Obituary

With sadness, we announce the passing of Maria Niro (nee Spensieri) on May 29, 2019 at the age of 87. Predeceased by her husband Benny (October 8, 1993), she leaves behind her beloved sons Nick (Gloria) and Lino (Vita). Proud Nonna of Ben, Michael (Kristen), Theresa (Matthew Davey), Elizabeth, and Catherine (Christopher Gibson) and Bisnonna of Everleigh. Predeceased by her brother Giovanni, she will forever be remembered by her sisters Ida (Michele Spensieri), Concetta (Pasquale DiBiase) and Christina (Giovanni Masella) as well as her many nieces, nephews and their families. Maria was the eldest of her five siblings and immigrated to Canada with her son Nick in 1954, joining her husband. Maria was an active member of her church and always prioritized her family’s needs above her own. Nonna’s house and cooking was always the centre of holiday celebrations and Sunday lunches. She loved to make pizza, tomato sauce, salami, sponge cakes, gnocchi and more for everyone to enjoy and carry on the traditions of making. Independent and strong, she was one of few women to drive during that time. The matriarch of the family, she fought Parkinson’s bravely for over 10 years. Much missed, loved and admired by her family.

Visitation will be held at Bernardo Funeral Home (2960 Dufferin St., south of Lawrence Ave. W.) on Friday May 31 from 2pm – 4pm and 6pm – 9pm. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Charles Borromeo Church (811 Lawrence Ave. W., at Dufferin St.) on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 9:30 a.m. Entombment will follow at Prospect Cemetery (1450 St. Clair Ave. W., east of Caledonia Rd.). In memory of Maria, donations may be made to Parkinson Canada.
