Sebastiana is my great-aunt and even though our families didn't keep in touch as much after my mother's death, I do recall visiting with her and Zio Concetto when I was a young child. I vividly remember her being a very happy woman and taking an interest in me and my two sisters. Her bright smile will always shine for her children and loved ones. Condolences to the family.

Besi was a wonderful grandmother to her own and many kids of Coventry Court, and also a wonderful part-time neighbour. Sending love to Joe, Violet and the family. Marney and Jim Robinson

Deacon Joe....Condolences are sent to you and your family from me. I can see the resemblance of you in her. May her soul rest with God. May God give you the strength that you will need to carry on. Celebrate her life...that is what we all need to do.

We will never forget Besi presiding over the family as the adoring mama, grandma, and great-grandma, her face beaming and hands lifted for a hug. Joanne tells us a sweet story that once, when she slipped on the ice, five-year-old Miles assured her that if Nonno were here, “he would carry you!” Aren’t we fortunate to have parents to carry us, in person and in memory, to the end of our own days. Rest in peace, Besi. You touched us all.
Rochelle and Mark
