It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Helen Extremadura Romey on May 25, 2020, at the age of 73.
Helen will be forever cherished by her husband, Salvador, of 50 years, her children, Jerome (Maria), Jonathan, and Janelle (James), and her grandchildren, Jaylen, Mya, Jaycee, Hayden, and Kyle.
Helen, aka “Nene,” grew up in Manila, Philippines with her 7 siblings. She married Salvador and had her three children before immigrating to Toronto, Canada in 1977, wanting to provide the best opportunity for her kids. She was truly selfless in raising her kids and this continued when she played a large part in raising her grandchildren. She will always be remembered for her kind demeanour, smile, laughter, and love of music. These fond memories will live on in the hearts of her family and dear friends.
A funeral service will be held on Saturday May 30, but due to current restrictions, it will be a private service with immediate family only. We thank everyone for their understanding.
