Ida Koufman, who courageously battled renal failure, passed away on June 13th. She is survived by her devoted husband, Gregory Koufman; cherished son, Sheldon Koufman; beloved daughter and son-in-law, Regina and Robert Kotoviets; and four adored grandsons, Jonah, Oliver, Asher, and Ely. She was predeceased by her loving parents, Moshe and Sarah, and is remembered fondly by her brother Sammy and sister Batia.

Ida’s unwavering love and selflessness were evident in her devotion to her family, who were the centre of her world. She possessed a remarkable ability to care for others, always prioritizing their needs above her own. Her family brought her immense joy and pride, and her presence filled their lives with warmth and love.

Ida touched the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her kindness and generosity extended beyond her family to her community, both longstanding and recent. While her physical presence will be deeply missed, the legacy of her love and dedication will continue to resonate in the lives of those she touched. Though she may no longer be with us, her memory will forever remain a source of inspiration and guidance for us all.
