FUCIARELLI, Antonia (Ninetta) - With great sadness we announce the passing of Antonia (Ninetta Fuciarelli) on Wednesday February 7, 2018 in her 83rd year.
Beloved wife of the late Igino Fuciarelli. Loving mother of Joe (Laura) and the late Vince (Sandi). Adored Nonna of Sophia, Nicholas, Joey, Adam, and Lucas.
Daughter of the late Giuseppe and Antonia Ippolito. Daughter-in-law of the late Vincenzo and Lucia Fuciarelli.
Sister of the late Maria Farrauto (Lorenzo), Angelo Ippolito (Shirley), and Frank Ippolito (Nikki Ann). Sister-in-law of the late Clerio, the late Organdino, the late Elio, Gabriele (Anna), Antonina Fuciarelli, and Guiliana Corsini (the late Gabriele). She will be missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Nina was a very strong, smart, and independent woman. She was born in Racalmuto, Sicily, moved to Belgium and then to Hamilton. It is here that she met and married Igino and raised their two boys. She retired from the Glendale cotton mill and then looked after her grandchildren.
Nina and Igino travelled to many places during their retirement including Venezuela, Italy, and France. She will be forever remembered for her delicious cookies and her famous bread, including her special Easter bread (palumedri). We will miss her great conversations over coffee.
Rest in peace Nonna Nina, until we meet again.
A special thank you to the staff at Extendacare for taking care of Nina and making her final days comfortable and dignified.
