Rosaria will be missed by her many nieces, nephews and extended family.

Rosaria lived a humble life of hope, strength and grace and made our lives a brighter, better place. Her family was her life, and she treasured her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and embraced every moment with them. Even as her health was declining, children brought a smile to her face. Our mother was generous and hardworking as well as an amazing cook and it gave her great joy to share her food with family, friends and neighbours. No one left hungry or empty-handed when they left the Bruni house.

Mom was happiest when we were all together and her greatest wish was for her children to remain close. Mom we will honour your wishes. Not time, not space, not even death will separate us. Rest easy Mom, we know that you and Dad are watching over us. We will always be humbled and honoured to have had such amazing parents.

Friends and family are invited to visit at Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Road, 705-945-7758) on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. until time of service in the chapel at 2:00 p.m. with Father Trevor Scarfone officiating. Entombment to follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery Mausoleum.

Memorial donations to ARCH or the SAH Pediatric Unit would be appreciated by the family.

Thank you to the staff at the F.J. Davey Home, Birch 2 for the care and compassion shown to Rosaria and our family over the years. Special thanks to friends and family who supported and visited Mom through the years. We will be forever grateful for your kindness and love.


  1. My deepest sympathies to a large and loving family. I have very fond memories of growing up on Charles Street and experiencing your mother’s generosity and kindness first hand. She was a great friend to my mother and she will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with you,

    Tony Coccimiglio and family
