DAMIAN, Cornelia “Ada”

September 12, 1924 – Bucharest, Romania
February 19, 2014 – Calgary, AB

Ada Damian of Calgary passed away on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at the age of 89 years.

Ada was born on September 12, 1924 in Bucharest, Romania; the older sister of Lucia Faur with whom she had a very close connection all throughout the years.

A brilliant mind, Ada studied medicine and graduated top woman and second in her class. She practiced as a pediatrician until the age of 56 when she came to Canada to be close to her sister Lucia and niece Irina. In her practice, she took care of hundreds of children with her legendary competence and compassion. Her nickname amongst colleagues and patients was “the Angel”, and everyone who knew her would understand why. After retiring, she focused all her love and dedication to help raise her grand children to become the decent and caring adults they are today.

Ada will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her, but most of all by her adoring and adored niece, Irina, and grandchildren Jonathan and Olivia.

Rest in peace our guardian Angel.

Funeral Services will be held at Holy Martyr Peter The Aleut Orthodox Church (1939- 33 Ave SW) on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery. Condolences may be forwarded through
