IANNELLO, Luigia 'Luisa' - (October 6, 1937 - August 20, 2019) - Luigia Mancuso was born on October 6, 1937 in Delia, Caltanisetta, Sicily, Italy.
In 1960 she immigrated to Toronto Canada after being married by proxy to her dear husband Calogero Iannello. Together they raised three beautiful children in Barrie: Maria, Anna and Shirley and ran successful businesses.
Luisa adored her grandchildren Samuel Sarah and Andrea Baiardo. She loved her family and friends, always with a smile and laughing especially when telling Sicilian jokes and barzaletti. She was a great cook, Gardner, seamstress and loved Italian/Sicilian music and playing tombola bingo with her friends in Woodbridge. She especially loved attending Sicilia Canta celebration and her son-law’s music. We will always remember her smile and the wonderful memories she shared with us.
Luisa was a devout Catholic and was welcomed into God’s arms on Tuesday August 20, 2019 at the age of 81.
Special thanks to Fr. Mark Gatto and Fr. Francesco Cucchi for taking the time to be with her.
She will be reunited in Heaven with her loving husband of over 50 years, Calogero. Cherished by her dear children, Maria (Joseph Baiardo), Anna and Shirley. Proud Nonna to Samuel, Sarah and Andrea.
