of Trail, passed away on November 2, 2013 at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital. She was born on September 1, 1924 in Camino, di Codroipo, Udine, Italy.

Mom was a very hard worker at home, inside and out. She was a great cook and loved filling the house with the fragrance of her days spent cooking. She was also passionate about gardening and paid special attention to Dad’s tomatoes, radicchio and eggplants. Mom’s greatest love was her family.

Irma is survived by her son Dario (Cheryl) Degan, her two daughters; Rosalba (Wally) Caron and Irene (Len) Harding, her son-in-law Tom Berisoff, 9 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, her brothers Bruno (Francesca) Infanti, family from Vancouver as well as Giovanni (Judita) Infanti and family from Italy. She will also be missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

She is predeceased by her parents; Guisippina and Pasqualli Infanti and her two brothers; Tony and Umberto Infanti (all of Italy) and her husband Carlo Degan.

Mom will be greatly missed and fondly remembered for her quiet and gentle spirit.

The family would like to thank the staff and volunteers at Poplar Ridge for their dedicated care of our mom, Irma, during her stay. Also special thanks to Dr. Wilson and Dr. McCoid for their quality care. Thank you to Bill Clark and staff for their kind and generous assistance with arrangements.
