SECRETO, Orestina

March 16, 1930 – Crotone, Italy
November 5, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Orestina Secreto, at the age of 88 on November 5, 2018.

Mom was born to Carmelo and Palmina Fiorentino on March 16 1930 in Crotone, Italy.

Our mother bravely left her life in Italy and moved to Canada with our father, Francesco Secreto, and their six children: Gino, Leo, Carmen, Maria, Palmina, and Alfonsina. We count our blessings to have had such an amazing, caring, loving, nurturing, and strong mother. There was never a time that she wasn’t there for any one of us. Mom was a very proud grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother and loved each and everyone of them in her own special way.

Mom is survived by her children, Gino (Maria), Leo (Maria), Carmen, Maria (Carmine), Palmina (Bob), and Alfonsina (Jeff).

Mom was predeceased by her loving husband, Francesco Secreto; parents, Carmelo and Palmina Fiorentino; sister, Lina; and brothers, Fortunato and Giuseppe (Angelina).
