Obituary of Elena (Follo) Mabardi
Our beloved Elena Mabardi was born in Egypt May 20, 1944 and passed away on Wednesday January 19, 2022 at Southlake Regional Health Centre at the age of 77. She was the third child of Francesco Follo, and Fotini Carascostidis Follo. Beloved wife of the late Fernand Gamil Mabardi. Loving mother of Daniela and her husband Andre, Roger and his wife Mary, Silvia and her husband Nour. Cherished grandmother to Eric and his wife Kat, Joey, Claudia, Anthony, Andrea, Matthew and Veronica. Survived by brother Nicola. Elena migrated to Canada in 1968, Elena was a person who was full of love, and was kind and gracious to all. Elena was a person who loved her family, and also loved the creator, and believed in him. Elena did not want anyone to suffer, with her passing, she wanted all to find comfort in the scriptures. An account that she loved was the account of Lazarus found in the book of John 11:1-43, it was painful for Jesus to see that his friend died, so Jesus resurrected Lazarus. Elena was moved by this account and she now awaits for the day when all our dead loved ones will see the resurrection take place. John 5:28 says: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. Elena also believed that the dead are in a state of unconsciousness, as stated in Ecclesiastes 9:5: “For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all”. So we await the day when she will live again according to God’s promise. Elena wanted to come back to earth to live in a paradise, where no one will experience death again but enjoy a life full of peace and harmony under God's rulership as mention in Isaiah 26:19, another scripture which meant a lot to Elena believed that her God Jehovah looks forward to resurrect her back to life the way it is described in the book of Job 14:15: “You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands”. Elena will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
