SIDAROUS, Soheir 'Sandy' Sidarous - Obituary | Print |

SIDAROUS, Soheir 'Sandy' -

Left us too soon on July 27, 2015.

Born in Egypt, on October 2, 1936, Sandy came to Canada with her beloved husband Raouf ("Ralph") and her two young children in tow (Amani and Mona).

A graduate of Cairo University, she first taught English to the children of royalty, before choosing to make Canada her new home. Her mission was to teach perfect English and a love of reading and good literature to her high school students. For 33 years, she ruled her classroom sternly, but with wit, love and humour - first in Hamilton, Ontario and then at Alderwood and Lakeshore Collegiates in Etobicoke. Her teaching skills were never turned off and she was as much a guide and a teacher to Mona and Amani as she was to her "official" students.

Later still, she continued to use her considerable teaching talents when Mona wonderfully made her a grandmother to Sophia. But there were so many other facets to her abilities, with a flair for colour, artwork, painting, decorating, gardening, cooking and baking. She always achieved perfection in all that she did and would spend hours on a project like a chocolate Christmas log, that invariably became too beautiful a masterpiece to eat. She is survived by her daughters Mona and Amani, Amani's husband Neil Oakley, her beloved Sophia, her brother Samah and sister Siham.

We will all miss her so terribly much. May God gather you into his arms Mommy and may you find happiness back at Daddy's side.

Visitation at Turner & Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas Street West, on Thursday, July 30th from 2-5 and 7-9 p.m.

Funeral Mass on Friday, July 31st at 11 a.m. at St. Mark's Coptic Church, 41 Glendinning Avenue, Scarborough.
