Nona Razeena Fernando peacefully passed away at Twin Lakes Nursing Home. As per Muslim tradition her body was prepared and laid to rest on June 21, 2020, the day of her passing.

Survived by her daughter Aruna, son in law Dale, grandson David and granddaughter April. She loved her grandchildren; they were the pride of her life.

She was born in Budulla, Sri Lanka. Of 9 children, 8 of which were sisters, with only one brother, she was the youngest. She is survived by her two sisters Nantha and Bunget, several nieces and nephews most of whom still reside in Sri Lanka. Her nephew Tony and his family are in Ontario; they were able to be part of laying her to rest.

She was the first of her family to go to post secondary education. She studied nursing. While working in a hospital in Sri Lanka she met her future husband Aaron. They both went to England in 1958 to further their studies. She became a midwife and studied ophthalmology. She married the love of her life in Bangor N. Wales in Dec 1959. In 1965 the couple immigrated to Canada in hopes for a better life. In 1969 they became Canadian Citizens. The family resided in three different provinces including Saskatchewan, B.C, and Ontario. She enjoyed being a nurse and helping others, and continued to work part time while raising her daughter Aruna. She was involved in Girl Guides. She enjoyed crafts, puzzles, ballroom dancing, and animals. She always took pride in her appearance and loved to shop.
