Antonetta was born and raised in Castelforte, Italy. She married in 1950 and travelled, with her first born, to start a new life with her husband in Canada in 1953. Antonetta was a very selfless woman, always thinking of family first. Spending quality time with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren brought her great joy. She was happiest when her home was filled with family, and so much love. She also enjoyed sewing, working in her vegetable garden, tending to her beautiful flowers, travelling with the family and cooking. She took great pleasure in chatting endlessly on the phone to family and friends from near and far, as well as visiting with her neighbours for “coffee time”. She will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.
We are forever grateful to her wonderful doctors, Dr. Yoshida, Dr. Ghante and Dr. Lilly, as well as the staff of the various home care service agencies for their care and support.
