Galina Margolin (nee Chizhikova ) September 1, 1045 – December 16, 2021
It is with great sadness that we share the sudden loss of our dearest Galina. We will miss her quick wit, beautiful smile and generous spirit. Dmitry, her loving husband for the past 53 years, will miss her dearly. Although they spent the past 2.5 years apart while she required care for her dementia, his weekly visits were a highlight for both. Her sons Oleg (Christine) of Toronto and Pavel (Laura) of Vancouver, have lost a strong matriarch who loved and guided them throughout their lives. Her granddaughters, Sofie, Sarah and Ella will miss their Babushka very much. They will hold close memories of lavish Russian dinners, quiet backyard swings and delightful sun-filled vacations.
She will also be missed by her brother, Boris (Alla), brother-in-law Sasha (Lena), sister-in-law Irina (Misha), nephews Pavel, Jason (Guy), Gene and niece Lana (Eric) and many great-nieces and nephews.
We would like to thank the staff at Cheltenham Care Community Senior Living Centre for their dedication and care of Galina over the past 2.5 years.
Memorial donations may be made to the Jewish Russian Community Centre, 5987 Bathurst St., Suite #3, Toronto, M2R 1Z3 (416) 222-7105 ext. 221
