She was born on December 1, 1934 in San Nicola,Da Crisi, Italy to parents Vincenzo and Domenica Marchese. She immigrated to Canada where she met and married her husband, Antonio Loschiavo. She was blessed with two daughters, Mariella and Domenica and two grandsons, Michael and David.  The love of family was central to Giovanna’s life and she was the cornerstone of her home. She was a sister to Nunziata, Angela, Nick, Tom and Vito. Giovanna lived to nourish and enrich friends and family and will long be remembered for her ability to bring those close to her together through her gift of food.  Giovanna lived an intensely passionate life. She enjoyed travel, often taking trips with friends and family to Italy, Europe, Mexico and Las Vegas. At home, she enjoyed spending time with her grandsons, caring and nurturing for them like a second mother.  In her last years, Giovanna enjoyed making new friends and living as part of a community at the Villa Da Vinci Retirement Residence in Woodbridge.  Giovanna is survived by Antonio (husband), Mariella and Domenica (daughters), Danny (loving son-in-law), Michael and David (grandsons), and brothers Tom and Vito. She was the light of her family’s lives and will live on in their memories and prayers. Family, friends and others whose lives Giovanna touched are invited to the HOLY CROSS CATHOLIC FUNERAL HOME, 211 Langstaff Rd.
