Nicoletta Pasquini, beloved wife of Paolo Pasquini of Calgary, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 3, 2012 at the age of 70 years, after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Nicoletta was born on February 15, 1942 in Lanciano, Chieti, Italy. She was the second of four children and spent her childhood helping her mother and father work their land.

    Our condolences for your loss.

    We live in London Ontario and have a daugther in Calgary AB who sent us the notice. Reading the Obituary, we noticed that Nicoletta was originally from Lanciano. My family was and some still live in Treglio, which is a stone’s throw from Lanciano. The Pasquini name in Treglio has been there for many generations. As our families lived so close to each other, I was wondering if there could be a family connections from years back. My parents immigrated to Canada in 1954, but my grandparents remained in Treglio (now deceased). I also have cousins still living in Treglio. The Pasquini name is quite a familiar name in Italy, but those living in close proximity, raises curiosities.

    Again our condolences.
