It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Samia Safar Tappuni.  Throughout her life, mother was remarkable in her presence, not only within her close family but also among her larger family and friends.

With the experience of a life that spanned a full century, she imparted her wisdom, compassion and knowledge to all of those that were lucky enough to connect with her.

Samia was the wife of Raphael Tappuni (RIP) and a devoted mother to five children; Faiz, Kais, Riadh, Wassim (RIP), and Anwar. She was a loving Nana to her eleven grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren. The whole family will miss her immensely.

The Funeral will be on Friday 30th December at 9.00 am St Joseph Catholic Church, 1 Orchard Road. BR1 2PR to be followed by private burial at Hill View Cemetery.

A service and celebration of life will be held on Sunday 15th January at 1.30pm Holy Trinity Catholic Church 41 Brook Gardens, London W6 7BL. After service the family will receive condolences in church hall. All are Welcome.
