Luigia is now reunited in heaven with her devoted husband Luigi, and her adoring sons Federico and Emilio. She is also joined in eternal rest by her parents Valentino and Anna as well as her beautiful sisters Nina (Angelo), Giovanna (Francesco), and Filomena (Vittorio). She will always be in the heart of her grandson Joshua and deeply missed by her loving brothers Rocco (Matilda) and Michele (Rosa) as well as her countless nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Growing up on the farms of Pescosolido, Frosinone, Luigia learned the importance of family, faith and hard-work and she loved God and Mother Mary passionately. She immigrated from Italy to be with her husband in Canada with dreams of a better life. As a proud sewing machine operator and mother in Toronto she continued her incredible work ethic and her appreciation of life would never falter in all her 101 years. She enjoyed cooking, knitting and gardening and found peace and joy with her loving family and through her steadfast faith.
Family and friends will be received at the Demarco Funeral Home “Keele Chapel” 3725 Keele St., Toronto (Between Sheppard Ave. and Finch Ave. 416-636-7027) on Friday September 27, 2019 from 2-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. Her Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday September 28, 2019 at 9:30 a.m. in St. Wilfrid’s Catholic Church, (1675 Finch Ave W.) with entombment to follow at Westminster Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to ShareLife.
Luigia’s firmness and determination of spirit, actions and temperament characterized her entire life and will be passed on as part of her legacy to all future generations. Everyone who has met her has been blessed to have been in company with such a special human being, and we will cherish the memories we have of her until we see her again in heaven.
