DE ROSA, Antonia
April 15, 1930 – Conversano, Italy
February 23, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta

Antonia De Rosa, of Calgary, passed away on Monday, February 23, 2015 at the age of 84 years.

Antonia was born in Italy and moved to Argentina with her mother in 1951. She met Armando in Argentina and they were married there in 1954. Their three children were born in Argentina and in 1960, the family immigrated to Italy. For a better opportunity, the family immigrated to Canada and to Calgary in 1966. Here, Antonia was employed as a seamstress at Holy Cross Hospital for many years. Antonia will be remembered as a very hospitable person, enjoying the company of family and friends, preparing many meals for them. One of her passions was to speak to people about her faith and commitment to Jehovah.

Antonia is survived by her daughter Josephine De Rosa; two sons Paul De Rosa and Mike De Rosa, two daughters-in-law Norma De Rosa and Rachel De Rosa, four grandchildren Jason, Michelle, Robyn and Michela.

She was predeceased by her husband Armando De Rosa.

    It’s always difficult to loose a parent. The time and years that we’ve had them just never seems to be enough.
    Stay strong, take care of each other, remember all the wonderful things they have taught us and don’t ever forget that although the link may be physically gone, you all now need to help hold it together as a family.
    Our thoughts, strength and love with all of you.
