In Celebration of

Michelle Condillac

September 17, 1957 –  May 24, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce Michelle’s sudden passing on Sunday, May 24, 2020 at Trillium Health Partners Mississauga Hospital at the age of 62. Cherished daughter of Beryl and the late Garth Condillac. Adored sister of Vicki Schmitt (Chris) and Rosemary Condillac (David Keldsen). Much loved aunt of Eric Schmitt (Kailey Ono), Andrew Schmitt (Ashley Tam), Ryan Schmitt (Kaitlyn Ortin), and Catherine Keldsen, and doting great aunt to Norah Schmitt. Michelle is reunited in heaven with her father and sisters Cindy (Jean Francois) & Cathy.
Michelle always considered it a privilege and a calling to be a nurse. She devoted 38 years of her life to caring for sick children and their families as a RN and spent many years teaching and mentoring nurses to provide quality care. She thanked God for making it possible for her to do this work.
Cremation arrangements entrusted to Turner and Porter Funeral Directors. The Rite of Christian Burial will take place with her immediate family in the days to come. A Celebration of her life will be planned for family, friends, and colleagues when we can join together safely to honour her.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Michelle’s memory can be made to Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital through a special campaign in her name. The funds collected will be directed to the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Team, on which she culminated her career.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

There are two countries in the world that officially celebrate Thanksgiving (and that have a substantial population of people descended from the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony). As an American in Canada (and, as it happens, a descendant of those Pilgrims), I thoroughly enjoy both Thanksgivings.

Whether this is a religious holiday for you or not, I hope that you can take a few minutes to stop and appreciate what you have.

Best holiday wishes to all; may you count your blessings and share with your friends and loved ones.

Best regards,
