elevated D5444 On Tuesday, May 14th, in her 93rd year, our mother, Maria left us for her eternal home where she joins our father, her beloved husband Luigi, who passed away in 1994.  Maria was a Christian woman of extraordinary strength, faithfulness and total commitment to her family. Maria Cappuccitti, née Lucci, is survived by a large adoring family: Her esteemed children, Rita and husband Sante Zanatta, Michele and wife Christine (Piotrowski), Rocco and his wife Loretta (De Biasio), all of whom she considered her own; Her adored grandchildren, John Zanatta and wife Sandy Bellinaso, David Zanatta and wife Sandy (Novielli), Christina (Zanatta) and husband Sergio Privato, Adam Zanatta and wife Francesca (Di Marco), Claudia Cappuccitti, Daniel Cappuccitti and wife Amanda Lo Cicero, Sandy (Cappuccitti) and husband Andrew Baker, Carina Cappuccitti, Jillian (Cappuccitti) and husband Alexander Bruni, Sarah Cappuccitti;

She leaves her dear sister and best friend Giuseppina Ascione (Lucci), her dear sister-in-law Francesca Baldesarra (Cappuccitti), her dear sisters and brothers-in law in Italy, Marta Cappuccitti (Lucci), Anna Cappuccitti (Guida), Lucia Cappuccitti and husband Franco Corsetti, Donatella Rossi (Cappuccitti), and Giuseppina Cappuccitti (La Rocca).Maria leaves a huge number of nephews and nieces, and great nephews and nieces in Canada, Italy and United States, as well as a multitude of extended family and friends.

Years ago, Maria left her family a letter to be opened on her passing.  In it she gave her blessings for present and future generations reaffirming her faith in God and love for them.  Isn’t it just like a mother to tend to the comfort her family in their times of grief regardless of personal circumstances?  Her family is blessed and privileged with a mother graced by God.  The family gratefully acknowledges the wonderful care given to Maria in her last five months at Mackenzie Health, Baycrest Rehab Hospital, Runnymede Rehab and St. Joseph’s Health Centre and by her caregivers Josephine, Richelle and Justine.   In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to St. Joseph’s Hospital, Heart and Stroke, The Alzheimer’s Society or a charity of your choice.
