Sunday morning, September 18th, 2022, in her 98th year, our Mother left this world peacefully to be reunited with her husband (Elio) and her 2 daughters, Liviana and Flaviana (all predeceased). Loving mother to Paula (Michael) and Marco (Tracey).  Sister of Gabriella and the late Gina.

She will be missed by her eight grandchildren Simona, Sauro (Mara), Christina (Ryan), Christopher (Emma), Jordan (Nicole), Jessica (Peter), Meghan (Jarratt), and Nicholas (Savanha). She also has eleven great grandchildren.

She was born in Mondolfo, Italy and immigrated to Canada to join her husband where she began a new life in 1958. They settled in Copper Cliff where she stayed until 2016. She spent the next few years between Kitchener and Sault Ste Marie with her children. She worked for many years at the Italian club in the kitchen. Cooking was her passion and she spent endless hours preparing homemade pastas, soups and sauces for her children and grandchildren. She always had a pantone ready. She made the best. She loved music and loved to dance and sing. She enjoyed watching her Italian programs.

During the summer she spent many hours gardening and in her later years she enjoyed making hats with the loom for charity.

She was a strong woman until the end.
