Pasqualina De Rose of Calgary passed away on Tuesday, February 10, 2009, after a courageous but short battle with leukemia, at the age of 88 years.
Pasqualina was born on June 29, 1920 in Sartano, Cosenza, Italy. She married Carmine De Rose July 6, 1941 and they immigrated to Canada with their children on April 25, 1960. Pasqualina was a very friendly and hard working woman. Her favourite pastime was to make delicious meals and spending time with her family. She always worried about everybody’s well being and safety. As we say goodbye to you today.
“Remember that when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think that we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart”.
Pasqualina leaves behind her son and daughter-in-law Armando and Tiziana De Rose; daughter and son-in-law Ida and Tony Calabrese; six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She is also survived by three brothers and two sisters of Calgary, Toronto and Sartano.
