On behalf of our family, we are sharing with loved ones the passing of our Mother Edith Lenz on May 10th, 2021 just before her 81st birthday. Mom has been battling kidney disease for the past 6 years and fought hard to have this additional time with her family and friends.
Edith leaves behind three children Roy Lamoureux, Richard Lamoureux and Teresa Cote. Also three grandchildren, Matthew Lum, Chantal Koster and Nicole Cote. This Year Edith became a Great Grandmother to Benjamin Lum-Gill and Brantley Koster. Edith has two daughters-in-law Trudi Lamoureux and Mary Lamoureux, as well as her Grandchildren’s spouses Harleen Lum-Gill and Corey Koster. She also leaves behind her dear friends who have touched her world, and her heart, in immeasurable ways.
Our family does not want this day to be sad but rather a celebration of her life, and we welcome those who knew, and loved her, to be a part of it. Her request is not to have a funeral, but a personal gathering of immediate family. She encourages those who cannot be there, to join with her in their moments of remembrance. Following Mom's wishes, cremation has taken place.
Mom will always be remembered for her generous spirit, sense of humor, silly playfulness, immeasurable strength, outspoken manner, honesty, fierce loyalty and unwavering dedication to her family and friends.
Mom has lived a diverse life. She and our step father (Robert Lenz - deceased Aug 24, 2011) travelled the world, and enjoyed their time together. Edith and Bob were known far and wide by friends and customers who frequented Antiques at the Sawmill or kibitzed with them at auctions. They were a staple in their community. You could always find Mom antiquing, going to garage sales, attending Indian Pow Wows, collecting "Talking Earth Pottery" and Indian Baskets, going to dances, playing cards, and reading endlessly. But her favorite thing to do was spend time with family, and raise mischief, and fun, with friends.
She touched and enriched many lives throughout the years. To her family and friends she wants you to remember her love for you. She will miss seeing each of you which was the hardest part of her passage. She has kept each of you close in her heart and taken your memory with her.
We will deeply miss all the amazing parts of her that made her so special. We love you and will miss you Mom. You will always be close, a part of us, and tucked in our hearts.
Special thanks to the many doctors, nurses and personal support personnel at the Renal Clinic, and the LHIN, for their exceptional care and dedication. Your compassion, understanding and unwavering support helped hold Edith, and her family, up during the final stages of her journey. An additional thank you to CCAC and Tri-City Cremations Service for your care and going above and beyond to support our family .
