In Memory of Grace

Grace Compagnon Stanley, 2 ½ years old, earned her angel wings on September 6th, 2006 after courageously fighting cancer for over half her life. Grace is the cherished daughter of Ian Stanley and Lesley Compagnon, only grandchild of Hal and Dianna Compagnon as well as June Heaven and Max Stanley. She will be missed by her uncles, Chris and Wayne, as well as her pet cat Griffin and Nana’s pets Willie and Simba. Grace touched the lives of many in her short time with us and although she will be missed physically, her spirit will live in our hearts and the lessons she taught us will guide us until we are joined with her again. Grace’s life will be celebrated at St. Ignatius Loyola Catholic Church, 2300 Burnhamthorpe Road West, in Mississauga on Friday September 8th at 10:30am. The service will be followed by a reception at The Glenerin Inn, located at 1695 The Collegeway, in Mississauga. Thank you to Dr. E. Bouffet, Dr. U. Bartels, Dr. J. Rutka and the army of medical professionals who supported them in their crusade to get Grace well. We were blessed with the guidance of your brilliant minds, compassionate hearts and unwavering determination to fight this unforgiving disease. Lesley, Ian and family would like to thank their friends with special thanks to Dr. C. Newman for the support extended so generously over the last year. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Grace Compagnon Stanley Tribute Fund by contacting The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto or by envelopes that will be available at her reception. This fund has been set up to financially sponsor pediatric brain tumour research at the HSC. If unable to attend the service/reception for Grace please feel free to sign the ‘Book of Condolence’ for the family at or you may e-mail the family at
