April 3, 1938 - May 8, 2019
Angela (Angelina) Di Millo lived a long, full, and beautiful life. Although her courageous battle with cancer has come to an end, her strength, perseverance, and unfaltering love, will be forever celebrated by those who adored her most.
In 1956, an 18 year old Angelina boarded a ship off the coast of Italy, with nothing but a suitcase and her unfailing sense of hope, in tow. Together with her devoted husband Cesare, Angelina worked hard to build a home filled with love, support, respect, and the smell of freshly baked bread. Angelina passed her strong family values down to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, who consider themselves indescribably blessed to have learned from, and been loved by, such a strong, passionate, creative, optimistic, funny, and caring, Ma, Nonna, and Nonni.
Angelina is predeceased by her beloved husband Cesare, sister Gilda D’Urbano and parents Giuseppe and Rosa Balerna. She will be forever remembered by her children: Sergio, Aurelia (Bruce Carr), Enio (Maureen MacKillop-Di Millo), and Bruno (Wendy Cunningham), as well as her siblings, Enzo (Concettina) and Olga Balerna. She will be dearly missed by her loving grandchildren: Katrina Carr (Kristian Bartoli), Michael Carr (Michelle D’Angelo), Ben Di Millo, Mackenzie Di Millo (Chris Ferrante), and Olivia Di Millo, as well as by her darling great-grandchildren, Noah and Angelina Bartoli.
Friends and family are invited to pay their respects at Pinecrest Visitation Centre (2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa) on Monday, May 13th, from 4 to 6 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.. Angelina’s beautiful life will be celebrated on Tuesday, May 14th, with a Funeral Mass at St Anthony of Padua Church (425 Booth St, Ottawa) at 10 a.m. Entombment to follow at Pinecrest Cemetery. A reception will follow at Pinecrest Remembrance Services.
The family would like to give their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Lisa Cross and GYN Doctors/Nurses of the Ottawa General Hospital, for their exceptional care and support. Donations to the Ovarian Cancer Canada and Hospice Care Ottawa would be appreciated.
