Nezia Maria Faria

June 30, 1959 ~ February 7, 2021 (age 61)


With sadness in their hearts, the family of Nezia (Nina) Faria announce her passing on February 7, 2021.  Taken too soon at 61 years of age, Nina will always be lovingly remembered by the family that adored her - her daughters, Jennifer Faria and Kristin Grasby; and her husband of 41 years, Juvenal Faria.

Born in Kingston, ON on June 30, 1959, Nina spent most of her life exploring the world.  After marrying Juvenal in 1980, his work had them living in many international locations, including Brazil, Malaysia, Dubai, Oman, and Saudi Arabia.

Like everything she did in life, Nina navigated through all of these new experiences with positivity, kindness, and an open mind.  She loved tending to her family, friends, and home - her favourite thing to do was to host and entertain, and her highly caring nature brought her a lot of friendships that have lasted to this day.

Nina was always putting the needs of others before herself.  Even in her final days, she was regularly smiling and complimenting the palliative care staff that supported her, and laughing with her family.  Although she may be physically gone, the light and love she brought to her family and friends, will live on forever.
