Mrs. Carmela DeCicco passed away on July 14, 2012 two days before her 90th birthday, surrounded by her family. Carmela was born on July 16, 1922 in Sannicandro, Di Bari, Italy.
In December 1959, Carmela travelled from Italy with her five children to join her husband in Canada. Carmela devoted her life to caring for her children and then her grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking, baking and being surrounded by her family. Her house was always the hub of the family gatherings and Carmela always had a smile on her face when her family was there, especially when her grandchildren and great grandchildren walked in the door.
She will be dearly missed by her sons, John (Darlene) and Nick (Linda), her daughters Dora (Ralph) Sherbo and Mary (August) Scerbo; her grandchildren Debbie (Trevor) Bonderud, Lorenzo (Michelle), Lisa (Scott) Galloway, Mike (Deanna), Jason Scerbo, Tom (Hannah) Sherbo, Carmela, Anthony, Olivia and Rebecca and fourteen great grandchildren. She also leaves her four sisters Serafina, Giuseppina, Giovanna and Laura and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her husband of 65 years Lorenzo and her son Domenico.
Prayers will be recited on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. The Reverend Father Peter Nguyen will celebrate the Funeral Mass on Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. in the church.
Entombment will follow at Sage Valley Mausoleum.
The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the management and staff of Ridgeview Lodge, Dr. Mavis Hollman and Kamloops Hospice Home for their outstanding care.
Should friends desire, donations to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Crescent S., Kamloops, B.C., V2E 2S9 in memory of Mrs. DeCicco would be appreciated.
