In memory of

Aino Laanvere

April 10, 1927 -  March 29, 2020

Aino Laanvere

Aino died peacefully on March 29, 2020 at Ehatare Retirement Home at the age of 92. She will be remembered by her loving husband of 68 years, Paul, her son Richard (Marcia Ross) and her adored grandchildren, Michael (Kinsey Good) and Erika (Matt Pflance). She is also survived by her sister, Milvi, in Estonia.

During the war, Aino and her sister Lydia were able to find refuge in Sweden where they lived for several years. In 1951 she decided to move to Canada for new opportunities. One of those opportunities was when she spotted Paul on the ship’s voyage to Canada and they started their 68-year romance.

A private family funeral and burial will occur on Saturday April 4, 2020 at the York Funeral Centre. There will be a Celebration of Life scheduled for a future date. For further information, please refer to the online memorial
If desired, memorial donations can be made to the Toronto Sickkids Foundation.

Dear Paul, Rick and family,
We are thinking of you during this sad time. Gilda had kept us up to date with how everyone was doing so we knew that Aino was in failing health. We are wishing we had been closer so we could have visited during better times but want you to know that we have such great memories of Aino and you all and are sending our sincere sympathy for your loss.
Love from Laura and Tom
