Obituary of Rosalia Baggio

Passed away peacefully at Rapelje Lodge with her daughters by her side on December 18, 2021 in her 97th year. Beloved wife of the late Mario – 1991. Loving mother of Stella Parisien (Ron), Marie Baggio and dear nonna of Ryan Parisien. She is survived by her brother Decimo Martinello (Louise), her sister Perina Martinello, and is predeceased by her two sisters Anna Padovan and Regina Martinello, and her four brothers, Giovanni, Vigilio, Luigi, and Pietro Martinello. Mom was born in Loria, Treviso, Italy on April 23, 1925. She immigrated to Canada in 1958 and married dad that same year. A long time member of the Italian Hall in Port Colborne, she enjoyed playing bocce on the ladies team. For over ten years, mom canvassed door-to-door for the Canadian Cancer Society with her good friend Mary Falcioni. She had a flair for cooking and sewing and she enjoyed tending to her flower and vegetable garden. Mom had a great sense of humor as we would have pillow fights and soak each other with the garden hose. Our heartfelt thank you to all the angels that work at Rapelje Lodge, who cared for our mom for the past six and a half years. A special thank you to Karen Banner, who for over six years would visit mom to engage in conversation and activities.
