GRACH, Gabriele - Gabriele Grach passed away on the morning of Saturday, October 2, 2021, from lung cancer.
Her daughter Julia and husband Ken were at her side and were able to hold her hand and tell her how much she was loved.
Gabriele had a beautiful and vibrant spirit and was truly loved and appreciated by so many people from all walks of life who will miss her deeply.
She was gentle and kind, musical, creative and generous, a true animal lover and so much fun to be with.
She always helped people when they needed it, was a great listener and inspired many people with her positive outlook on life and strong sense of compassion and empathy.
Gabriele was on the board for Homes First Society, volunteered for the Good Neighbours Club and contributed to many other organizations and initiatives. She was a multitalented person who brought joy and music to people's lives.
She loved celebrating life and entertaining people with her piano playing at senior homes, hospitals and gatherings and always played peoples' favourite songs on request. Her shining light will live on through all the people that loved her. She will be greatly missed.
She is a reminder to always be kind, to accept and celebrate people for who they are, to focus on being the best version of yourself, to make space for forgiveness and enjoy the present moment and life to its fullest.
"If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you'll never enjoy the sunshine."
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
