With deep sorrow, we announce the passing of Berta Gladys Gallo on April 7, 2021, in Mississauga.
She will be terribly missed by the love of her life and devoted husband, Jorge Gallo, and her loving children Ricardo (and his wife Shireen), Rossana (and her husband Mike), and Sandra (and her husband Sam). She was the proudest and most loving Nana to her grandchildren - Aleczander, Marissa, Jessica (Sean), Adam (Teya), Nicholas, Ryan, Kaitlyn, and Tyler - who will forever hold her dear in their hearts. Her loss will also be felt deeply by loving family members in her beloved Uruguay, including her sister Nelly, many loving nieces and nephews, and her sister-in-law Ana. Now in peace, she will be reunited in Heaven with her mother, Maria Ferreira, and her father, Elbio Ferreira.
Berta was a kind and generous soul, with a compassionate and down-to-earth attitude who made friends easily and will be missed by many. If our tears could be harvested we would replenish oceans, but she would want us to carry on in love, remember her fondly, do good deeds in her name, and “enjoy the little things in life.”
Berta’s family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and support staff at Trillium Health Partners. In particular, Dr. Werneck and Dr. Jovanovic, who provided outstanding care and support, as well as Mr. Jeffrey Brown and O.R. Manager Genny Micallef (and her entire team) who showed so much compassion to our family and patiently supported us while we said our good-byes.
