Fermina and Dino built their home in Airdrie in 1961 and later moved to Calgary. They spent several years in Italy. In the early 80’s, they moved to their home on the Bow River, where she tended to her many gardens. Mina was not only a loving mother and homemaker but also an entrepreneur. She had one of the first video stores in Calgary and brought Italian entertainers to Calgary. She was the quintessential Italian Nonna. She made all feel welcomed, but nothing was more important to Mina than her family. She is survived by her husband Berlandino; and children, Dora (Scott Patten), Dany (Paula Di Lullo), Laura, Tina; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
