elevated 4V81d Vercillo, Constantina Maria

elevated 4V81d Commonly referred to her friends as Connie and to her family as Mary passed away peacefully at the age of 71 on Monday December 4, 2023, at 11:30 p.m. at Princes Margaret Hospital Palliative care unit on the 16th floor with her loving husband and brother at her bedside. Devoted and loving daughter to her predeceased parents, Giovanni and Genoveffa Gazzaruso. Beloved wife to Tony for over 51 years. Loving and nurturing mother to Joey (Imogen) and Rob (Megan) and families. She was a proud and caring grandmother to her young grandchild Violet whom she cherished and had sleepovers with and did lots of fun things with despite her challenging hard-fought battle with cancer for the last 5 years. Dear sister to Tony Gazzaruso (Josie) who was involved in her journey right from the very beginning and to the very last second.   Loved sister-in-law of  Joe (Janet) Vercillo and proud and cherished aunt to many nephews and nieces. Being a loving and caring person in her banking career both in Toronto and Port Elgin afforded her the opportunity, privilege, and joy to gain so many caring lifelong friends.

elevated 4V81d Special thanks to the nurses and doctors at Princess Margaret hospital throughout her five-year prolonged battle with cancer. Heartfelt thanks to the many families and friends who visited her in palliative care from 17 Nov to 4 Dec 2023 bringing their most appreciated prayers and time spent visiting. She was no doubt aware although she may not have been able to express her love back.
