BRUNO, Maria

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Maria Bruno, beloved sister to deceased Nella, Nicoletta and Vitina, and sister-in-law to Michele, and the late Giuseppe and Antonio. Loving Aunt of Anna (Nicola), Angela, Mike (CarolAnn), Rita (David), Patrizia, Rosangela (Leo), Saverino (Anna), Tutuccio, and the late Minguccio. Adoring Great Aunt to Stephanie (Adam), Emma (Jeff), Salvatore (Josine), Zoë, Mekaile, the late Austin, Maria Teresa, Chiara and Daniele. Dear Great Great Aunt to baby Bruce. Her family in Canada, as well as her beloved nieces, nephews, and sisters and brothers in law in Italy will very dearly miss her.

The family would like to thank the incredible caregivers at Villa Colombo, especially Gloria, Tibleth, Neves, Rini, Janet, Matthew and the amazing staff on the 2nd floor of the Fidani Wing for their outpouring of love and care to dear Maria.

Her vibrant smile and gentle, loving nature will be remembered by us forever. We love you and will miss you, cara Zia Maria.

As we reflect on our Zia Maria, just days after she has left us to join her younger sisters in Heaven, we remember her positive energy and enthusiasm – her ready smile and her willingness, more often than not, to offer an “I love you” one of the few, but often repeated phrases she perfected in English

We remember her dedication to the Bruno family, having lost her Dad, early in her young life – she took on the “head of the family” role – and lead the charge to ensure that the remaining brood of head strong women would not only survive but thrive despite the challenges in post-war Italy.

We remember her amazing cooking skills, and her appreciation of good food, her love for her family – who in return was dedicated to her. It is a great testament to who Zia Maria was that today she is mourned by three generations of her family – not only her Brother-in-law, Michele Carbone, her Nieces Anna, Angela, Rita, Patrizia, & Roseangela and Nephews, Saverio, Tutuccio, the (late) Domenico, and Mike, but also by their children, ranging in ages from 11 – 32 who despite being their great Aunt – was a pivotal part of their lives.

Zia Maria – we love you and will miss your ready smile, your gentle humour and your unending dedication to your family.
