With love we say goodbye to our mother, aunty/zia, nonna, bisnonna and friend Esterina. She was born in Bagnoli del Trigno, Italy, and passed away at the age of 98.
Esterina was predeceased by her parents Costanzo and Maria Vitellone, her husband Paolo, and her sisters Rina and Rosina. She is survived by her sons Felix (Annette) and Gus (Jacquie), sister Gina (Ron) Dini, niece Anna, grandchildren Deb (Mike) Morrissey, Corinne (Scott) Franklin, Duane (Andrea), Mark (Jen) and Sean, and great-grandchildren Jordan, Taryn, Carissa, Garrison, Austin, Hope, Alivia, Emily, Bria, Ayva, Ella and Teo.
Esternia loved having the family together, cooking, gardening, sewing and of course she loved her bingo! A special thank-you to Father Tepoorten and the family and friends who were so kind and loving to Esterina during her stay at extended care.
We would also like to thank Dr. Schweitzer and the staff at extended care for their kindness and compassion.
Donations may be made in Esterina’s name to Powell River Hospital Foundation or the charity of your choice.
