It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Desiree Cindy-Jean Hynes.
Desiree was born to parents Jeff Hynes and Shelly Mallet on Sept. 10, 1996 in Sudbury, ON. Those fortunate enough to have known Desiree will remember her contagious laugh and a beautiful smile. On Dec. 19, Desiree entered heaven the way she lived her life; with unwavering strength and a sense of self that yielded to no one.
Desiree was born in Sudbury on Sept. 10, 1996, and from that day she brought nothing but happiness and sunshine into our lives and that of many others. She attended school both in Fort Frances and Kenora and throughout high school followed her love of animals, volunteering at animal shelters and vet clinics. Following Graduation from Beaver Brae Secondary, Desiree went to work at Kenora Forest Products where she made many close friends, Shauna, Sheri, Russ and Matt.
Desiree's greatest joy was being a Mom to her daughter Hannah who will be our guiding light and a reminder of the love that Desiree brought into this world. At age nine, Desiree was diagnosed with type I diabetes and on Saturday, Nov. 16, Desiree suffered a diabetic emergency having had low blood sugar for a prolonged period in the night. As a result of episode she suffered seizures, and a catastrophic brain injury. On Dec. 10, she was able to return to Kenora to pass peacefully surrounded by her family.
