Maria Mary Rossi

January 3, 1926 - January 16, 2014


Mary passed away peacefully at Mountain Lake Seniors Community on Thursday, January 16 after a lengthy illness. Mary was born on January 3, 1926 in Torrecuso, Benevento, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1951.  She married the love of her life, Gino Rossi, on September 12, 1953. Mary raised four children and was a loving wife and mother. She loved to take long walks, work in her garden, cook and bake, but most of all, Mary loved spending time with her five grandchildren, Tyler, Danielle, Chris, Brayden and Alexandra.

Mary is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Gino, her four children, Lena Guignion (John), Judy Haverland, David Rossi, Nancy Pompu (Ron), and five grandchildren, Tyler Hale, Danielle Haverland, Chris Haverland, Brayden Pompu, Alexandra Pompu, and many nieces and nephews. Mary was predeceased by her parents Nicola and Lena Musa, sister Lucy, and brothers, Joseph, Aldo, and John.

Our family would like to thank Dr. Keith Bridger, Dr. Trevor Janz, and all the staff at Mountain Lake Seniors Community for the wonderful care she received during her stay. We are very thankful.
