Mery Norena (nee Castrillon)
May 10, 1943 - November 23, 2014
Died peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 71. Born and married in Colombia, Mery is predeceased by her husband Marco, who joined her in her vision to build a new life in Canada. It's here she followed her dreams, raising her five successful children and opening her home (and kitchen) to countless family members and friends. Mery is survived by her children Trudy Duque (Carlos), Mark, Rodrigo, Helen Frederickson (Dave) and Nancy Harrison (Patrick). She was also a dynamic, loving Mita (grandmother) to Tiffany, Ashleigh, Shay-Marie, Camille, Lucas, Marco, Philip and Oscar and shared with them her pioneering spirit, great love for music and playing piano, cooking for her family and surrounding herself with the people most important to her. Mery's children and grandchildren find comfort in her memory and will keep her legacy alive.
