July 30, 1933 – April 17, 2021
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother and best friend Juanita Irene Cassidy (Kortzman) on April 17, 2021. She was born in Bruce, Alberta on July 30, 1933.
Mom was predeceased by her loving son Clayton Cassidy, her parents Myrtle and Walter Kortzman, her sister Georgina Robert and her daughter in law Vivian Cassidy. She is survived by two brothers, Lyall and Walter Kortzman and sister Karen (Dwayne) Hislop.
She also leaves her seven loving children, Linda (Gerald) Weingart, Martin Cassidy, Vince (Laura) Cassidy, Patrick Cassidy, Raymond (Casey) Cassidy, Bruce (Myrna) Cassidy, Tavi (Steve) Eden, and daughter in law Rose Cassidy.
She was so very proud of her 21 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren and showered them with love and support. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Mom’s love of music has been passed down and will be cherished by all of us for generations to come. Mom was infamous for her homemade bread, buns, perogies and Gram jam.
Mom will always hold a special place in our hearts. “Gramfest or Bust” Do it, Do it, Do it! In lieu of flowers donations to the Alzheimer Society would be greatly appreciated.
A celebration of life for our mom will be held at a later date.
