Obituary of Marie-Thérèse Kothawala





A shining light was extinguished in the early hours of Saturday, August 4, 2018. Marie-Thérèse was no ordinary light. Thérèse left behind in her aura an inconsolable and devoted husband, Percy of 53 years; her treasured daughter Anne (John); and two wonderful and deeply loving grandsons Eric and Justin, both of whom loved and looked up to their extraordinary grandmother. 

Thérèse saw goodness in all. Her warmth, caring and compassion touched countless family and friends.

Those that knew her well admired her stoicism and courage as she endured without complaint the aftermath of life-altering cancer surgery.

Thérèse was the shining light in the lives of her family, relatives and friends. Her legacy by example will endure for generations.


A funeral service will be held at the Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles – Newbigging Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville Avenue) on Friday, August 10th at 1:00 p.m. followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Princess Margaret Hospital.  Condolences, photographs and memories may be forwarded through
