Amanda "Mandy" Kelly Deacon-Tolysz

October 9, 1986September 27, 2020

Passed away peacefully in her sleep. She is survived by her husband Marty, mother Jo and sister Tasha. She was a bright light of happiness and joy to all who knew her and her loss will be felt by many. She will now join her beloved father, Kelvin, where I am certain the two of them will get into all sorts of mischief.

We will hold a celebration of her life at a future date. Mandy loved animals and if you wish to honour her, a donation to the SPCA in her name would be appreciated.

I always knew that Mandy was someone special. We worked together at No Frills for about 5 years and had so many laughs together, and she always brightened up my day. Even when I quit we stayed in touch, she helped arrange my bridal shower and gave me advice that changed my life. Mandy was unbelievably selfless and the most loving person I know. She will be dearly missed.
My condolences to Marty and all her friends and family.

I am so sorry to hear about Mandy’s passing. Mandy and I worked together at No Frills for many years. She would always tell me that I reminded her of a younger version of herself, and I was honoured to hear that. She was always there to listen to me vent about everything and anything and always offered me the best advice. We would work together for every Thursday night closing shift and would always have the best times. Mandy was truly one of a kind and the nicest, kindest and selfless person you would have ever met. I consider myself lucky to have had her as a friend and someone I looked up to. May Mandy rest in the utmost peace. My condolences go out to Marty and the rest of Mandy’s friends and family❤️

I was absolutely devastated to hear Mandy is no longer with us. Working with her was an absolute pleasure, she was so kind-hearted, thoughtful and an overall wonderful person. Even though it has been years since we worked together, I have never forgotten the fun times we had together. Rest in peace Mandy.

Devastated when I heard the news of Mandy’s passing. She had such a special place in my heart! She was always there for me when I needed her; for advice or just for a shoulder to lean on. I will never forget the smile she would always put on my face with her bubbly, funny, and loving energy. Mandy, you’ll never be forgotten! My deepest condolences to her family. - Toria

I'm sorry I didn't see more of you mandy. You were a bright ray of sunshine. Thankyou for taking my Katy under your wing at no frills and friending with her. You meant so much to her. You will always be remembered by my family. Sincerest condolences to Marty.

I was absolutely devastated to hear of Mandy’s passing. Having known her for years, Mandy was truly one of a kind and we lost her way too soon. While I could use so many words to describe her there is no way to capture the essence that was Mandy (and those who know her know what I am talking about). From her bubbly personality to her crazy sense of style to the bright bursts of colour in her hair her presence was undeniable. She exuded an energy that had an immediate effect on anyone around her. She had the ability to make anyone laugh and you couldn’t help but smile when she was around. Always positive, smiling and optimistic even during the hard times. Never changing herself for anyone she truly was always her most authentic self and I greatly admired that about her. She was one of the most generous and caring people I know. Even when times were tough she always found a way to provide for those less fortunate than her (be it animals or humans). I will never forget all the great memories I had with Mandy during the years. From all the shifts worked together to our Sunday night Degrassi watch parties, Gilmore Girls nights, Swiss Chalet dates, nights out, concerts (Spice Girls!), our random walks around town or the mall and our long conversations about everything and sometimes nothing at all. Mandy, I’m still in disbelief that you are no longer a text or call away. I will forever miss the brightness you brought to this world.

I am so sorry to hear of Mandy's passing. I met Mandy in high school. She was always so kind, caring and considerate. She was an amazing person and she will be missed by many.

Mandy was such a beautiful sole. She was so kind, fun loving, and thoughtful. She frequently put the needs of others before herself and would do anything for everyone in her life. Mandy always had a smile on her face even when she was going through a difficult time. She cherished her family deeply and always talked about them. I will always carry fond thoughts and memories and her and she will always be in my heart. When I wash my hands I will always remember her famous line “this soap smells happy”. Miss you! LaLaLisa
