Our mother joined our father in Canada with their young son in 1952. Travelling from Italy without knowing anyone along her journey or speaking the language. Through hard work our mother and father built a wonderful life in Canada. Our mother was a wonderful cook and her tie plates were second to none. She was a homemaker her entire life and loved nothing more than to take care of her family. Nothing made her happier than being with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Our mother loved to travel. Her and our father travelled to many destinations bringing back such wonderful stories of their travels.

She will be dearly missed everyday by her family. Ciao Mama, Ti amo tanto.

We would also like to thank Sharon Watt and Donna Leclerc-Gillick who were not just neighbours but very special friends to our mother.
