September 15, 1938 – March 24, 2012
Dolores (Addolorata) Esposito enjoyed life to the very fullest until her death on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at the age of 73. Her heart was always open and her kitchen was never closed. Dolores was a kind woman who always had a big smile on her face and a warm welcome for all.
Dolores was born in Marigliano, Napoli, Italy and moved to Canada in 1966. Dolores’ love was for her family as a wife, mother and nonna (grandmother), and for her many friends. She also loved her work in food services; enjoying many jobs from waitressing to catering. Dolores always enjoyed having family and friends over for a meal or “coffee time”.
Left behind to remember Dolores is her husband of forty-four years, Antonio; her son Joe; daughter Felicia; daughter-in-law Marla; and son-in-law Larry, all of Calgary. She will be deeply missed by her grand “kids”, Lucas, Andrew and Emilia; her extended family and many friends. She is also survived by her brothers, Saverio of Calgary, Antonio of Australia, and Francesco of Italy; and sisters, Maria and Francesca of Italy. She was predeceased by her brother Giuseppe and sister Immacolata in Italy.
The family invites all of Dolores’ friends and family to come and celebrate her life and requests that instead of flowers, a donation be made in her name to St. Luke’s Catholic Church – Building Fund.
You will always be in our hearts – sarai sempre nei nostri cuori
