She leaves behind to cherish her memory two sisters Adriana Finateri (late Duilio) and Mirella Finateri (Guido). Daughter-in-law of the late Giuseppe and the late Perlina Rinaldi.

She will be missed by her many nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.


In 1967 with her husband and children, Luigina immigrated to Canada. She was very proud of her Italian heritage and was an amazing cook and baker. She loved sharing her homemade meals and baked goods with family, friends and neighbours. Luigina was a kind, loving, compassionate, giving and caring woman who always put others first. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
