September 19, 1925 – December 22, 2018
With immense sorrow we announce the passing of our beloved mom and nana, Rosina. After a two week struggle with complications due to pneumonia, Mom died peacefully and joined our dad, Renzo Faoro, her husband of 73 years, who predeceased her last February. She is also predeceased by her grand-daughter, Leanne Williams, as well as brothers and a sister in Italy. She is survived by her children Mary Kowal (Dan), Alida Mackenzie, Raymond Faoro (Nydia) and grandchildren Jennifer, Alanna (Brent) and Natalie. Rosina with their 2 young children, immigrated to Canada from Ancona, Italy in 1953 to join her husband who had come before her to purchase their 1st home in Vancouver. Known for her generosity & courage, Rosina was a proud, elegant and gracious lady, who always wore a smile with never a complaint. Our thanks to the caring staff at Villa Carital Retirement Home, where mom, along with our dad, spent the last 2 years of her life. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Augustine’s Parish (2028 W. 7th Ave., Vancouver) on Tuesday, January 15th 2019 at 11:00 a.m., followed by entombment at Ocean View Burial Park, South Mausoleum. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Rosina Faoro September 19 1925 December 22 2018..
