Raisa Konstantinova

Obituary of Raisa Konstantinova

It is with great difficulty that the family of Raisa Konstantinova (the Alsayed’s) announce her passing on Thursday, September 24th, 2020, at the age of 75, surrounded by her family.


Raisa’s beautiful smile, positive energy, and unconditional love for life will be missed by her daughter Larissa, her son-in-law, Anthony, and her two grand-daughters Suzanna and Julie.


She is predeceased by her parents Klavdia and Afanasiy.


Raisa followed her daughter and family from Orsk, Russia, and slowly adapted to her new journey in Ontario. Those who had the honor the know or meet her, would describe her as a ray of sunshine, a woman that was one with nature, generous, caring, and loved her family with everything she had. Her favourite pass time was gardening, sowing, and remodeling clothes. She would start gardening from scratch, and then take care of the plants, water them, observe them flourish, and ensured that once that once the harvest was ready – to make the most delicious meal for her family. On top of that she would drop everything in order to help her family and friends, because she wanted to ensure that they were safe, fed, and happy. Raisa wanted them to enjoy life, wake up in the morning, proclaim gratitude, and thank the universe for everything that we have and own. She was selfless, beautiful, hardworking, stylish, a true fashionista, and always wearing bright colors. Her friends knew her by her golden touch, no matter what she did, it was perfect. The way she sowed, cooked, and gardened – it was flawless.


We would not be the family today, without being blessed by her presence, and purity. On September 24th 2020, part of our soul has left with her. Mii Tebia Lubim Babulia. Celuem.
