Obituary of Lucia (Lucy) Cimino

It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Lucy Cimino (nee Gualtieri). She passed away peacefully with her husband Frank and family by her side on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at the age of 93 years.
Lucy was born in Petrizzi, Catanzaro, Italy, and raised in Aprigliano, Cosenza, Italy until she immigrated to Calgary, AB, in August 1956. Lucy portrayed strength and passion throughout her life, a devoted Wife, Mother, and Nonna. She loved her flower garden, especially her roses, cooking, baking, sewing, knitting, trips to Fairmount Hot Springs in B.C., as well as spa days, but most importantly of all, caring for her family.
Lucy will be lovingly remembered by her husband Frank of 67 years, four children, Rosa (Rose), Franca (Fran), Rita Gerritsen, Dino (Joe) Cimino; and grandson, Sean Gerritsen. Lucy was predeceased by her mother Assunta, and father Gabriele Gualtieri; siblings, Francesco, Sr. Gesuina, Maria, and Antonietta.
The family would like to thank Jodi Elder for assisting in her care, over these last few years.
A private family service will be held. Condolences, memories, and photos may be shared and viewed here.
