Bruna Paiaro, beloved wife of Giovanni Paiaro of Calgary, passed away peacefully on June 2, 2006, surrounded by her family and friends at the age of 78 years.
Bruna was born in Tre Baselige, Treviso, Italy on March 6, 1928. She came to Canada with her family in 1956 at which time she resided in Moose Jaw, SK until 1968 when her family moved to Calgary. She was very proud of her Italian heritage and she worked as a professional seamstress. One of her passions in life was her needlework and crafts.
