SOLDA, Emma Rosa

September 10, 1923 –June 5, 2012

Emma Solda, beloved wife of Paolo of Calgary, passed away on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at the age of 88 years.

She was a woman ahead of her time in thinking and she was an inspiration to anyone who met her. Emma had a great sense of humour and instilled a sense of family pride and values. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her especially her grandchildren.

She joined her husband in Canada, in July 1958 to begin a new life. Despite the hardships and language barrier, she never gave up the fortitude and determination for their dream. As a result she was blessed with the reward of a large and loving family, and many friends.

 Emma is survived by her husband of sixty-five years Paolo; her children, Wanda (Tony) Sanguin, Claude (Deborah) Solda and Robert (Nancy) Solda; seven grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren. She is also survived by one sister Andreina Fasolin of Italy.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Grace Italian and English Catholic Church (1714 – 14th Avenue N.E.) on Friday, June 8, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

  5. Dear Paolo and family:

    Our sincerest condolences from Joe and I. I will always remember the fun times we had when our families got together. Emma always had a smile on her face. She would always ask what was going on in my life and would geniuely care about what I was telling her. When Joe and I married and started our family, she would always ask about our children and love to see them at my mother’s house.

    She was a very beautiful woman with an even more beautiful heart.

    Our thoughts will be with you tomorrow as you say your final goodbyes.

    Joe and Maria Wood (Bacchiega)
