Obituary of Maria & Antonio Minervini
Maria Minervini, age 89, and Antonio (Tony) Minervini, age 96, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 2nd, 2020 and Friday, April 3rd, 2020, respectively, at Greater Niagara General Hospital. Maria was born on December 8th, 1930, and Tony on June 26th, 1923, in Gimigliano, Italy. Tony and Maria began their love story in their hometown, where they were wed before immigrating to Canada. On December 2nd, 2019, they celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary.
Tony and Maria are the beloved parents of Dominic Minervini and Ben Minervini (Lori). Grandparents to Jessica Minervini, Deanna Minervini (Aaron Goldstein), Isabella Minervini and Ben-Anthony Minervini, whom they spent the last 30 years spoiling with gifts, advice, and mostly their love. Maria is predeceased by one brother and two sisters and will be greatly missed by her sister Sara Pagliaro (Tony). Tony is predeceased by his two brothers and three sisters. Tony and Maria will not be forgotten by their many nieces and nephews, friends, and members of their community.
Maria was the center of her family. She was best known for her tomato sauce, her cookies, and her perfectly homemade sopressata. Tony was a man of few words. He spoke to others through his garden, his love for music and his acts of service. Tony and Maria thrived on the happiness of others.
In the absence of being together during these trying times, the family wishes for you to call each other—those of you who knew Tony and Maria—and remember them through your stories and memories.

  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Minervini family as you lay your beloved parents to rest. We can’t imagine the feeling of loss that you are all experiencing. We send heartfelt sympathies to all of you. May the many wonderful memories of your Mom and Dad, (Grandmother and Grandfather) and the special people they were, stay with you and provide you with some comfort during this difficult time.

    We feel so bad that we cannot be with you during this time. But please know we are thinking of you, Cathy Chernysh & Roger Kandaharian

  2. I was very saddened today to find out about the passing of Mary and Tony last year. I remember all the good times with Mary when we visited her in Port Colborne or when she visited us in Rochester. Who could forget her fabulous cooking? I will especially never forget the couple of days that I spent in Gimigliano with her as a tour guide to show me where grandma and grandpa lived, and the meal at her sister’s house in Tiriolo. Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord.
