elevated 9WDko 1922 – 2021
elevated 9WDko With a sorrowful, grieving heart we say goodbye and pay tribute to Lucia Colucci, a distinguished individual and family Matriarch. The pillar and rock of her family, she was beloved, cherished and adored. She was praised and admired by everyone for her remarkable longevity, strength of character, great wisdom, feisty courageous spirit and vivid story telling. Born in Sora, Italy to an enormous family of fifteen children, nine brothers and four sisters; a set of twins had sadly died before birth. Lucia was the 12th child and last daughter. She was blessed with good genes to be the last surviving sibling in the very prominent, loving, tightly united, deeply religious Tersigni family. Lucia married Luigi Colucci and they spent 54 loving years together, first in Italy and then building a life with each other in Canada. Lucia was a supportive, respectful and loyal wife.
elevated 9WDko Her intelligence, instinctive nature, strong faith and courageous fighting spirit guided her in life and gave her tremendous strength to overcome all challenges. She was uncompromising in her values and lived a life based on high morals and ethical standards. Her unmatched courage and resilience were her strengths.
elevated 9WDko Lucia was generous and welcoming. She was loving, nurturing, compassionate and a fabulous cook. Everyone, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren, loved Nonnina’s homemade pasta and gnocchi. She had style! She had grace! She was a great lady! She inspired us all and leaves an esteemed legacy of love of God, family, friendship and self. We have been blessed, honoured and privileged to have had her presence and influence in our lives. She lived a long, rich and fulfilling life. She will be profoundly missed, never forgotten and lovingly remembered.

Hi Connie and Vince
Our condolences to you both sorry we lost contact with you and your family
From what I remember she was a lovely lady
My condolences to you all.
I met this wonderfull lady 3 times. 2 times in Canada and one time in Holland ,when you made a Europe tour.
The firts time I met her ,I was about 13 ,14 years old i guess,and after a couple of hours i adored your mother…and father.
Such a warm family,which really felt as our family from Italy.
Loving,carring,funny…they had it all.
While Mr Colucci was showing the wine,your mother was cooking the best pasta ever.
She was a lovely warm person,who will be missed a lot .
Thinking of you all,
Vince & Connie. Our deepest condolences to the both of you.It,s to bad we drifted apart and went on with our separate lives, Your mother & father were very good to the Alati family and will not be forgotten.
So sorry to hear this news. What an amazing strong and resilient woman. She lived a very full life and enjoyed the love and support of her family. My deepest condolences to you, your brother Vince and the rest of the family. May she rest In peace now.
My deepest condolences to you and your families. I was very young when we moved to NY, but I remember when we used to come here my dad (who was Gino’s first cousin) would bring me to visit your mom and dad. May she rest in peace.
You generously welcomed me into your family circle because of my friendship with Vince. You and Luigi accepted me as a person and a friend. It became very natural to call you MOM whenever I saw you. Thank you for your acceptance as only a mother could.
GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR GENEROUS HEART. Be at piece with Luigi. I will see you two some day soon
Dear Connie , Vince and Families, What a lovely tribute to your beloved Mother. I had the pleasure of meeting her when she visited Connie here in St. Catharines and she was just lovely. You were both very dedicated to her and took good care of her especially during the last years of her life and may that bring you some comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Connie i will see you soon. with love Auggie

May you always remember the stories and the good times which you have had with Zia Lucia over the years. And may those bring you comfort at this time.
Rest in Peace Zia.
Bruno and Anna Colucci and Family
Even the fact we met your mother twice in our life, once in Canada, once in Holland was enough to experience what an agreeable and lovely woman she was. Within couple of hours we saw her famous hospitality and believe it or not those short moments were jewels in our minds. As your father. We never forget them. It is the magic of a great personslity and we fully understand how deep it goes missing her. We enjoy your mails Connie in which you shared your sorrows. Keep on the contact, despie the distance we love you and your family very much. Stay strong and keep on loving each other
Our heartfelt condolences to Connie, Vince, Leslie and the entire family. Treasured memories of Zia Lucia will be with us forever. She was such a vibrant part of a childhood spent surrounded by the love of extended family. A woman of great strength and grace, she blessed our lives with her caring and generous heart…part of a great generation of women whose unfailing commitment to family became a symbol for those who followed. May she forever rest in peace.
The entire Colucci family,
We know of Lucia only through her grandson Lee’s heartwarming stories about a remarkable indomitable woman.
May she rest in peace. God bless
Our condolences Connie and family.
Grigory and I sad to hear of your mother passing.
Even we never met your mother, we knew a lot about her ..how did you play cards, celebrate holidays, shopping…You told us about all this.
The little Christmas tree in a pot , that your mom once gave us turns into a small tree and will always remind us of her…
Sentite Condoglianze a tutta la famiglia. Cara Zia ci mancherai sempre come lo è stato sempre Zio . Bei tempi passati insieme qui da noi , Ti ricorderemo sempre nei nostri cuori .-
Always engaging conversation, never a negative word or comment, a stiff upper lip as the British might say, with a keen sense of understanding and acceptance. Ciao Zia.
