Cindy Lee Russo
December 22, 1960 – October 13, 2012
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Cindy on October 13th in the Palliative Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital following a courageous battle with multiple sclerosis.
Cindy is survived by her parents, Bob and Mae Hamlyn; brother, Chris (Peggy); sister, Lara (Ron); nephews, Jordan, Tristan and Spencer; niece, Abby (Marc); great nephew, Nathan; and special friend, Ed Malinski in San Diego.
Her family would like to thank all the staff at Dufferin Place as well as the nurses, doctors and volunteers in the Palliative Care Unit for all their kindness and compassion.
A family memorial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation toward the Palliative Care Unit would be appreciated.
