SINGER, Floriana - Peacefully, with her family by her side at the Woodstock Private Hospital on Friday, May 20, 2016, at the age of 91. Floriana Singer (née Grygorcewicz) was born in Belarus to Alexander Grygorcewicz and Ania Farbotka on a cold morning on February 8, 1925. She was the youngest of 5 siblings. She became deaf at the age of 13, survived WWII, came to Canada in May 1956, then married Joseph Singer (who predeceased her in 1992) on July 24 1956. She raised 3 children with love. Anthony (Linda), Leon (Donna), Anna Garreau (Norman). And kept loving the one she lost, Micheal in 1960. She was blessed with many grandchildren. Alyssa (Andrew), Tiffany (Dan), Andrew, Caitlin, Joseph (Brittany), Adam, Sabrina, Johnny, Monique (Aaron), Michelle (Zsolt) and Alexandria. Great-grandchildren Charlie, Peyton, Sophie and Aria. She will be dearly missed by Genik, Krystyna and Jadzia Grygorcewicz and their families. Babcia was a strong and stubborn lady who was also loving, kind and had a sense of humour. Anyone who knew her loved and respected her. She was our rock and we will keep being her loving family. We would like to thank the caring and wonderful nurses and staff at the Woodstock Private Hospital for helping with Floriana this past year. Friends will be received at the SMITH-LeROY FUNERAL HOME , 69 Wellington Street North, Woodstock on Tuesday, May 24, 2016, (NOTE TIME) from 11-1 pm and 6 - 8 pm. The Rosary will be said at 8 pm.
