Maria Pozzi beloved wife of Angelo Pozzi of Calgary passed away suddenly, on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at the age of 78 years.
Maria bravely left her home land on her own to join her brothers in Canada in 1954. Settling in Calgary, Maria worked for Rosedale Cleaners before meeting her beloved husband Angelo of 58 years.
