elevated Tsaso November 14, 1930 – December 23, 2021 

elevated Tsaso On December 23rd at age 91, Emma passed away in her home after a long illness. Beloved wife of Mario Vettese (d. 2014), dedicated mother of Aldo, Fred (Michelle), Tony (Nancy), Sandra (Jeff) and Patricia (Martin), and doting grandmother of nine, family was the central theme in her life. Born in Cassino, Italy, Emma was one of five daughters of Raffaele and Antonietta. Emma came to Canada in July 1952 to join Mario in Toronto where they raised their family and helped many other families from Cassino emigrate. Special thanks to Alicia and Kenneth for their help in caring for her in the last few difficult years of her life.
