Unterman, Ayala.  It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Savta and great-grandmother Ayala. She passed away on June 21 surrounded by her loving family.  She grew up in Jerusalem and continued to live most of her adult life in Canada.  She had a passion for teaching Hebrew to young children and had a long career in the Jewish day school system, primarily at USDS in Toronto.  You could feel her love through her smile and taste it through her Israeli salad and dips.

She was the devoted wife of the late Shmuel Unterman for too short a time.  She was a loving mother to Saul and Karen, and Sheila and Izchak.  She was greatly loved by her grandchildren Hailey, Becca and Adam, Elyte, Sammy and Mika, Ari and Shira. She was a cherished Savta to 5 great-grandchildren, Ruby, Eden, Charlie, Cali and Nora.

We wish to express our thanks to her loving angels, Janine, Gloria, Eva and Jonalyn.  Special thanks to Elena and Dr. Khemlin for their care this last year.
