SAMUEL, Elaine - Imagine if we were given one moment, just a single slice of our past. We could hold it close forever, and that moment would always last. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of our mother Elaine Samuel (nee Elaine Marie Primeau) on January 4, 2013. Predeceased by parents Louis and Bessie Primeau and husband Henry Benjamin Cleveland. Extraordinary mother of Ben, Dave, Rick, Bill, Kelly, Kristy and Bob. Lovingly remembered by her many grandchildren and great- grandchildren; and partner Robert. Visitation will be held at 6 p.m. on January 7th at Bates & Dodds Funeral Services, 931 Queen Street West, Toronto; followed by a Memorial Service at 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to St. Joseph's Health Centre, Canadian Diabetes Association or the Daily Food Bank.
