Fanny Ahad, aged 95, passed away on Saturday, September 16, 2023. She will always be fondly remembered by her children Robert (Mayumi Morita) and Edward (late Joni Linetsky), as well as her grandchildren Tatsuya and Erica. Fanny leaves behind a wide network of extended family and friends who will deeply mourn her loss.
Fanny Terzian was born in Cairo, Egypt, the daughter of Georges and Ebrax Terzian. During her early years, Fanny and her family relocated to various countries, including Iraq and India, before settling back in Cairo where she began her professional career. It was in the early 1950s that Fanny crossed paths with Alphonse Ahad at Nasita, a Cairo company. The couple fell in love, got married, and swiftly started a family with the arrival of their sons, Robert and Edward.
In 1962, the Ahad family moved to Montreal, Canada. Fanny initially worked as a secretary before progressing into administrative roles. Fanny and Alphonse spent the majority of their married life in Montreal, residing first in a cozy apartment in Ahuntsic, and later in a fine home on the West Island. In 1984, they relocated to Mississauga, Ontario, where both Fanny and Alphonse continued working until their joint retirement in the early 1990s. Subsequently, in 1994, the couple returned to Montreal, settling in Ville St. Laurent where they savored over 25 joyful years together.
