It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edda Critelli, surrounded by the love of her husband, children and grandchildren on March 12, 2022 in her 75th year. Beloved wife of Ascenzo Mascitelli. Loving mother of Connie Shepherd (Stephen Hoo) and Reg Shepherd (Tracy). Caring Nonna of Ethan, Dylan, Kennedy, Kole, Mason and Madison. Survived by her brother Ross (Mary) and by her sister in-law Lina. Predeceased by her parents Antonio and Concettina and by her brother Nick. Edda was a strong woman who overcame every challenge that came her way with determination. Her independence and will power will always be a model for all of us. Our mom loved her family more than anything and always put us first. We are privileged to call her mom and Nonna. Mom, we love you so much.
