On Thursday, May 7, 2020, our dear mummy, Judy passed away suddenly in her home in Montreal, Quebec.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, she was the loving daughter of Phyllis Bellamy and F. Cecil Pace.
Judy is survived by her brother Trevor, her children Jacqueline, Michael and Andrew, and her grandchildren Alexandre, Benjamin, Xavier and Christopher.
Judy was born in Manitoba then moved to Victoria, B.C. After WWII, Judy moved to Ontario and began her nursing career at Western Hospital in Toronto. Since the mid-50’s, she made a life for herself and her family in Montreal where she worked as a nurse at the Royal Victoria Hospital in several units, lastly caring for patients at the Palliative Care Unit. Judy was a devoted and giving mother, an animal lover who also had an enviable “green thumb” turning neglected outdoor spaces into glorious urban oases. She was a true artist at heart adorning the walls of family with her art, often inspired by calligraphy from the East. Known for her wonderful sense of humour and good heart, Judy’s devotion to the care of everyone and everything around her would be her biggest legacy. She is now at peace and is sadly missed.
We thank you for everything you have given us.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
