Angela passed away peacefully at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital on July 23, 2015, at the age of 97. She was born in Corigliano Calabro, Italy, on February 28, 1918.
She immigrated to Canada in 1965 and settled in Annable where she lived for 50 years. “Nonna” enjoyed knitting, gardening, cooking, and spending time with her family.
She is survived by her son, Mario (Marisa), and daughters, Teresa (Ken) and Ines. She has nine grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild who will remember her with much love.
She was predeceased by her parents, three brothers, and two sisters in Italy.
Nonna will live on in our hearts as a strong lady with a sharp mind and big presence. She was always the first to call loved ones on special occasions and enjoyed having visitors at her home for coffee. Nonna taught us to appreciate the simple things in life. She derived great joy in giving to others, and will be fondly remembered for her generosity and welcoming spirit.
Nonna, riposa in pace. Noi ti amiamo.
The family would like to thank Nonna’s home support team, the third floor nurses and staff at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, Dr. Tucker, Dr. Sibbald, the Hospice ladies, and Father Bart for their kindness and loving care. The service for Angela will be held on Friday, July 31st at 10:30 am at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church.
