Anne Marie D'Amico "went the extra mile for others"
Colleagues, friends and family of an Invesco Canada employee who died in the Toronto van attack have spoken of their shock and sadness.
Anne-Marie D’Amico was the first publicly-named victim of the attack which killed 10 people and wounded 14 Monday.
Her family issued a statement expressing their great sadness and saying that she had a “generous heart.”
"She wouldn't stop until she went the extra mile for others.… She genuinely wanted to care for all those around her even if it meant sacrificing a portion of herself in return for others' happiness. She only had kindness in her,” they said.
Anne Marie worked in the Invesco Canada building on Yonge Street, Toronto and in an interview with CBC News colleague John Tam said she was “a very warm, friendly presence in the office. Always smiling."
Invesco Canada’s president Peter Intraligi confirmed her death to CBC News but said that no further comment would be made out of respect for her and her family.
Anne Marie was a tireless volunteer for several organizations including Tennis Canada.
