With heavy hearts we are sad to share the news of our mother’s passing on Thursday, October 22, 2020. Loving wife of the late Shaul (Shoil) Lavie. Cherished mom of Talya and Patrice, Aurete and Harris, Sharon and Santino. Beloved Savta to Benjamin, Remy, Shayna, Samantha, Julia, Coby, Camilla and Cassidy. Sister to Zvia Segal. Adored and treasured friend to many in Canada and Israel.

Rina will be remembered as a strong and independent woman who loved to travel the world, a no nonsense kibbutznik, cofounder of Ambrosia Natural Foods, and most of all as a caring and loving Savta to all her grandchildren.

She will be sadly missed and her memory will be treasured.

Special appreciation to Dr. Pnina Bross and Dr. Theresa Petrella, and the staff at Odette Cancer Center.

A private family graveside service will be held on October 23, 2020.  With Covid restrictions in place, the family will be honouring Rina’s memory with a virtual prayer service on Sunday, October 25 at 7:00pm. To join this service, please install Zoom and click HERE
