January 15, 1926 - November 5, 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother Dolores. She was born in Civitannova del Sannio, Italy on January 15, 1926 and passed away peacefully at Villa Carital Care Home on November 5, 2017. Predeceased by her husband Antonio (May 15, 2015) and survived by her daughters Maria Zonta, Betty Sacco (Jezz); grandchildren Gabriella, Fabio, Jessica (Paolo), Katrina (Nick); great-grandchildren Sevannah and Alessandro. Dolores was a devoted wife and very loyal to her family and many friends. A very strong and hardworking woman who drew passion from her talents in sewing, knitting, gardening, music and writing. Her last accomplishment was the book she wrote about her amazing life, the daughter of Filomena and Michelangelo Di Ciurcio and her 11 siblings, Dolores being the youngest and most ambitious. We are very fortunate to have so many wonderful memories of her. Visitation will be held on Friday, November 10th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm at Bell & Burnaby Funeral Chapel, 4276 Hastings Street, Burnaby. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, November 11th at 10:00 am at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 555 Slocan Street, Vancouver. Entombment to follow at the South Mausoleum, Ocean View Burial Park, 4000 Imperial Street, Burnaby. A heartfelt thank you to all the amazing caregivers at V i l l a C a r i t a l , their compassion and genuine kindness was much appreciated. Also, thanks to Dr. Rossali Pilapil-Lee and to her special niece, Rosina, for all their loving care. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to Villa Carital.
