Anna was born in Valdagno, Italy & immigrated to Canada in 1957 to join her fiancé Domenico to start a new life together. They were married at the Notre Dame Roman Catholic Parish on December 28, 1957.
She was a loving and devoted wife, mother & grandmother who enjoyed gardening, baking bread, & knitting lovely sweaters & slippers. Family meant everything to her and she showed us in so many ways. We will miss her dearly. Rest in peace mama, you will be in our hearts forever. Per Sempre nei nostri quori.
