May 28, 1936 – April 3, 2011
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Caterina Ferraro (nee Triveri) on April 3, 2011 at the age of 74 years with her family at her side.
Caterina was born May 28, 1936 in Pietrapennata R.C., Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1959 with her husband and two young sons. She was a great homemaker, enjoyed doing needlepoint, crocheting, cooking, family vacations and spending time with her family and grandchildren.
Her immense will to live superseded the pain and suffering she endured for the past ten years.
