Anna Fronzi

Obituary of Anna Fronzi

Peacefully passed away with her loving family by her side at the F.J. Davey Home on Monday, October 23, 2023 at the age of 89. Reunited with her beloved husband Gianni. Cherished mother of Manuela Schell (Bob), Rita Taraborrelli (late Ed) and Cathy Paciocco (John Paul). Proud Nonna of the late Timothy Schell, Krystle Plastino (Michael), Michael Taraborrelli (Amanda), Stefan Paciocco and Paul Paciocco (Catrina).  Bisnonna of Jimmy and Lorelai Schell, Mikey, Frankie and Gordie Plastino and Luca Taraborrelli.  Loving sister of Giuliano Diamantini (Fortunata). Sister-in-law of Benito Fronzi (Tita) and Franco Fronzi (Elda).   Aunt of Melisa and the late Marlene Diamantini.


Born in Fano, Italy, Anna immigrated to Canada with her husband Gianni as a young married couple in search of a better life for their children.  Anna was a self-employed expert seamstress who took joy in making beautiful clothing for her daughters and doing alterations for the whole family.  Anna had an impeccable sense of style and grace. She would light up the room with her laughter and loved dancing the night away with her husband.  Blessed with good health until the end. A life well lived.
