It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Taide on November 3, 2021, predeceased by her beloved husband Umberto, devoted mother of Victor (Raffaella), Roger (Elizabeth) and Fabio and much-loved grandmother (nonna) to Daniel and Nicholas.
Predeceased by her parents Luigi Mele and Iolanda Maria Mele (née Gatto), brother Antonio Mele and brother-in-law Mario Tomasone (Tina), she will be sadly missed and remembered by extended family and friends in Canada and Italy.
Born in Alezio (Puglia), Italy, Taide married in Italy and then, like so many immigrants, joined her husband in Canada later, after a home base was established. She was a devout Catholic, deeply prayerful and unceasingly dedicated to her family. Taide loved cooking and having family for special holiday meals.
Visitation will take place at the Turner & Porter “Peel” Chapel, 2180 Hurontario St., Mississauga (Hwy. 10, N. of QEW), on Saturday, November 13, 2021 from 10-11 a.m. and prayer service at 11 a.m.
Interment at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery (Mississauga, Ontario) will follow.
Due to the limitations still in place surrounding COVID-19, space is limited, and all guests must register in advance.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada or any charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
