Daisy Wilk (Pappas) passed away at home in Toronto on Saturday October 14, 2023, surrounded by family after a 6-year battle with cancer at the age of 59. Beloved wife of Mark and cherished mother of Lauren, Christopher and Ryan, Daisy became a full time Mom after 27 years with Bank of Montreal.
Daisy was born in Toronto to George, predeceased in 2019, and Peggy Pappas, with brother to Perry. Loving aunt to Kalin, Matthew and Nathan, and “Theia” to many of her cousins’ children, Daisy will be remembered for her easy smile and love for everyone. That love extended to the neighbourhood dogs which would frequently visit for a pet and dog cookies.
