Passed away peacefully at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer on Wednesday July 24, 2019 at the age of 55 years.
Born in Poland, daughter of Halina and Czeslaw. Lovingly remembered by husband of 33 years Tom, her children Michael and Taya, and her two loving cats Bolek & Lolek. Dear sister to Ania and Jurek. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Vanessa lived for family and the company of all her loved ones. She was always prepared with a warm greeting, a meal and a story to tell. She was an avid traveller with her husband; from seeing the mountains of Poland, the coasts of Bali and the sacred sites of Peru.
Vanessa was an angel amongst us and will be greatly missed by many of whose lives she’s touched.
A special thanks to the staff within the ICU of Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital for their compassion and exceptional care.
The family has organized a Celebration of Life at Royal Botanical Gardens on Friday, September 13th, from 6pm to 9pm. Further details are provided at this RSVP link for those planning to attend. We are grateful for all those who have reached out and provided support to our family during this difficult time and we hope to see you September 13th.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Oakville Hospital Foundation.
