April 16, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Rosa Galetta of Calgary, passed away on April 16, 2018 at the age of 81 years.

Rosa was born in Avellino Italy, where she lived until she immigrated to Canada to live, work, and raise her family. Rosa worked as a housekeeper and aide at the General Hospital in Calgary and eventually retired to help care for her grandchildren. Rosa took pride in caring for her personal garden, where she grew many vegetables that she would cook and preserve for her family. She also loved to bake, crochet, and teach these skills to her grandchildren. Rosa spent much of her life caring for all of her grandchildren when they were young, and this was her pride and joy.

Rosa is survived by her children, Lorenzo Foglia and Claudio Foglia both of Calgary; grandchildren, Ginevra and Steve of Edmonton, Jessica and Jason of Calgary, Julena and John of Vancouver, Stefano and Kendrina of Thunder Bay, and Staecia of Edmonton; great-grandchildren, Adrien, Everett, Eleanor and Lucia; and sister Nicolina Acierno of Calgary.
