February 24, 1932 – January 26, 2021
With saddened hearts and many tears we announce the passing of Diana Mitri (Tubello)
or “Mama Mitri” to many. Our beloved Mother, Nonna and Bis-Nonna passed away peacefully at Boundary Hospital in Grand Forks, B.C. She was reunited with her husband of 67 years, Guerrino.
Diana was born in San Giorgio della Richenvelda, Italy on February 24, 1932. She married Guerrino Mitri on May 31, 1953 in Trail, B.C. They made a wonderful life together in Canada and were blessed with twin boys.
Diana was a wonderful cook; catering, at Mama Mitri’s and cooking in her own home.
She was devoted to her family and friends and spent countless hours at the Christina Lake Community Hall preparing spaghetti feeds and teaching her talents to others. You could never leave her watch unfed. In summers recently past you could find her on her scooter at the beach basking in the sunshine.
Diana is survived by her children; John (Agnes), Tom (Arlene), her cherished grandchildren; Chris (Cheryl), Pamela (Jarrod), Tegan (Kyle), Tyson, Tess, and her great-grandchildren; Emma, Myles, Jennifer, Harris, Rowan, and Isla. We would like to thank Dr. Lewis and all the staff at the Boundary Hospital for their love, care and kindness.
As an expression of sympathy, donations in Diana’s name may be made to the Christina
Lake Community Hall at P.O. Box 331, Christina Lake, B.C. V0H 1E0.
Grieve not for me
Nor mourn the while,
For happier would I be
To see you smile
Let no tears fall
Since I have passed away,
But miss me
And remember me each day.
Live your lives
As I would want you to,
And treat thy fellow man
As I would do.
And when the time has come
Your lives be through,
I shall be waiting here
For each of you.
