On Tuesday September 7th, 2021 half of my heart was called to God. At 2:35 p.m. my mother took her last breath as I held her hand, just as she was there for my first breath, I was there for her last. Beloved wife of the late Valentino – 2004. Loving and devoted mother to Elizabeth. Dear sister of Michele, Pina, Enrica and Donatella. She leaves behind many nieces and nephews in Italy and in Canada. She will be greatly missed by her feathered child Dean and by her fur grand child Taquita . Predeceased her mother Erminia Ruiz, father Fillipo Neri, step-father Gaetano Stassi, and by her sister Lia.
