PINTO, Ludivina (Ludy)

It is with great sadness, and very heavy hearts that the family of Ludy Pinto announces her passing on August, 29, 2021, at the age of 71.
Ludy will be forever remembered by her husband of 48 years, Raymond, sons Jeremy (Sarah) and David (Kait), brothers Angelo (Kamala) and Hernes (Mabel), and numerous nieces and nephews. Ludy had a passion for adventure and enjoyed travelling to all corners of the globe. She had the kindest of hearts, and could instantly become friends with anyone that she met, including perfect strangers. Ludy was incredibly dedicated to community service and generously committed her time and energy volunteering with numerous non-profits organizations including the Canadian Cancer Society, The United Way, Syrian Refugee Relief, her local Church and many others. She was a vigorous reader and consumer of books, an animal lover, and a true patriotic Canadian. Ludy was predeceased by her first son Jeffrey, father Acacio, mother Satira, brothers Noyel, Percy and Hernes number 1. A celebration of life will announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a memorial donation in Ludy’s name, to the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Edmonton branch. Please visit to make a donation.

Salim Kheraj

Dear Raymond and families

There can never be enough words to do justice to describe Ludy, my dearest friend who will be sorely missed forever. Ludy was a remarkable person that I had ever met in my life and a wonderful, classy lady with a beautiful soul. Her caring ways, her infectious laughs and helpful nature epitomised her. Life was never about her but for the people around her. She was everyone’s true and helpful friend.

To you Raymond, your families and all friends and relatives, my condolences and thoughtful silences that whisper softly of caring. Life, as it is such… does not and cannot prepare anyone for this eventuality. We are all hurting for our great loss. May the Lord give us all the strength and courage to bear the loss of this magnitude and pray for her soul to rest in eternal peace in heaven. Amen.

Salim Kheraj

Dearest Raymond, David and Jeremy,
We loved Ludy very much!!! So many memories from when we were young in Fort McMurray playing at your guys house, her beautiful smile and laugh and spirit really impacted me at that young age. Her laughing as we coasted over and over down the stairs with you guys in your Fort McMurray house. I remember the camping trips and times together in St.Paul and then also times in Edmonton when we would get to see her at my parents’ house. I am so thankful to have gotten to spend such a good amount of time in my formative years around your mom, sometimes it is in times like these that you realize the most how an individual has had such a positive impact on you. I always felt so loved and warm in her presence, with her smile and kindness, her friendliness, warmth and understanding. I too am glad that she is no longer suffering and that she is now close with many of her loved ones in heaven!! Love the 3 of you very much, the 3 of you are part of all these amazing, warm and wonderful memories and we are and have been thinking about you sooo much!!!❤️Grateful for Aunty Ludy’s and your lives and being able to have been in her and your lives and she and you in ours!! Thankful for what Aunty Ludy has taught us about life and thankful Aunty Ludy is at rest and peace!!❤️❤️❤️
With love,
Indra and family

Our deepest sympathy and condolences to Raymond, Jeremy/Sarah, David/Kait, Ludy’s siblings and their families. A very difficult time for all of you, and our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Ludy was a wonderful, intelligent, kind woman and a beautiful person, both inside and outside. She was blessed with a heart of gold, always kind and compassionate, never an unkind word or deed. You gave so much of yourself to your family and friends, Ludy, and we will miss you very, very much.

Ludy had many interests and pursued them with passion. We shared a love of reading, a love for music and the arts, bird watching, political debates, discussing parenting, exchanging fitness tips and much, much more.

Words cannot describe the loss and numbness we feel now, for we have lost a loving and loyal friend.
Rest in peace, our beautiful friend.

Reminds us of you.
Odette & Ludo

Dearest Raymond, Jeremy & David,
I’m deeply saddened by the loss of my dearest and closest friend. Ludy was an amazing person. She was kind, caring, warm and genuine. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She was also a great listener and was very wise and always knew the right thing to say to make you feel better. Ludy meant a great deal to me and was loved and admired by many. I have known Ludy for over 50 years. We had lots of fun and laughs working together in Dar. Even though we went our separate ways, we always made time to reconnect. We have shared many happy and wonderful times over the years, including our weekend visits and camping trips. I will always remember by beloved, wonderful and beautiful friend. I will cherish the memories forever!❤️
I am totally devastated and very sad but the fact that she is not suffering anymore gives me some comfort. Ludy will be greatly missed. May she rest in peace.

Sending my deepest and heartfelt sympathies,

Dearest Aunty Ludy,
I have a lot of fond memories of you in my life. When I was a young boy living in India, you sent me a lot of toys from Canada like He-Man, and toy trucks, amongst others. It always put a big smile on my face. I’m blessed my parents picked you as my Godmother and God chose you as my aunt. I will forever miss you and love you. Rest in Peace Aunty ❤️

Ludy was always such a bubbly, friendly, loving and giving person . She always greeted everyone with that beautiful smile that we will always remember as we cherish memories of her . We recall happy times we shared both in Dar and Canada. She will truly be missed.
Our heartfelt condolences to you ,Jeremy/Sarah, David/Kait, and the rest of the Pinto and De Souza families.

Tony & Cellie Gonsalves

Dearest Angelo & Kamala,

Ludy left us all far too soon. Though she is no longer with us, there is nothing that can take her from your memory and the things you shared with her. Nothing will ever replace the space in your heart that your sister occupied. If you keep that space filled with her memory and your experiences together, she’ll always be there with you.

We have no words that will make you feel any better because we know that this is an incredibly difficult time for you. Plus words don’t do justice to how we feel for you right now, as you bear the burden of the passing of Ludy.

We are thinking of both of you and the family, praying for you, and interceding on your behalf; that the Lord brings all of you strength, peace, and comfort at heart, through these difficult times.

If there is any way we can share this burden with you to help you through, we are available to do so.

Our thoughts and prayers are with both of you and the family as you cope with the loss of Ludy. Please accept our deepest sympathies, and extend our condolences to the rest of the family.

In sorrow,

Tony & Cellie Gonsalves

Dear Raymond (& family):

I could not believe that dear Ludy passed away. I worked with Ludy in Dar and we sat together at the Toronto Reunion. She was a beautiful, perky, lady. Hope you remember me too, Raymond. Such happy memories come to mind. Ludy was too “young” to die. But we all know she is now at peace. God bless you all. Dear Ludy, even though so far away in Richmond, B.C., I feel the loss of you tremendously.
Love you all: Queenie
