It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Iona Ayoub (née Leonard) at the Lakeshore General Hospital on November 4 at the age of 87.

Iona was predeceased by her husband Nicholas Ayoub, and is survived by her loving children Nicki Lynn, Jimmy (Lyne), Nicky (Cyndi) and Joey (Quynh), grandchildren Evan, Arielle, Niko, Emma Lan, Malu, Nora, and several great-grandchildren.

Iona was born on December 9, 1929 in Vankleek Hill, Ontario. She met her husband, jazz musician Nicholas Ayoub, and they were married in 1951. Iona dedicated herself to raising her 4 children and was a loving, selfless mother always present in their lives.

She will be sadly missed by her family and is in peace now after a lengthy struggle with her illness.
