VALENTINA FUCILE Days before her 92nd birthday, God called another angel to heaven. With loving family to aid her peaceful transition, Valentina Fucile died on Saturday, December 22, 2012 after a long battle with Alzheimer's. Predeceased by her husband Emilio, Valentina leaves behind her loving children Tony (Theresa), Mary (Italo Bruno) and Salvatore (Karen predeceased). She was a second mother to her grandchildren Sabrina (Mike), Shawna (Tony), Remo (Krystle), Kristina (Santo), Adrian and Adam and will be missed by her five great-grandchildren. Valentina was the true matriarch of the family, small in size but feisty and big in heart. Everyone she touched will never forget her laugh, smile, energy, and undying devotion to her children and grandchildren. She will be missed by all. Thank you to the staff at Villa Colombo - 1st floor Fidani wing and Fr. Celestino for the care and compassion given to Valentina over the past 10 years. A special thank you to Valli for her devotion and to Angela for her prayers.
