Couto, Anabela

Anabela Couto, a loving mother, devoted grandmother, and a kind soul, passed away on July 27, 2023, at the age of 61. Born on July 31, 1961, in Portugal, Anabela's life was filled with love, joy, and selflessness.

Survived by her only daughter, Victoria, and son-in-law, Sean, Anabela's greatest pride and joy were her three beloved grandchildren: Kathryn, James, and Olivia. They were the light of her life, and she cherished every moment spent with them, sharing her kindness, generosity, and love.

Bela was known for her warm and caring nature, always putting others before herself and offering a helping hand to anyone in need. Her friends and family were touched by her unwavering support and affectionate presence.

After moving to Toronto, Ontario, Anabela embraced her faith and became an active member of St. Helen’s Catholic Church. Her spirituality was a guiding force in her life and shaped her into a compassionate and empathetic person.

In her final days, Anabela found comfort and care at Maison McCulloch Hospice in Sudbury, Ontario, where she was surrounded by loved ones and dedicated medical staff.

Details for the funeral service will be announced shortly, as family and friends come together to celebrate Anabela's life and bid her a heartfelt farewell.

Anabela Couto leaves behind cherished memories and an enduring legacy of love and kindness. She will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

May her soul rest in peace.

  1. We will always remember her presence. Warm hearted smiles, big belly laughs, dancing-our-hearts-out kind of spirit. Anna showed me the deep love and support that I needed from a Madrinha. I’m forever grateful 🥰.

  2. Where to begin…from karaoke dance parties on the west mall, road trips to wasaga, my love of arroz doce,
    my hatred of warmed up cheerios and milk to cure a hangover, and your unwavering support through the rollercoaster teenage years – all these memories mean the world to me. The patience and love you showed me, who you referred to as your second daughter (even during those late-night Pinky and the Brain sing-alongs with Vick) will forever be cherished. You were one resilient soul, showing incredible strength in every aspect of life. May you finally find peace. Love always, Shell xoxo
