It is with heavy hearts yet with gratitude for all the time we had with her, that we announce the
passing of Antoinette De Biasio at the age of 91.
Although we are saddened with her passing, we are grateful for the time she was with us, and take solace in her reuniting with her beloved Lino. Antoinette was a gracious and devoted mother to Louise (Sergio), Peter (Laurie) and Paul. She was adored by her grandchildren Mauro, Martina (Mike), Marcus (Christina), Michael (Amelia), Lucas (Ariana) and Olivia (Kane) and a proud Bisnonna to Flavia. She will be missed by her brother Angelo (Vicky) and her late brother Eddie, along with her nieces, nephews and their families in both Toronto and Italy. We would also like to acknowledge the loving care provided by her son Paul during the last years of her life.
At the age of 2, Antoinette came to Canada with her parents from San Quirino, Italy and learned
the English language through school and reading the newspaper. As a young lady, Antoinette
enjoyed going out dancing with friends. On one of her evenings out, she met a young man named Lino and shortly after married him, and the rest is history. They had their three children, worked hard and enjoyed the beautiful life they built together for 65 years.
As a young family they enjoyed travelling together, whether it was visits back home to Italy, or on trips to Trail and Prince George, British Columbia. During these trips, they found great joy in visiting their friends and family. Lino and Antoinette also enjoyed tending to their garden where they grew vegetables and fruit which they would preserve and later enjoy during the winter months.
Antoinette lived her life, with honesty and integrity, concepts she would promote to her children and grandchildren. She bestowed words of wisdom and common sense to anyone who asked for advice. She would never offer an opinion unless it was asked of her. She was a kind and gentle person to her core and was always a sound voice of reason for all. One of Antoinette’s greatest joys was her 6 grandchildren, and she was happiest watching them grow up, loving them unconditionally and teaching them valuable life lessons which they carry with them today.
She was a loving caregiver to anyone who needed help. She lived a life that served as a
foundation for her family, and her lessons and spirit will always be with us. We are grateful for her positive impact on all of us and the time we had with her.
“Forever loved and always remembered.”
