BORTOLUS, Rina - With her family by her side, Rina Bortolus passed away at Sheridan Villa on August 4, 2014. Born in Fiume Veneto, Italy, on August 23, 1922, Rina arrived in Canada in 1953 via Pier 21, Halifax, heading westward to Natal (Sparwood), BC. Moving back eastward to Toronto in 1955, she settled permanently to raise her family.

She was the beloved Nonna of Angela (Marco), Francesco (Jennifer), Amanda (Conor), Alissa, Celeste and Robert. Her hard-working and generous nature are characteristics that cultivated a deep familial love she will always be remembered for.
