Virginia Georgopoulou-Jamil fiercely battled cancer until her final breath on June 15, 2022 surrounded by her loved ones. She leaves behind her husband and life partner of 41 years Elias Jamil; her five children Peter (Adele), Valentine (Miro), Joey (Donovan), George, and Alexis; her four grandsons Isaac, Anthony, Nathaniel, and Charlie, as well as her fur babies Marley, Mango, and Rüfüs. Hailing from Gytheio, Greece, Virginia led a life of grace, laughter, and endless recipes – cookies and cakes being her speciality. From being the loudest soccer mom on the field, to the most patient assistant to special education students, Virginia has left her mark on countless lives around the world. She has been reunited with her grandmother, dad, mom, brother, and sister.
The family would like to give endless thanks to Virginia’s entire medical team from Walker Cancer Centre in St Catharines, Douglas Memorial Hospital in Fort Erie, Saint Elizabeth’s, and of course Dr. K. Scher and PSW Rafeena. The unwavering love, support, and kindness from all the staff have made Virginia’s life much more full.
