The Amoruso family is deeply saddened to announce the recent passing of Vincenzina Amoruso (nee Viscomi) at the Rocky View General Hospital on Sunday morning, October 22, 2017 at the age of 83 years.

Vincenzina was born in Squillace, Catanzaro, Italy on November 24, 1933. She immigrated to Canada to join her husband Giovanni with their first child Rocco in 1957. Vincenzina enjoyed gardening, cooking, and fishing; but what brought her the most happiness was being a loving wife and devoted mother to her family.

Vincenzina will be deeply missed by her surviving family; her husband Giovanni, and their children Rocco, Susan and Ernie Del Cal, and Gregorio; her sister Ruffelina Viscomi; her sister-in-law Giovanna Viscomi; nephews Greg and Steve Viscomi; grandchildren Kristina, Roxanne, Carla and Dave, Tyson, and Christy; great-grandchildren Brody, Lincoln, Connor, Tannor, Alex, Nataliya, and Vincenzina; as well as many other relatives. She was predeceased by her parents Gregorio and Giuseppina Viscomi; and her younger brother Salvatore Viscomi.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Margaret Nikisz (homecare support), for taking remarkable care and patience, tenderness and understanding with Vincenzina. Also, a thank you to the doctors and staff of unit 74 at the Rocky View General Hospital for their outstanding care and compassion that was shown to Vincenzina and the family.
