Iolanda Lombardo of Calgary passed away on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at the age of 81 years.

She loved to garden, make her own tomato sauce and cook up a fantastic lasagne for a beloved Sunday family dinner. Her biggest passion were her grandchildren. They always made her smile. You will be missed Nonna!
