ARNOLD, Mary (Pezzani) - Passed away peacefully on September 12, 2021 a few days after celebrating her 96th birthday.
Predeceased by her husband Arthur “Art” in 2011 to whom she was married for 62 years.
Cherished mother and mother-in-law of Ted and Jackie of Etobicoke.
Loving Nonna to Sydney, Madeline and Emily.
Predeceased by her parents Edward and Adelina Pezzani, Mary was the youngest and last of her six siblings in England and Italy (Gina, Erminia, Celeste, Connie and Mario).
Extended family include much loved sister-in-law Rita Pezzani and many nieces and nephews.
Born in London, England, Mary emigrated to Canada in 1947 and had a 40+ career with the Royal Bank.
A great wife, mother, sister and Nonna, Mary had many hobbies and interests. Cooking was one of her passions, whether it be traditional English roasts (she made a terrific Yorkshire pudding) or Italian fare (risotto Milanese, veal parmigiana and brodo were her specialties).
As there will be no visitation, please drink a toast to Mary and Art, and if desired, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
