February 6, 1925 - September 21, 2022
Mrs. Ada Piva, of Trail, BC passed away peacefully on September 21st 2022 at the age of 97.
Ada was born in Nogare, Crocetta del Montello, Italy on February 6, 1925. In 1949 as a young wife, she immigrated to Canada with her husband Gino.
Ada was a kind and gentle woman with a heart of gold. She was devoted to her faith in God, had an unfaltering love for her family and an impeccable strength of character. Ada always gave sound advice when she was asked, and never said an unkind word to anyone, or about anyone.
Ada enjoyed cooking, baking, crocheting, and spending time in her garden. Quite often the result of her efforts would be shared with family and friends as special treats.
Ada will be forever missed and lovingly remembered by her daughter, Mirella (Frank) Como; 3 grandchildren, Steven (Jen), Leanne (Clint), Derek (Danielle); 5 great-grandchildren Cami, Blake, Sophia, Anthony & Theo; her sister-in-law Angelina Bolzonello; very dear and special cousin Giorgina Binotto; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family in both Canada and Italy.
Ada was predeceased by her husband, Gino; son, Harry; siblings, Maria Bianchin, Eufrasia Piccolo, Lena Bianchin, Mirro Bolzonello and Marcella Bolzonello.
