It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Onerva Semenic (née Vaittinen) on June 7, 2019 at the age of 82. Predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Ivo Semenic and devoted mother to Lena Cynthia (Luigi), Sonia (Joel), and Boyan Semenic. Doting grandmother to Ally and Julia Fraquelli, and Cleo and Rigel Zifkin.
Born in Karelia, Finland, and predeceased by her brother Jorma, she will be sadly missed by her sisters Anja, Anita and Tarja and well as her brother Osmo. She leaves behind many nieces and nephews, all of whom remember her graceful and kind spirit.
The family would like to thank Salvi, Lina, Peggy and Wendy for their attentive care during Onerva's last few years. A private family service will take place in August. In memory of Onerva, donations to Parkinson Canada would be greatly appreciated.
