Obituary of Aleksandra Elżbieta Walinski
Beloved and devoted wife of 50 years to Lech, loving mother to Hubert (Leanne) and Maciej (Samantha), and grandmother to Eliana, Aiden, and Emilia; passed away peacefully in her sleep during the early morning hours of January 11th at St. Joseph's Hospital after a brave battle with cancer. Born in Radom, Poland on November 8, 1951, Aleksandra immigrated to Canada with her family in 1990, settling in Hamilton, Ontario, which she called home until her passing. She was determined to provide the best life for her sons and quickly became fluent in English while working various jobs to support her family. At the same time, she pursued a career in electrical engineering and worked with great success in the field for over 25 years. Throughout her life, Aleksandra prioritized the happiness and well-being of her family above all else, and showed kindness, generosity, and care to all who crossed her path. Being surrounded by her loved ones each day was her joy, with her greatest pleasure coming from watching her grandchildren eat her soup and perogies and taking them for long walks to the lake. Her spirit will live on through them and her great life lessons will continue to be the pillars of their values. An avid reader for whom a library card was as important as a driver's license, she was rarely found without a book in her hands during her leisure time. Although she adored flowers of all kinds, a donation can be made to your local library, Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, or St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton in their stead. A devout Catholic, she embodied the core tenets of the faith with dignity and purpose, taking comfort by participating in prayer groups and adoration of Christ the Lord by avidly attending church. Aleksandra's strength of mind and spirit were felt by all those in her church community whom she greatly supported and took every opportunity to pray for those in need. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Hamilton on Saturday, January 22, 2022, at 10 a.m. followed by an interment at Holy Sepulchre Catholic Cemetery. A celebration of life will take place in the spring of 2022.
Spoczywaj w pokoju z Bożą łaską.
