elevated WdpR7 Obituary
elevated WdpR7 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful wife and mother, Concetta Ferrone (nee Di Zio). Beloved wife of Ernino for 65 years, and cherished mother to Joey (Gilda) and Donna (Mario/Mauro). She was a loving grandmother, Nonna Connie to Christina (Andrew), Andrew, David, Monica (Jeff), and Lorraine; and great-grandmother to Alex, Lauren, Anthony and Baby Barbieri (arriving in coming weeks). Concetta had eight brothers and sisters (Maria, Donato, Ettore, Rocco, Angiolina, Umberto, Giuseppina, Pasqualina) and she is survived by her sister Pasqualina in Italy.
elevated WdpR7 Concetta will be missed by family and friends. Zia Concettina was a favourite to her nieces and nephews for her affection, kindness, and happy outlook. She was always ready for a game of cards with her friends or a chat on the telephone. Concetta was an amicable person who always strived for harmony among people. God welcomes her into heaven and she is reunited with her parents, siblings and grandson Drew.
elevated WdpR7 Forever remembered in our hearts for her joy of life, her strong and deep love for her family, and her creativity in all she did. She was a skilled seamstress and along with her sister, Angiolina, they made many brides happy sewing them exquisite bridal gowns. People often told us how classy and charming she was. Her happiest times were surrounded by the whole family at the dinner table eating the delicious food she prepared for them with skill and pride. Concetta often said to Ernino, “Look at the beautiful family we created”. They shared a true love for each other all their married life.
