Rizk-VirginiaVirginia Rizk
(née Choueiri)
Passed away peacefully in her sleep on the early morning of Thursday, June 11, 2020.
Beloved wife of the late Elias (Louis) Rizk.
Loving mother of Denise (Joseph Issa),  Tom ( Sarah King) , Doreen (Philippe Abou-Hanna), George  (Lidia Zogheb) and  John (Shawna  Diotte).
Cherished grandmother of Marie (Ronald Schneider), Elias (Louis) Abou-Hanna,  Natalie (Salah Alkadhi)  Odette, Anne-Marie and  Abraham Issa; Jada and  Benjamin Rizk;  Kayla  Elias and  Ava Rizk;  great-grandmother of Mya  Ann, Anastasia and  Leland Schneider;  and Gabriel Alkadhi.
Dear  sister of Jeannette ( late Bob Schewirey), late  Tanios (Connie), late  Hassib (Rose Chahine)  and late Michel Choueiri.
She was the matriarch of the Louis Restaurant family and helped many people establish themselves and their families in Ottawa. Like her husband Louis, she lived her life in service to her family. A role model to all who knew her, she lived a life of generosity, integrity, and grace. May her memory be eternal.
We would also like to extend a sincere thank you to the Ottawa General Hospital for their years of care.
Due to extraordinary circumstances related to COVID-19, a private funeral service will be held on Monday, June 15, 2020 and will be limited to immediate family.
In memory of Virginia, online donations to St. Elias Cathedral would be appreciated.
