It is with profound sadness that the family of Vendla Castator announces her peaceful passing surrounded by family on April 16, 2023, in her 95th year. Ven is predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Ray Castator. She will be missed by her children Cathy, Garry (Daisi), and Norm (Wendy). Ven was also the loving and proud grandmother of Justin, Amy, Tara, Alex, Taylor, and Ryan. Her surviving sibling Ann Wood (Wayne), brother-in-law Bill Castator, sister-in-law Carol Aitchison, many nieces, nephews, and family friends will forever remember her as a wonderfully positive influence on their lives. Ven was born on October 30, 1928, to Norman and Mabel Aitchison of Woodbridge, Ontario. Her selfless approach to life started early. After her mother’s passing, she supported her father in caring for her siblings as a young teenager. Ven was known for her work ethic, as well as her nurturing and caring personality. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, who always put the needs of others before her own. Ven enjoyed spending time outdoors, whether it was tending to her gardens, cutting the grass on the lawn tractor, or watching the birds. She had a special fondness for Cardinals, and her backyard was always filled with bird feeders that attracted a variety of winged visitors. She was also a late-blossoming golfer and enjoyed playing many rounds with her sisters and close friends.
In accordance with her wishes, in place of a funeral service, there will be a celebration of life to be arranged at a future date.
