Tommasina, affectionately known as Sina, was born in Torre Di Ruggiero, Catanzaro, Italy, on July 18th, 1933. She immigrated to Canada with her brothers in 1956 for the opportunity of a better future. Sina married the love of her life, Tony, in June 1958.Sina is predeceased by her loving husband Tony, her son Frank, and her siblings Nicola, Toto, and Salvatore(Barbara), as well as her sister-in-law Maria, Angelina, and brother-in-laws Stefano and Ciccio(Mimma). Sina will always be cherished by her children Elisabetta (Nick) and Maurizio. She will forever be adored by her grandchildren Nicole, Matthew, Anthony, Alexia, Stephanie and Michael. Sina will be held close in the hearts of her siblings Elisa, Amadeo and Mario and her sister -in- laws Anna and Nancy. Sina will be fondly remembered by her many nieces, nephews, friends, and neighbours for her lovingness, generosity, thoughtfulness, and kindness.Sina had a real zest for life, lived life to the fullest, and loved everything beautiful, including nature, fashion, jewellery but most of all, her family, and friends. Sina liked to keep busy enjoying cooking, gardening, sewing, ceramics, and playing golf. However, Sina experienced the greatest joy surrounded by family and friends. As a faithful Roman Catholic, Sina volunteered her time to St. Mary Immaculate Church and the Association of Torre di Ruggiero.
