BERNARDO, Francesca ‘Franca’


Jan 2nd, 1949 to February 25th, 2016 – It is with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to Franca Bernardo(Giunti).

Wife and soul mate of Frank Bernardo, Cherished mother of Anthony and the late Robert. Precious Nonna of Evangeline. Beloved daughter of the late Antonio and Carmela Giunti. Treasured sister of Jenny Gaudenzi(Daniel), Anne Gencarelli(John). Beloved aunt to Andrea, John and Jessica. Franca will be fondly remembered by her vast extended families in Sault Ste. Marie, Montreal and Edmonton, and dearly missed by her many God children and friends. Say not in grief: “She is no more”, but live in thankfulness that she was.

Friends and family are invited to visit at Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Road 704-945-7758) on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. until time of memorial service in the chapel at 1:00 p.m.

Donations to ARCH Hospice in lieu of flowers would be much appreciated.

We would like to thank, Bayshore Homecare and the staff at Sault Area Hospital for their care and assistance.

O God, support us all the day long,
until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over,
and our work is done.
Then in your mercy grant us a safe lodging,
and a holy rest,
and peace at the last,

Cardinal Newman…
