elevated fqPnl Obituary
With great sadness, we announce that our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Elena, passed peacefully into the arms of the Lord, in the presence of her loved ones, on January 19, 2023.  She will now be reunited with her loving and devoted husband, Franco, with whom she was married for almost 72 years, as well her parents, Cesidio and Teresa, her son-in-law, Giovanni Rasetta, and her siblings, Angelo, Arnaldo, Gina and Emma.

elevated fqPnl Elena was an adored mother to Maria Teresa (Giovanni), Vera (Giovanni), Gino (Tina) and Nino (Libby).  She was cherished by her grandchildren, Rossana (Sam), Gianni (Giulia), Anthony (Angela), Dina (Ricardo), Michael (Gloria), Paul (Julie), Mark (Stefanie), Laina (Javier), and Frank (Angela).  She was a loving Bisnonna to Vanessa, Alessia, Giovanni, Gabriella, Giulian, Ricardo, Daniel, Andres, Sienna, Natalie, Jeremy, Leo and Gia.  

elevated fqPnl A strong, hard-working woman, Elena’s sole focus in life was her family.  Her greatest joy was seeing everyone together enjoying her delicious gnocchi or ravioli.  She loved to preserve food from her garden, grow beautiful flowers in interesting pots, knit gorgeous sweaters, hats, blankets and scarves, and watch her beloved Toronto Maple Leafs.

elevated fqPnl Elena will be greatly missed by her surviving siblings, Carmela and Irene, her sisters-in-law, Assunta, Eva and Antonietta, and her many nieces, nephews and friends.
