Obituary of Connie Lewin

LEWIN, CONSTANCE “CONNIE” TERESA March 21, 1961 - June 3, 2022 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of a much loved member of our family, Connie Lewin. Connie is the beloved daughter of Joseph and Annette (deceased) Lewin, sister of Jo-Anne (Peter) Honeyborne, Cindy (Jim) Pitt, Cathy (Guy - deceased) and Chris Lewin (April White). She is the aunt of Patrick (Rebecca) Heaney, Geoffrey Heaney (godson), William Lewin, Cameron (Kaitlyn) Honeyborne and Lianne Honeyborne. She is also the great-aunt of Emily & Oliver Heaney and Lillian Honeyborne. Connie was also a member of another family: her friends and colleagues at the John M. Kelly Library at the University of St. Michael’s College, U of T. This September would have marked her 38 years of work and service there. In her work life, Connie employed exacting standards and was very conscientious in her work. Connie’s time spent at the library was very important to her, and being surrounded by books and computers fed her love of reading, researching and writing. Connie was one who embraced evolving technologies and used them to stay current and effective in her work and to indulge her passions at home. Connie developed many passions in her life. In terms of media, she loved all things British, including novels, murder mysteries, tv series and movies. She loved nature, whether it was going for walks in green spaces, growing her own plants and herbs or displaying her sensitivity towards all creatures, especially vulnerable ones. Travel was another passion of her’s. She visited many different places here, in the States and in Europe. Connie had a creative side as well. She enjoyed writing, listening to classical music and trained vocalists, attending theatre with family and friends, watching movies with friends, displaying and arranging flowers with flair and visiting art museums. Most of all, she was well known for her skills in cooking and baking - she was best known for her butter tarts and pumpkin pies. People close to Connie knew her to be an independent spirit. She was an individual who knew her own mind and wasn’t afraid to speak it. She valued honesty and a sense of civility; above all, she valued respect for others and kindness in her relationships and in her everyday interactions. A very private person, Connie enjoyed quiet, one-on-one interactions with family and friends. At these times, she would offer her opinions on various subjects and display her great wit and sense of humour. Not a fan of large gatherings, she would nevertheless attend important functions because of her sense of loyalty to her family, friends and work. Connie lived life on her own terms and would not have had it any other way. Gone too soon, she will be greatly missed by her family and friends.A private service will take place for her immediate family only. If desired, memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Canadian Wildlife Federation would be appreciated by Connie's family.
