FERRITTO, Dina - (1947 - 2018) - With heavy hearts, we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Dina on March 11, 2018, surrounded by her loving family.
Dina will be forever missed by Fernando, her husband of 49 years, her children Floriana (Sheldon), Nina (Emidio), Renato (Brenda), Franco and her grandchildren Celina, Alexander, Mikayla, Raquel, Lucas, Leo, Kristen, Xavier and Sebastian, to whom she was a cherished Nonna.
Dina was predeceased by her parents Luigi and Assunta and her brothers Alfonzo and Vincenzo.
She is survived by her sister Silvana (late Giuseppe), and sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law Filomena, Romanina (late Antonio), Orazio (late Amelia), Matilda (Silvio), Lina (late Gabriele), Tony (Josie) and Anna (Nick), as well as many nieces and nephews in Canada, Italy and the U.S.
As a young woman, Dina came to Canada on her own to start a new life. Her role of wife, mother and grandmother was the most important thing to her. This is where she drew her strength and left her legacy. So warm and loving, she was happiest when surrounded by her children and grandchildren, sharing her amazing cooking, beautiful smile and encouraging words. She left us the best example to follow.
