August 16, 1939 – October 19, 2014

Lost to us too soon, beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, Leona May Wilde passed away on October 19th, 2014 after a brief, but heroic battle against heart disease.

Survived by her children, Sandra Dodd (husband Dennis and sons Sean and Cody), Susan Whittaker (husband Sid and children: Todd, Jessica and Krista), Nancy Morgan (husband John and sons Adam and Tristan), Shelley Cook and Andrew Weingart (son Drew), two sisters, Sharon

Collision and Donna Toews, and her brother Alan Stoppa. Your death dear mother, was our first sorrow wept without you. If our love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. Caregiver to family and strangers alike, she was a strong soul who always put the needs of others before her own. Widowed by her true love, Pat Wilde, two years ago, they are now reunited in death where their dance together will continue forever. Special thanks to all the wonderful health care professionals (paramedics, doctors and nurses) who cared for mom over the last few months. In respect of mom’s wishes, there will not be a public service. Donations (in lieu of flowers) can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
