Palmira â??Miraâ? Zanrosso

With heavy hearts, the family of Palmira “Mira” Zanrosso of Castlegar wishes to announce her passing at her home on Sunday, June 15, 2014. Mira was blessed with 75 years of life.

Mira was born in Anguillara Veneta, Italy on July 10, 1938. Extraordinary wife, unbelievable mamma, tough nonna, loving and loyal friend and master chef, Mira “La Pevera” travelled from Italy in 1962 to start a new life in Canada with her true love, Aldo Zanrosso. She lived a full and joy-filled life, raising two daughters, pampering Aldo, canning everything in sight and loving everyone whom she considered family or friend.

Mira left behind Aldo, her loving husband of 52 years, her two daughters Katya (Shawn) and Amy (Dave), her grandson Seamus and her many beloved relatives and friends.

Mira’s passing was celebrated by Fr. David John at St. Rita’s Catholic Church on Monday, June 23, 2014.

Words cannot express how much she will be missed.

Ti vogliamo tanto, tanto bene mamma e non ti dimentichiamo mai.
