It is with profound sadness the family of Rosa Russo announce her passing peacefully with her loved ones by her side.
Rosa left an impression with all who came to know her. She loved to have people gather around her table whether it was in Canada or Italy to share in laughter, stories of days gone by and an abundance of homemade food and wine.
Left to mourn her loss are her beloved husband of 55 years, Angelo; their three children, Gino, Laura and Tina (Renato); and granddaughters, Katia and Angela (Nello). Also mourning her loss are her siblings, in-laws, numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends from Edmonton, Canada and Italy.
Rosa was predeceased by her parents, Sofia and Marco Tambasco (Italy); eldest brother, Giuseppe (Edmonton); and son-in-law, Pietro Sacco (Italy).
