With broken hearts we announce the peaceful passing of our wife, mother and nonna on April 27, 2014 at 71 years of age. Beloved wife of Giuseppe. Precious mother of Teresa & Don Tersigni, Janie & Steven Valente, and Susie & Joe Musso. Bella nonna of Daniela, Marina and Massimo Valente; and Giuliana and Matteo Musso. Predeceased by her parents Nicola and Assunta Pallone. She will be sadly missed by many family members in Italy. Sara’s beautiful smile was made even brighter when surrounded by her grandchildren who were her world. She will be remembered for her home cooked meals, especially her pasta, her garden, her baking, her canning, her homemade sausages, and her favourite pastime: mushroom picking. Her heartfelt kindness and endless generosity welcomed all with open arms. Sara was grateful to be surrounded by so many loving friends. A special thank you to Dr. Tarbain, and Dr. Day and staff for their care. To the Cardella family for their endless generosity of Tim Horton’s during our time at Hospice. To the wonderful staff and volunteers at the Hospice of Windsor – Residential Homes, you are all angels: Lisa, Justina, Michelle, Jessica, Megan, Melissa, Tim, Lorna, Carol, Carrie and her special angel Christine. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you for taking such great care of our treasured mom.
