RITA PERSICHETTI God called Rita peacefully on November 14, 2012 at the age of 57. She will be sadly missed by her loving husband Carlo. She will be cherished by her dear children Adriana (Enzo Romeo), Steven (Christina) and Tonina. Proud grandmother of Maia, Lucas, Christian and Justin. Rita will always be remembered by her parents Riccardo and Loreta Abballe, her sister Tina and her brother Jerry (Eileen). She is now re-united in Heaven with her loving brother Tony. We lost the most beautiful, warm, caring person in our lives. Rita was the love of Carlo's life, the best friend to Adriana, Steven and Tonina, the Nonna with the biggest and most gentle heart who always put everyone first. She raised her grandchildren and they adore her. She has a heart of gold and Catholic faith in God like no other, part of the Catholic Women's League and teaching youngsters to pray the Rosary. Rita was the neighbourhood Mom to all that knew her. She loved to visit Florida with her husband and watched endless sunrises, while always making sure there was a surprise for the kids to enjoy when she left. She fought so hard and suffered until the end with no complaints and when she was gone, her pain and sorrow left her and brought back the beautiful smile we all knew with a sweet scent of Roses. We know she is in Heaven with God and all our late loved ones. We have a guardian angel to watch over and protect us until we meet again. Rita will be missed and loved forever. She will be held dear in the hearts of her nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and many friends. Visitations will take place at the Vescio Funeral Homes Ltd. (8101 Weston Rd., south of Langstaff Rd., 905-850-3332), on Sunday from 2-4 and 5-9 p.m. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, November 19, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Margaret Mary Roman Catholic Church (8500 Islington Ave., south of Langstaff Rd.). Entombment will follow at Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery (on Hwy. 27, south of Hwy. 7). If so desired, donations in memory of Rita may be made to the St. Margaret Mary Roman Catholic Church.
