Dear Luigi, Kim and Family;
I am so deeply sorry to hear of your loss. You are a beautiful and devoted family and my heart goes out to you at this time. Your mom will be missed, but she was so well loved and loved life itself.
All the best,
Zia Ida will be greatly missed by so many. She was an inspiration to me as an aunt, a woman and a fellow mother. She taught me the importance of determination, love, family and faith. I know that she and my Nonno Jack are sitting together catching up while looking down on all of us. Rest in peace Zia I love you and give Nonno a big hug and kiss for me.
Zio Angelo, and Aiello Family:
The family has been blessed to have had such a wonderful Aunt. She has been such an inspiration to us all and will be sadly missed.
To Uncle Angelo and his family. I had the pleasure of being with you for only a few days. I wish I could be there for you to hug you each and every day. Unfortunately there are too many miles between us. Just know that I will miss her deeply. She was a very special aunt in my life. Truly one of a kind. See will be sadly missed, but never forgotten.
May the many years of happy memories easy your pain with the passing of Ida.
Ida Aiello was born in 1940 in Cleto, Italy. Her parents Francesco and Natalina Romano raised her and her four siblings in very harsh times. She endured the hardships of poverty, destruction of war, the immigration to a new country and the separation from her own family.
Ida always believed “a life lived for others is a life with meaning”. In twenty-nine months she gave birth to five children; Gina, Luigi, Rick, Ron and Marcello. To her pride are wonderful caring and fun spirited individuals. Ida was a director; she was the “capitano”. Always organizing events and parties. Even this last New Years Eve celebration at her home, from her bed she was instructing family to chill the champagne, put the champagne glasses on a tray and to cut the panettone. She was also planning for after her death. She wanted to be part of her grandchildren’s first communion. Early December she shopped and bought gowns with Mikaila and Bianca for their ceremony in April. A gift has been prepared for her other grandchildren; Daniel, Chiara and Joleen. As a family we’ve enjoyed her numerous family dinners all beginning with Ida saying “mangiare”and always ending with full tummies and Ida still saying “mangiare”.
Cherished memories of the family usually involved food. One to share is our love of her chicken soup and her “sauce “. Especially her granddaughter, Bianca, who was very concerned that her sauce recipe would go to heaven with her. Her grandchildren will always remember her for her never ending supply of chocolate and treats. The family was also very fortunate to have taken two trips with Ida joined also with Maria and Gino Aiello, and Emma and Saverio Epifano.
She’ll be remembered for her tremendous commitment to her faith, her unending generosity, kindness and open door to her family and friends, and finally her years of battling cancer. She endured surgery and fifty-two chemotherapy treatments, with the knowledge and hope that every treatment may give her a little more time with her family. Her courage is inspiring. Ida participated in the Cancer Society Relay for Life the last three years. She would walk the survivors lap cheered on by her family. In June the family will walk in her honour.
When speaking of her childhood her thoughts were reflected by “one door closes and another one opens”. Times like these open our hearts and let us freely say these things that we wouldn’t normally say, do things we may not normally do. If there was one last direction Ida was to give us, to give all of us, it is to fight for life and to live for family!
Ida was an amazing women and a wonderful mother-in-law.
To Gina & Family,
We are thinking of you at this sad time, & praying you will find comfort in the precious memories you hold in your heart. Ida was very special to us she has touched our lives & will be dearly missed.
My deepest sympathies to Luigi and the rest of the Aiello family. Keep your memories close to your heart.
Luigi, Gina, Rick, Ron, Marcello and Mr. Aiello.
My prayers are with you all at this time. My deepest sympathy. Ida's strength and faith will always be remembered. She taught us all to never give up hope and to believe. May she be with God in a better place.
Dear Gina ,Greg and the Aiello family

Angela, Jim, Melanie and Nicholas Hughes
To Luigi, Kim, Bianca & Chiara:
We were saddened to hear that Ida passed away. As we read the obituaries we saw the two pictures of Ida. One, a beautiful young woman and the other of the proud mother and courageous woman who fought cancer so valiantly for the past six years. We pray for you and your family. A true testamnet of a person's life is the loved ones they leave behind and the values they instill in their children. We think Ida was a very rich woman by these measures.
Our sincere sympathies to the entire Aiello family.
Karen, Arianna & Domenic Amendola
I am so very sorry to hear about Zia Ida's death. She is such a brave and strong woman. I only met her one time in the summer when I was there with my daughter Brianna and my sister Ivana but what an impact she made on us. I will truly miss her. I am so very fortunate for myself and for Brianna that we were able to meet this wonderful woman before she was taken away from her family. She is in my thoughts and prayers as is the rest of the family. My sincere condolences to all the family.

To the Aiello Family,
On behalf of my family, I want to express our deepest condolences during this grievous time over the loss of your family matriarch.
Ida was a friend from my parents home town in Italy and have only heard great things about her. Ida was a brave woman. Just a couple of months ago when we saw her last -she seemed like such a fighter, and so very proud of her family - a great husband, 4 beautiful sons and a very caring and wonderful daughter and finally the grand-children - all were the light of her life.
To the Aiello Family
Our sincere condolences on the loss of your wife and mother. Ida was a wonderful person and a great friend to my mother. Her genuine smile will be missed by all who knew her.
God Bless You all.
Gina(Cesario)and Nabil Gebara
Deepest sympathy to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
