversationalist and will be remembered for her energetic spirit, curiosity, kindness, and sense of humour. Ava will be deeply missed by many.
She is survived by her partner since 2005 Brian Brocklebank, her sons and grandchildren, daughter-in-law Brianna Caza, sisters Linda (Eric) and Susan (Sylvain), in-laws Audrey, Claudia, Antoinette, and Jolene (Howard), and Garth (Amelia) and nineteen surviving nephews and nieces.
Ava was predeceased by her husband Bryan Caza, as well as her parents Kenneth and Oriola Golar, sisters Fern and Irma, nephew Bob, and in-laws Melvin (Marguerite), Tony, and Vance.
The family wishes to thank the staff at Innisfree House for keeping her comfortable in her final days.
Per her wishes, she has been cremated and there will be a celebration of life service held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, charitable donations in Ava’s memory can be made to any cancer charity or local SPCA organization.
