My special special Aunt Dina, my favourite Aunt and friend. The lady with that hypnotic smile & kind heart. One of my Moms truest friend & sister in law. You were always there for us in our time of need and forever keeping spirits high and for that no words could ever express our love & gratitude for such a wonderful woman. Rest In Peace my dearest Aunt and know how much you were loved and are still loved
My special. special Aunt. You were always there for us “at moments notice” when mom was sick. It didn’t matter what time it was, you were always there. I don’t think you knew how much your strength and smile made me feel better. I will miss you so much. I can just imagine how much “mischief “ you and mom are getting into. Like I said to mom, “go enjoy your new adventure “.
Please tell her I miss her and love her ❤️
Take care of each other
I will always know Dina as the life of any party! At any family event, she was the one who was talking & making the rounds with everyone, always laughing & saying whatever she felt. Seeing her at their 50th Anniversary was wonderful & I'm so very glad that she was able to enjoy that day to the fullest. She was a great lady, loved by many & I feel very fortunate to have known her. Sending her family my condolences. Just say her name, & she'll be there in your heart.
-Friend of the family,

And extended family members
I am truly saddened to hear of Dina's death but I know she is with her Lord, free of pain and suffering; but I miss her.
Dina and I first knew each other some 55 years ago when growing up attending the same church in Guelph. Later on in life we lost touch with each other but, re-connected with each other when I moved to Brantford.
Occasionally I would see her at Timmies where she worked but our main connection was in attending the same church. Here she was my sparing partner, and oh did we get into it at times, always ending by saying "still friends", hug each other and carry on.
She was my greatest supporter at our church auction sales by saying, "here, take this gift and sell it, I don't need it" I will miss her generosity and great sense of humor.
My deepest sympathy to all family members, may many fond memories of happier times carry you through the difficult times.
My deepest condolences to Dina's husband and children with the death of a beloved wife and mother and grandmother. Dina was a dear friend of mine in our church family and she will be missed for her generous loving heart and great sense of humour.

To Dina's family,
I was truly sadden to hear of Dina's passing.
Dina was known to me from our "morning meetings" at the Garden Ave "Timmy's", with those that I worked with.
Her "Good Morning" always brought to me a good way to start the day.
She made me laugh and invited herself to our table (with the occasional goodies...Shhh) ...and she was always a welcomed site, and she always made us feel welcomed. A GREAT quality!
She will be missed, and remembered, but I know she is at peace...
Peace be with you Dina, and to the Foster family,
