It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our matriarch Carmela De Palma. Carmela lived a rich and faithful life, she passed away peacefully after a brief illness on Saturday, April 15, 2023, surrounded by her family, in her 87th year. Born to Marianna & Giovanni Petruzziello, in San Michele Di Pratola Serra, Italy, on October 2, 1936.

Carmela was a loving woman with an unshakable devotion to her husband Domenico De Palma for 65 years. She cherished her family and loved her children unconditionally. Beloved mother of Rina (Amadeo), Mario (Elizabeth), Roberto (Donata), Gerry, Pina (Justin) and Amedeo (Diana). Cherished grandmother of Bryan (Leanne), Rossella (Antonio), Matthew (Danielle), Antonella (Stefano), Amanda (Chad), Olivia (John Michael), Nicholas and Melena. Proud great grandmother to Nathan, Elyse, Charlie, Jack, Mickey, and Angelica. Her legacy lives on in each one of them.

Carmela’s greatest passion was dedicating herself to her family, by nature she was a homemaker and nurturing mother. Her beautiful garden was tended to with such care. Family dinners were especially important to her, whether it was her signature pizza, eggplant parmesan or lasagna, her cooking brought her family together. She showed her love through food, always sending her family home with care packages.

Family and friends will be received at the Ward Funeral Home (4671 Hwy 7, Woodbridge) on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Funeral service in the Ward Chapel on Thursday, April 20, 2023 at 11 o’clock, with private family entombment to follow at Beechwood Cemetery.
