Teodora Ruinsky

November 1, 1930 — November 15, 2022

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother, Teodora Ruinsky. She passed away peacefully at home on November 15, 2022 at the age of 92. She is now reunited with her cherished husband Mauricio. Loving mother of Claudia (Claudio) and proud grandmother of Jessica (Carter) and Daniella in Canada.
Teodora made the difficult decision to leave Argentina in 1977 in the hopes of a better future for her daughter. She left behind an Argentinian family who she missed dearly (Agustin, Maria Cristina, Romina, Soledad, Allegra, Sebastian, and Maria Elena) as well as close friends, and she wished she could have spent more time with them over the years. She was always grateful to her brother-in-law, Michael, for sponsoring the family to come to Canada.

Tia Maria will be remembered as an amazing cook. She loved cooking empanadas and green pizza for her family, especially her nieces and brother- and sister-in-law. Teodora enjoyed travelling with her family to many places, including Europe, the Caribbean, Argentina, and many trips to Niagara Falls. She had a soft spot for animals and rescued several over her lifetime. She will be missed by her furry friend Rocky.
Mom’s world was her family. This was very obvious to anyone who knew her. She will be remembered in the hearts of her extended family and friends in Canada and Argentina. Rest in peace, we love you so much.

Visitation will be held at Westminster Funeral & Reception Centre (5826 Bathurst St. between Finch and Steeles on the west side), located on the grounds of Westminster Cemetery (5830 Bathurst St.). After the long driveway, it is the first building on your left. The family will receive guests on Friday, November 18, 2022, from 12:00 p.m. until the commencement of the Funeral Service in the Chapel of Westminster at 2:00 p.m. with entombment to follow at Westminster Mausoleum.
