December 28, 1933 – December 20, 2019
It is with heavy hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Luigina on December 20, 2019 at the age of 85 years.
Luigina was born in Amato, Italy (second oldest of 5 children) immigrating to Canada in 1961.
In April 1963, she married Domenico and they raised their two children in Transcona.
She was predeceased by her husband Domenico (2002), brother Amadeo, sisters Lina and Giuseppina.
She leaves to mourn her memory, daughter Anna (Mike), son Antonio (Indira), grandchildren Adam (Janelle), Jordan (Catherine), great grandchildren Maxime and Rosalie, brother Achille (Rafaela), as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
Luigina maintained her independence and still lived in her own home. She had a passion for cooking, especially the traditional Calabrese dishes which we always looked forward to. Her other special talent was gardening. Her vegetable garden and flowers were a thing of beauty, always sharing her bounty with family and friends.
The family would like to thank the home care providers for their professionalism and care shown to Luigina, and especially for their compassion when she passed.
Friends and relatives are encouraged share memories, stories, and/or condolences for the family by using the comment section on this page.
In accordance with Luigina’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held. A private family internment will take place in the Spring.
In lieu of flowers and in Luigina’s memory, a donation may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba or a charity of your choice.
Riposa in pace Mamma e Nonna.
