Concetta’s passion was cooking. Family gatherings brought her the most joy. Concetta gave selflessly. Her children were her greatest pride and joy. Mom you will be deeply missed, but forever loved.
As per Concetta’s wishes a private family funeral mass was held. Arrangements entrusted to Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Road, 705-945-7758). Memorial donations made to The Hospital for Sick Children (Sick Kids) would be appreciated by the family.
Concetta’s family wishes to express sincere gratitude to the Extendicare Van Daele staff (especially Marcie, Kelly, Donna and Kimberly) for all the wonderful care given to Concetta.
