It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of Rosina on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at the age of 75. Rosina will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister. She was a bright and strong woman who was a creative artisan and enjoyed her gardening.
Rosina is survived by her husband of 48 years, Salvatore. She will be fondly remembered by her daughter Giulia (Geoffrey), her precious grandson James Alexander and her daughter Merilee. The Maida and Paulucci families of Calgary are also saddened by their loss. Her family in Kamloops will deeply miss her in their hearts: her sister Ida Costantino (Agostino); her brother Rosario Maio (Maria); and, her sister Liliana Posteraro (Joe). In Italy her brother Franceso Maio (Christina), sister-in-law Nicola, and sister Anna Maria (Batistia) are deeply sadden by the lost of their big sister. She has many other aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews in Canada and Italy who feel all a little more empty without her.
She was predeceased by father Giovanni, mother Marianina, brother Antonio and sisters who died in their childhood.
