Obituary of Carmela Cresci

Our hearts are heavy as we announce the passing of Carmela Cresci on January 24, 2019 at the Sault Area Hospital, surrounded by her loving family, at the age of 92. Carmela will be greatly missed by her adoring husband Mario of 55 years, her loving daughter Pierina Cresci, and her precious grandchildren Marco and Alissa Di Flumeri. Daughter of the late Bruno Bernardo and the late Antonia Guercio. Beloved sister of the late Pasquale (late special sister-in-law, Rosaria), the late Maria Roberto (late Angelo), the late Michele (late Francesca), the late Francesco (late Rosaria), Giuseppe (Anna), and Luigi (late Grazia).  Sister-in-law of the late Pierina (late Gennaro De Biase), the late Clara (late Michele Durnez), and the late Giuseppe Crisci (Palma Crisci). Affectionate and loving aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Carmela immigrated to Canada from Italy with the dream of providing a better life for herself along with her loving husband. She brought with her years of traditions in preparing home cooked meals for her loved ones, as well as spending time in her vegetable garden in which she took great pride in. She loved spending time with her family. Carmela was extremely proud of her cherished grandchildren and their accomplishments. She was loved by many family and friends and will be forever missed.

Special thanks to the doctors and nurses at the Sault Area Hospital-ICU, Dr. Berry, Dr. Shafiee and Dr. Jenkins for their immense compassion, respect and care.
