MANNELLO, Caterina (nee Iezzi)

0

With broken hearts we said goodbye to our adoring mother and grandmother on Tuesday, February 27, 2018.

She was born September 28, 1924 in Chiaravalle Centrale, Italy. She is now reunited with the love of her life Giovanni who predeceased her last October.

They immigrated to Canada in 1953 and became parents to Mario (Wendy), Joyce Uhl (Robert), Robert (Karen Bourgeois) and Lori.

She was a loving and proud nonna to Rick, Jay (Ashley), Nicholas, Brandon and Jason.

She was the eldest of nine siblings, and is survived by Pino Iezzi and numerous family members in Italy.

In Sault Ste. Marie she was sister of the late Tony Iezzi (Janet), late Anna Marson (Sergio), caring Zia to their children as well as extended family overseas.

Caterina was genuine and kind, loved her company and welcomed everyone to her home. Her signature homemade bread was one of her many gifts as well as sewing and cooking.

We will be forever grateful for the sacrifices she made for us.
