It is with heavy hearts, we announce the peaceful passing of our mother, Ginevra (Gina) Reggimenti (nee Di Sabatino) in her 91st year on March 17, 2024 surrounded by family. Ginevra was born in Abruzzi, where she met the love of her life Santino (Francesco). They married in Rome, Italy. She is deeply missed by her two loving daughters, Ann Marie and Joe Licandro and Laura and Pat Cornelio. Beloved grandmothe­r that will be greatly missed by Frances, Christophe­r, Peter and Vanessa. She was also blessed with 6 greatgrand­children, Aurora, Pheonix, Nova, Helix, Joseph and Atticus whom they enjoyed many play dates with their Bisnonna. She adored all her grandchild­ren and great grandchild­ren. They will remember her always. Predecease­d by her late parents Guiseppe and Argentina Di Sabatino and her late brother Osvaldo Di Sabatino (Graziella) and her sister Vienna Picerno and her late brother in law Domenico. Gina also had 20 brothers-inlaw and sisters-in-law and 22 nieces and nephews all in Canada and Rome, Italy of which some have passed.

Ginevra joined her husband who had immigrated to Canada in 1963, with her two daughters and mother-in-law. She loved cooking and baking and at times competing with her husband. Together they cooked for many celebratio­ns and occasions bringing family and friends together. She loved to dance and sing to her adoring husband, playing his Organetto for many family gatherings. Her gnocchi, pastina and polenta were her grandchild­ren's favourites. We as a family attended Sunday mass every week at St. Anthony's Church, midnight mass every Christmas and participat­ed in the St. Anthony's festivitie­s. Mom loved the many trips to Italy, loved Las Vegas, the casino and many family picnics in the summer. Her love of family gatherings continue through her daughters and grandchild­ren. Friends and neighbours become family and extensions of her circle of those she loved. Gina was a woman of strength, laughter and compassion and her loving heart and warm smile was contagious. A beautiful life that came to an end. She died as she lived every ones friend. In our hearts a memory will always be kept of one we loved and will never forget.
