elevated mYH3c Peacefully, at her retirement home on Tuesday, June 29th, 2022 at the age of 92 years. Wanda Mary (Wendy) Azzarello, beloved wife of (late) Santo Azzarello for 48 years and cherished daughter of Kazimierz and Jadwiga Bielecki. Loving mother of John and his wife Anna, Paul and Lee, and Michael and his wife Geraldine. Cherished gramma to Francesca, Anthony and Jacqueline.

Following her return to Canada, she met her “catch”, Santo, married and John, Paul and Michael followed.  In her forties, Wendy joined the Toronto Real Estate Board and successfully practiced real estate sales for 30+ years. Santo’s family, Mom’s loveable, fun Lacewood bridge group, Winnipeg friends, cottage friends, Colonial Retirement Home family, and real estate friends surrounded her life which included a passion for collecting farm antiques near the family cottage.
