SCIARRA, Teresa Adriana (Milani) passed away peacefully at Port Colborne Hospital Palliative Care Unit on Saturday, June 19 at the age of 84. Predeceased by her beloved husband, Ruben (2003). Devoted mother of Tony and beloved mother-in-law to Patty. She leaves behind fond memories for her sister Maria Liberatore (Ottawa) and sisters-in-law, Jenny Milani, Rita Ventresca and Grace Chiocchio (Welland). She is also survived by in-laws, Liberato and Michelina Sciarra, Rosaria and Italo Brunetti and many nieces and nephews in Castropignano, Italy and Canada. Teresa was predeceased by per bother, Tony Milani and sister Anna Luciani (Mike). She was born in Carapelle, Italy and moved to Canada with her family in 1951. She met Ruben and they married in 1953. Their lives were filled with family, friends and travel. The whole family near and far will agree that she was one of the best cooks around. Teresa and Ruben were founding members of Club Castropignano where she worked in the kitchen with many family and friends. They spent many years singing with the Gruppo Folk-Molise choir and was often heard carrying a tune around the house. She loved to dance and laugh, and was always excited in anticipation for the next celebration. Teresa will be remembered for her love of life, her kindness, generosity and her support and concern for all who crossed her path. But most of all for her pride in her son, Tony and as she would say, her daughter, Patty. Her smile was infectious and will help keep our wonderful memories alive.

Put simply they were very good, kind hearted people and you as their child are living proof of that. May you take comfort in the many number of years your Mom lived, the precious memories that you shared and the fact that she was a strong presence in your life for a long time.
