It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear Mother, Nonna, and Bis-Nonna Bianca Lepore on February 14th, 2013 at the age of 94 with her loving family by her side. Reunited with her loving husband and best friend Giuseppe Lepore who passed away on February 14th, 2010. Giuseppe and Bianca were married for 68 years and both passed away on St. Valentine's Day. True love at it's finest!

Proud Bis-Nonna of 29 great-grandchildren. Predeceased by her parents Pietro and Rosa Panaccione and her in-laws Pasquale and Antonetta Lepore. Bianca was the youngest of 10 children. Also survived by her two sisters in-law; Elena Panaccione of Italy and Rosa Gambardella of Montreal, many nieces, nephews, and cousins in Canada and Italy. Bianca was born on June 10, 1918 in San Clemente di Galluccio, Caserta. She later raised her family in Cassino, Frosinone. In December 1968, Bianca immigrated to Montreal, Quebec and in 1969 settled in Windsor, Ontario. Bianca worked hard each day and in every aspect of her life. Bianca took great pride in raising her family and building a beautiful home filled with love and compassion. She always made family and friends feel welcome in her home. We will fondly remember the way her eyes lit up each time her children, grandchildren and especially her great-grandchildren entered the room. She was always ready to receive them with a big hug and many kisses. Bianca will forever be remembered for her compassionate ways, her deep faith, and her love of family. A special thank you to Dr. Paul Ziter and the nursing staff of 2 North at Malden Park. Your kindness and care during Bianca's final hours will never be forgotten. In kindness, memorial donations made to the Italian Canadian Handicapable Association or a charity of choice would be appreciated as your expression of sympathy.. Visitation will take place at the
