Tribute to Rochelle de Torres

Dear friends, family, and loved ones,

On December 13, 2017, we lost our precious Rochelle. She was a daughter, sister, beloved friend, and soulmate. Up to the very end, she was an extraordinarily creative, kind, good-humoured, and courageous woman. She was all the shine in this troubled world. We will miss her forever.

Please donate to give the best girl in the world the farewell she deserves.

My name is Michael Reid, and I represent the Reid-De Torres family.  Rochelle was my sister-in-law.  All proceeds will go towards paying for Rochelle's funeral (including the receptions) as well as offsetting the living costs of Agnes de Torres (her mother) and Adam Reid (her widower). The money will be withdrawn by either myself or my mother -- both of us will be handling the logistics on behalf of Agnes and Adam. The funds will be used in accordance with the wishes of Rochelle's closest family members.

On Tuesday, January 23, there will be a funeral mass for the immediate family only, followed by interment at Christ the King Catholic Cemetery (7770 Steeles Avenue East in Markham). 

On Saturday, January 27, a Memorial Mass Service at 10:00 am will be held at St. Rose of Lima Parish at 3216 Lawrence Avenue East, Scarborough, ON M1H 1A4. This mass service is open to the public.

Following the memorial, mass there will also be a Celebration of Rochelle's Life at Kennedy Convention Centre located at 1199 Kennedy Road, Scarborough, ON M1P 2L2 from 12 noon until 3:00 pm.

With deepest sympathy and all our love,

Michael Reid
