IMBROGNO, Velina Gilda (nee Scaglione)

April 1, 1935 – October 12, 2011

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Gilda Imbrogno, beloved wife of Rocco Imbrogno of Calgary, on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at the age of 76 years.

Gilda was born in Pietrafitta, Cosenza, Italy and immigrated to Canada in September, 1957. She was married to Rocco on October 26, 1957. Gilda was an astout business person, operating her own professional janitorial business for over thirty-five years. Gilda loved to be surrounded by her family and friends and will be remembered for her passion of cooking, baking and sharing with family and friends. Gilda’s kindness was immense and all whose lives were touched by her were truly blessed. Her love of flowers was evident by the many baskets of flowers in her garden. She always enjoyed returning to Italy to visit dear friends and family. Gilda lived for her children and grandchildren.

Gilda is survived by her loving husband Rocco, daughter and son-in-law Sara and Louis Rego, son and daughter-in-law Giulio and Nicole Imbrogno, four grandchildren Jaime, Nicholas, Celina and Julia, two brothers, Victor (Virginia) and Peter (Yolande) Scaglione, one sister-in- law Rosetta Imbrogno, one sister Maria Imbrogno, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

    Life is but a stopping place,
    A pause in what’s to be,
    A resting place along the road,
    To sweet eternity.
    We all have different journeys,
    Different paths along the way,
    We all were meant to learn some things,
    But never meant to stay…
    Our destination is a place,
    Far greater than we know.
    For some the journey’s quicker,
    For some the journey’s slow.
    And when the journey finally ends,
    We’ll claim a great reward,
    And find an everlasting peace,
    Together with the lord
    With sincere Sympathy
    The Misuraca Family
