Coelho, Philomena Marie Theresa

Philomena passed away unexpectedly on April 25, 2019. Philomena was the beloved daughter of Basil and Agnes Coelho, sister to Gladys Marie and predeceased by her other siblings, Clarence, Dorothy, Edith, Ferdinand, and Hector. She is survived by her many nephews and nieces and their children.
Even though Philomena (or Aunty Bubbles as she was known to her nieces and nephews) was orphaned at a young age, she overcame many challenges to graduate with a degree in medicine from the University of Sheffield, England in 1959. She emigrated to Canada and completed her Fellowship before setting up her practice as an Obstetrician and Gynecologist with an affiliation to St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. She was a dedicated physician, providing exemplary care to her patients until her retirement in 1996. She was an avid sailor and loved to spend her free time on the water. She travelled extensively, was a lover of classical music, and regularly attended the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. She was also a devout Catholic and found solace in her faith.
As per Philomena’s wishes there will be no visitation. A funeral mass will be held on Friday, May 3, 2019 at 11 am at St. Joan of Arc Church, 1701 Bloor St. West, Toronto, Ontario, followed by the interment at Holy Cross Cemetery, 8361 Yonge St., Thornhill, Ontario.

Dear All, I'm sorry for the loss of Aunty Philomena, so suddenly.. accept my sincere sympathies.. Aunty was my Godmother and my mother's childhood friend. It's beautiful to see a friendship like theirs. Which then led to Aunty Philomena becoming my Godmother. She was special and will always remain dear to my heart. God bless, Karen.

My Dearest Godmother, Aunty Philomena.. the only thing, I regret is that I never told you, I love you... You were such a great Godmother to me. In fact on our last conversation on Easter Monday, (just 4 days, before you left us) that's what I told you, that I wish I could be a better Godmother to my Godchildren as you were to me. I have to thank God, for giving me the privilege to be your Godchild. And also for our last conversation on Easter Monday when we wished each other and spoke for about 29mins. I will always cherish your last words to me - God bless and Thank you. You will always have a special place in my heart and in my prayers. Love you, Aunty Philomena.

Philomena was my mother Edith's (Eddie) youngest sister. She was known in the family and friends as Bubbles. Her Journey on this earth came to an end at 5.55 pm on April 25 2019. She is now resting in peace with the Lord. Eternal Rest grant unto her O Lord and may her soul and the souls of the faithful departed rest in Peace.
