Mrs. Caterina Di Ioia
1926 - 2021
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother and grandmother Caterina Di Ioia at the age of 95. Predeceased by her husband Giuseppe Perrotta of 29 years. She will be profoundly missed by her daughters Lina (Lauro), Giuseppina (Pasqualino), Maria (Domenico). She will be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren Lina (Tony), Johnny, Joe, Rina (Gerald), Antonietta, Kayla and Mailly and great-grandchildren Andrew, Sarah, Anthony, Aliyah, Marissa, Ronin and George. She will also be greatly missed by her sisters Maria, Ninetta and her brother Franco (Gilda), her brother-in-law and sisters-in-law and her many nieces, nephews and friends. She is now united with her sisters Assunta and Michelina and her brothers Domenico and Michele and many other loved ones.
Caterina lived a simple but full life. She loved her family dearly and her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She enjoyed family gatherings and welcomed all to her home with an open heart. She found pleasure in gardening, cooking, crocheting and creating beautiful blankets and doilies. She will be forever remembered for her strength, courage and kindness.
We wish to thank the wonderful staff at the CHSLD Providence Saint Joseph for their excellent care, hard work and dedication. Many thanks to Sister Danielle and Sister Muriel for their spiritual guidance and support during this most difficult period. In lieu of flowers a donation in her memory can be made to “The Heart and Stroke Foundation” or to “The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation”.
