Ariella Buna

July 15, 1927 to April 20, 2013

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mom and nonna, Ariella. Mom was born July 15, 1927 in San Foca, Italy. She married dad on October 21, 1950. Shortly after, dad immigrated to Trail, Canada and in October, 1951 mom joined him.

She is survived by her husband Attilio, son Paul (Anna), daughter Flora (George), grandsons Jordan (Emily) and Conor (Danielle), sister Giovanna, brother Gerry (Lorraine) and numerous nephews, nieces and cousins here and in Italy.

She is predeceased by her parents Paolo and Eleonora Lazzer and her sister Dina Giacobbe.

Mom was a member of the CWL, the Sisters of Columbo and the Italo Canadese Society. She enjoyed gardening and was especially fond of her roses. During the winter, she crocheted afghans and embroidered. She bowled every Tuesday a.m. with her team the Hotshots. She enjoyed Aquafit class with her friends. Mom was a good cook and made the best gnocchi. We intend to carry on this tradition.

She practiced her Catholic religion and her family members and friends were always in her prayers.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, April 26, 2013 at 11:00 am at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Trail, B.C. Interment to follow at Mountain View Cemetery.
