It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother.

Elsa was born in Cassola, Italy and passed away on December 13, 2015 in Kitimat, BC at the age of 86. Elsa arrived in Kitimat in 1956 to join her husband and start her new family.

Predeceased by her husband Vladimiro. She is survived by her loving family; sons Ferruccio (Carol), Franco and daughter Nancy (Alan); her grandchildren Nichole (Darren), Michael (Laurel) and Theresa (Hayden) and her five great-grandchildren Lauryn, Benjamin, Raegan, Milania and Hudson; her sister Bianca and many nieces and nephews in Italy.

Elsa left a lasting impression on everyone she met, always greeting people with a warm, friendly smile or a loving hug.
