web_nawalany_teresaGently walked into spirit on January 30, 2013, at the age of 93, surrounded by her loving family. She was lovingly welcomed by Adolf (2007), her beloved husband of 58 years.  Teresa was born on December 20, 1919 in Vittorio Veneto, Treviso, Italy. Cherished mother of Rita Nawalany, and Paul & his wife Rosemary Nawalany. Loving nonna of Korie and Kamie David; Jeffrey & wife Silvana Nawalany and Stefanie Nawalany. Proud bis-nonna of Angelina, Natalina and Valentina. Predeceased by her parents Piero & Madalena Mazzer and her siblings Bertolin, Maria, Mimi, Giusto, Gina, Piera, Antonio and Arturo.  Dear sister-in-law of Angelica Mazzer.  She will be sadly missed by many family members and friends in Italy and Canada.  Her greatest love in life was caring for her family of whom she was most proud. Teresa was instrumental in helping many immigrant Italian families familiarize themselves with their new homeland, sharing her wisdom and kindness to all that knew her.  She worked at the University of Windsor in housekeeping for many years where she cultivated meaningful relationships with the professors and staff.  Teresa was a member of the Italian Women`s Club G. Caboto Auxiliary.  A special thanks to the staff of Huron Lodge, especially the Hickory wing on the 3rd floor for their devoted care and attention. If you so desire, donations to the Italian-Canadian Handicapable Society would be appreciated by the family.
