The Guest Book is expired.
Died peacefully in hospital surrounded by family on November 23, 2012 at the age of 92 years. Beloved wife of the late Antonino. Mother of John (Linda), Philip, Gaetana Staniszewski (the late Ted) and Dominic (Peggy). Grandmother of Christina, Cynthia, Natalie, Quentin, Vanessa and Lee. Great grandmother of Eddy, Olivia and Reese. Aunt of Gaetana Micheli (Camillo), John Piazza (Angela) and Philip Taormina (Grace). And survived by many relatives in Italy and the United States and her great friend Tonina Divittorio. Pina came to Canada in 1952 with her two boys John and Philip to join her husband who had arrived in Ottawa in 1951. In 1953 she gave birth to twins Gaetana and Dominic. She was fun-loving, yet formidable mother who instilled a sense of duty in her children and rejoiced in their successes. Nobody could cook like Pina and many of her secret recipes have died with her. She was a recent great grandmother and nothing gave her more joy. Special thanks to caregivers Expectation and Pilar and the staff at Villa Marconi and the Ottawa Civic Hospital who were so compassionate. Also thanks to Fr. Paul. Friends may pay respects at the
