It is with an indescribable sense of loss that Rae Dunphy's family announces her untimely passing from cancer, on May 6, 2013. She embodied uncompromising love, generosity, and grace, and will be missed by anyone fortunate enough to have crossed paths with her. She is survived by a deeply grieving family: her husband of 27 years, Jeff; daughters, Camilla (Newell), Laurel (Sharad, grandson Roshan), Carmen, and Laine (Shawn); sister, Leslie (Jack, sons, Sean and Cameron); and sisters-in-law, Jane, Tarra, and their families, and an incredibly wide and loving extended community of family and friends. A passionate leader in the natural health industry in Canada, Rae has left a legacy of wisdom in her business, Rae Dunphy Aromatics, which has passed into the capable hands of her husband and partner, Jeff. The family expresses their profound gratitude for the compassionate care she received in Unit 47 at Foothills. A Celebration of Life will be held at Parkdale United Church, 2919 - 8 Avenue N.W., on Friday, May 10 at 2:30 p.m. with reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Sleeping Children Around the World (www.scaw.org). Condolences and queries to Camilla (email@example.com).
