elevated Dsv7c Obituary
After a long strong battle, Lina passed away peacefully on August 3, 2022 with Eliseo Leo by her side. Born on October 21, 1925, Lena was the eldest child of Giuseppina and Salvatore Marchese who had seven children: Calargero, Lina, Vincenzo, Carmelo, Salvatore, Giuseppe and Marianna. The family lived in Racalmuto Sicily, then in 1960 immigrated to Canada. Lena married Silvio Mitterni in 1967, in Toronto, becoming mother to Leo and building with him an amazing bond that grew stronger even till this day. Lina, you filled a very big void in my life. Today that void is present again, but in time, the life-long memories will flood in to fill that void again. The life lessons, the humor, the perfectionist qualities that you showed in all you did—especially baking and sewing, will stay with us forever. We will always strive to emulate your inquisitive mind—always willing to learn, but also to teach and to retain so much. Thank for the joy, the love, and the wisdom you gave us. You will be sorely missed. Sempre Eliseo.
Lena is survived by her brother Salvatore; brother and sister in law Giuseppe & Rita Marchese; and beloved nieces and nephews. Thank you for all your support Linda, Josie, Mary, Martin, Emilia, Daliah, Caley and many others. A special thank you to the nurses and doctors at Toronto Grace and the SRT PSW’s for their skill and caring especially Celia and Yasmin.
