A very special lady has bid us farewell.
A woman of conviction and strong principles,
she has always put family first.
Her life was one of generosity, hospitality and true friendship... It is with great sorrow we announce the peaceful passing of our cherished mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Rosina Petrarca wife of the late Nicola Di Palma on November 10, 2012 at the age of 98 years and 8 months. Predeceased by her children Antonio, Lucia and Maria (the late Agostino Di Rienzo), her brother Primiano (the late Maria Giorgetti). She leaves to mourn her sisters in Italy Suora Michelina, Madra Superiore Elvira and Annina, her devoted children Michele (Gislene), Anna and Teresa (the late Nino Melchior). She will be dearly missed by her treasured grandchildren Joe (Gina), Nicky (Linda), Tony (Johanne), Maurice, Giuseppe, Nick (Tania), Maria, Nathalie, Marco, Edison, Sandra (Luigi) and Marisa, her much adored great- grandchildren Tino, Massimo, Amanda, Kevin, Maria-Louisa, Anita and Matteo, her precious great-great-granddaughter Yaneli, as well as many relatives and friends.
