Mrs. Maria Felli
October 1, 1928 – June 26, 2018
It is with deep sadness that the family of Maria Felli (nee Piperni) announces her passing at the age of 89, after a 6 year struggle with Alzheimer’s. Maria was born and raised in Celano, Italy, and immigrated to Canada with her husband, Augusto, in 1954, where they started a new life. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 45 years in 1998. She is survived by her children: Tina (Rob) and Larry (Shelley). She also leaves behind her cherished grandchildren: Chrissy (Kerry), Melissa (Tyler), Derek (Amber), Hunter and Trent. Last year she became a great grandma to 3 beautiful little boys: Dominic, Kayden and Hudson. Her kids and grandkids always provided her great joy. A Mass of Christian burial will take place on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at St. Francis of Assisi Parish, 2025 Napier Street, Vancouver at 10:00 am with entombment to follow at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Garden Mausoleum. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC. The family wishes to thank the staff at Royal City Manor for their compassionate care of Maria for the past 6 years. Also a special thank you to Dr. Yap. REST IN PEACE MAMMA! WE LOVE YOU.
Arrangements under the direct supervision of Forest Lawn Funeral Home.

Dear Larry, Shelley, Tina, Rob, Chrissey, Derek and Melissa,
I am so sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother and great grandmother who touched my life in so many lovely ways and who I adored very much. She had a heart of gold and compassion for so many people. I enjoyed many lovely meals and family dinners which I will always cherish and loved her company.
She kept me well fed and do remember her famous zucchini sticks. Will always have her in my heart and hold on to the wonderful memories that I am so blessed to have.
Love Rita Conte
