Our beloved mother and nana passed away peacefully at the age of 97. Born in Mangone, Cosenza, Italy, Antonietta was the fourth of five children. Nana was married in 1937 and immigrated to Canada in 1954 to join her husband. She dedicated her life to looking after her family for which we will be forever grateful. Antonietta is survived by her younger sister Emma; son Domenico (Lisa); grandchildren, Tony (Shannon), Nancy (Rod), and Randy (Silvia); and great-grandchildren, Madison, Jack, Brooke, Jennifer, Mackenzie, Emma, Nicolas, and Joseph. She was predeceased by her husband Natale; her parents; and a brother and two sisters.
