Anna Margiottiello Gioia

Anna Margiottiello Gioia

August 5, 1933 - May 19, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a beautiful soul Anna Margiottiello Gioia at the age of 86. Remnants of various strokes had taken its toll on our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and wife as she slowly slipped away from us in spirit in her later years. As the world collectively held its breath hoping not to succumb to the Covid-19 virus, it took yet another precious being from us.


Her family was the centre of her world. She immigrated from Italy with little less than the clothes on her back and holding the hands of her tiny children, enduring a long, rough boat ride over to Canada. Barely able to comprehend the language, she worked hard and found employment working fulltime in the garment industry, helping feed and clothe her children.


She will forever be remembered for special family gatherings that revolved around copious amounts food and the joy she found in simple pleasures such as surrounding herself with her growing family, son Carlo (Elide), son Tony (Tanya), daughter Teresa (Luc) and daughter Mary (John) as well as grandchildren/great-grandchildren Christina (Gianni), Nanci, Mike (Diana, Aria), Elissa (David, Sophia), Amanda (Silvio), Ryan and Vanessa.


Due to the current circumstances, a private ceremony for the immediate family will be held. A memorial service in her honour will be held at a later date.


You suffered alone as it was forbidden to be by your bedside, but you were in our hearts and thoughts. You will forever be in our thoughts, prayers and our hearts.  Your spirit and strength will help guide us. Love you to the moon and back.


In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory would be greatly appreciated.
