Anna was born on December 23, 1931 in Pescara, Italy. She later immigrated to Canada, leaving her native Italy and all her friends and family to embrace her new life. Anna and Luigi were married on March 18, 1957 by proxy and they celebrated their marriage on December 7, 1957. Educated in Fashion Design and Pattern Making, Anna was a seamstress extraordinaire. She was an active member at Mary, Mother of the Redeemer Parish (formerly Our Lady of Grace Italian and English Catholic Church) and the Calgary Italian Club. Anna’s greatest passion was her family. She loved deeply and was especially endeared to children and anything small and vulnerable. In 2007, Anna fulfilled a dream of taking her entire family to her favorite vacation spot in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.
Anna is survived by her two daughters, Marcella and Renata; two grandsons, Dylan and Ivan; sister Lidia; and brothers, Enio and Benito. Anna was predeceased by her husband Luigi Stante; parents Pietro and Caterina; sister Maria; brothers, Francesco and Nicola.
