Cindy May Vermette
8 June, 1969 – 19 November, 2021
Cindy Vermette passed away after a short battle with ovarian cancer at the age of 52 years.
Cindy’s life was challenging, but she embraced it with grace. Even though there were struggles along the way Cindy was always focused on being her best self.
Cindy was an artistic lady, she was inspired by her surroundings to create ceramics, drawings, quilts and crocheting. Cindy loved the changing of the seasons and the holidays that each season brought. She would send cards to her family and friends to let everyone know she was thinking of them. She had a wreath for every occasion.
Cindy loved all things furry. She had a special bond with her lovely cat Miss Fiona. Cindy was always concerned about the animals in her neighbourhood – often sharing her groceries with the birds, rabbits and squirrels. At Christmas time she would deliver cat treats to the cats in her condo building.
Cindy will be sadly missed by her father Arnold Vermette; sister Susan (Wendell) Wilkie; nephews Jonathan (Blair – sons Adrian and Oban), Ryan, Kiel (Denielle – daughter Lili and son Keith) and Brett (Saron – daughter Yougo and son Igo); her sweet fur baby Miss Fiona; and longtime friend and support Stacy Schikowsky, who was always there and just a phone call away.
She was predeceased by her mother Florence May Louisa Harper – January 14, 2012, brother John Joseph Berze – August 23, 1974 and her beloved puppy Cassie.
Special thanks to the staff at Southwood Hospice for making her last months comfortable and caring for her so much.

It is always hard to lose a good neighbour, but Cindy has a special place in our hearts. Her lovely smile and her helpful attitude will long be remembered. It always added a little fun to our day when we could spot Cindy in the hallway, often accompanied by her playful little white kitty, Fiona.
Cindy was the neighbour who remembered birthdays and who sent Christmas cards. She helped turn an otherwise bland condominium into a friendly village.
Much love, and we miss you, Cindy.

It was an honour to be Cindy’s friend for over 35 years. I’ll always cherish the fond memories of the times we shared, especially our annual tour of Christmas lights. She was a very special person with a kind heart and I’ll forevermore remember her with love.

Cindy was always so friendly and happy. I never heard her complain about any of her problems. I still remember how pretty she looked when she came with her mother to my daughter’s wedding. We will all miss you, Cindy—your lovely smile and your sense of humour.
