Raymonde Abboud, age 70 passed away peacefully at Sakura House Hospice on May 3, 2021. Born in Zgarta, Lebanon, daughter of Alan and Rosette (Abboud).
Raymonde (Touta by family) immigrated to Canada in 1979 and being someone fluent in four languages quickly found employment to start her new life. Anyone who knew Raymonde immediately understood she was a compassionate and generous force. She not only took the time to get to know you but always had a funny story to share about her cats and dogs (her kids) or her latest Lebanese dish that she was willing to share. During her professional career, Raymonde held numerous Executive Assistant roles within the Telecommunications and Insurance sectors. She was the driving force behind many a CEO. Raymonde retired to Stratford in 2015 and immediately got involved with the Roman Catholic Church, the Stratford General Hospital and other local charities. The one constant in Raymonde’s life was her faith and a belief that everyone is created equal.
Raymonde is survived by her brother Victor Abbott (Lisa), nieces Katarina and Christianna French. She will be remembered by her many close friends.
