I've had the privilege of knowing Nina over the past ten years or so through our mah-jong group. Her thoughtfulness, concern and warmth always shone through. Her love of family and friends set and will always be an example. Although there was a generational difference I appreciated and will always remember her understanding, grasp and enjoyment of life.

Naomi Carniol - 8 days ago

Dear Cass family, My heart goes out to you for this immense loss. Nina was a wonderful person, so full of light and laughter. She was one of my grandmother Aida's closest friends. They called themselves, The girls. It was always a delight to visit Montreal and Florida and spend time with The girls. Whenever I saw Nina, she would proudly share the latest news about her family. And she always asked me what was new in my world. Nina showed so much compassion to both my grandparents in their later years when she visited with them nearly every day. She was a very special person and I will miss hearing her voice and seeing her beautiful smile.

Alice & Harold Lehrer - 8 days ago

Dear Mayme, We send our heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Your devotion to your mother was perfect., May you find consolation in the memories of her lifetime.

Jerry and Anne Tollinsky - 8 days ago

If your are related to Nina,z'l as a family member or as one of the many who counted her as a true and loyal friend and inspiration, your hearts are heavy and full today. In her relationships with everyone Nina always showed grace and strength, always with a positive attitude. I am honoured to say that my connection to my cousin Nina started on the eighth day of my life when my parents, Goldie and Max, z'l charged her with the responsibility of caring for me should anything ever happen to them. Our relationship was a loving and meaningful one always, even as we spoke just before Pesach and a few weeks before when I spoke to her from India. My fondest story goes back about three years ago when I invited her out to dinner in Montreal. While reviewing the menu, Nina assured me that she wouldn't mind leaving in order to find a more reasonable venue. And as we were about to order dessert she again offered to go somewhere else as she didn't want me to spend so much money!!! Whenever she came to Toronto to visit with her grandchildren and great grandchildren she always made a point of calling Anne to advise her that even with a tight schedule she could see us for one hour starting at 11:30 , where we were to pick her up from and where we were to drop her off later. There was room in Nina's heart for every person she knew. Nobody ever had too much of Nina. That's why we are all grieving her loss. It is our bracha that her memory will be a blessing to the family we love and that we should all find comfort knowing that we were the lucky ones to spend ninety seven years with this special Eyset Chayil, woman of valour. BDE

Rhona Phillips-Carniol - 9 days ago

Dear Peter, Mayme, Shelley and Alice and families I've been thinking all of yesterday of your mother and how her life was so full and so involved with that of my parents, Aida and Syd: from being a rival of my father's in high school, to making sandwiches with my mother in the basement, to driving to Niagara for a glimpse of our baby Mira, to Saturday morning Kiddishes at your parents' home, to attending the wedding of our younger daughter Naomi.. the list goes on and on. And now the weather has prevented Ben and I from driving in from Toronto to her funeral. We will be thinking of you all and of her and your father today and for many days to come. Love Rhona

Renalee Gore - 9 days ago

Dear Cass Family, My mom and Nina were friends for 87 years since they were nine years old, part of the "Cheery Chums." How amazing and special is that. Nina was so loved and cherished, and always will be by the entire Gore Family , myself very much included. She was an amazing person filled with love , hope, positivity ,wisdom and compassion with an incredibly sharp mind . She led life to it's fullest no matter what- such an amazing example to all those who were lucky enough to know her. My favorite "Nina and Connie "story was the day my mom and Nina went out to recess when they were 9 years old and my mom decided she really didn't like her name- "Sarah." Nina said she thought the name Connie was a good name - I think Nina said she had a cousin named Connie and so my mom decided she liked it went in from recess and announced her name was now Connie and she has been Connie ever since. My Mom and Dad met at Nina's Grandfather's hotel up North , my dad having gone up there with some buddies by train, and my mom hitchhiking up there with a friend to see Nina. The cheery chums, Nina, Connie, Ruthie, Ada, Rosie, Tillie, Judy-( I may have forgotten someone) friends for so many years. Nina you lit up so many people's lives. You were such an inspiration and were truly loved by so many .And you were such a good friend to my mom. You will be dearly missed. I am so sorry that I will miss Nina's service as I am away. Renalee Gore

Donna and Eric Rodier - 9 days ago

Dear Mayme, Richard, Shelley, Alice, Peter and families, Our deepest condolences to you all at this very sad time.

Our friendship very soon expanded to include Mayme and Richard and the extended family; over the years, we shared some sad times but also many simchas and celebrations together. Nina was an exceptional woman....bright, warm, thoughtful and inspirational, with a sharp memory and zest for life. She certainly saw the cup as half full. May all the cherished memories of the wonderful and meaningful times you each shared with her be a great source of comfort to you. Donna and Eric

Marianne Constantine - 10 days ago

To all the Cass family, As a a young married woman ,I was first introduced to Nina while she ran a successful business of making the best sandwich loaves and party sandwiches ,many of us less creative and less talented ordered from her for our various special lunches and parties.Later on Shelly, if you remember, you were my "mother's helper" in the 1960's. Over the years I met up with Nina many times playing Mah Jongg a couple of times or at the hairdresser almost weekly . Nina forever up-beat active, smiling and friendly talking about her beloved choir or bringing me up to date on the children. I saw her for the last time about 3 weeks ago still out and about in the Mall . I am so sorry that she passed away , my deepest condolences to all family members.
