It is with great sorrow, that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Carmela Rago. On February 19th, 2021 she passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of her family. Born in San Nicola Baronia, Campania, Italy on July 16th 1927, Carmela was the loving wife of 70 years to her adoring husband Mario, beloved sister to Antonio, Michele, Teresa and their families, cherished Zia to her many nieces and nephews and a treasured friend to so many.

Although her life ended before we were ready, the time we were blessed to have with her has left an indelible imprint on our lives. We will miss her radiant spirit, her selfless heart, her enduring courage and faith, her beautiful smile and the sound of her sweet laughter.

Our love for her is and will always be infinite. We will miss her immeasurably and will always celebrate and honour her memory. We find comfort in knowing what a beautiful life she lived and that with faith, death cannot separate us.

Until we meet again, our beautiful angel you will be.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place, our family has had to make the difficult decision to hold a private visitation and funeral mass for our dear Carmela. The funeral mass will be held on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. You are welcome to participate virtually. Please use the link below or go to the "Photo and Video" page of the obituary and click Webcast. Please mute your phones/computers once you have joined un Zoom link.

We ask that you keep her in your thoughts and prayers as we know that they will reach her.
