It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Theresa at St. Joseph’s Hospital on July 23, 2020 at the age of 76. Beloved wife of Giuseppe for 57 years.

Loving mother of Charles (Katherine) and Vincent. Cherished Nonna of Brittney and Natalie. Predeceased by her parents Domenica and Vincenzo Zoccoli, and in-laws, Calogero and Salvatrice Collura. Dear sister of the late Rosa Versace (the late Giovanni), Cosimo Zoccoli (Marlene), the late Frank Zoccoli (Pearl), the late Domenic Zoccoli (Laura), Lena Filice (Frank) and sister-in-law of the late Charlie Collura (the late Vincenza), the late Salvatore Collura (Domenica), the late Pietro Collura (the late Calogera), Carmelo Collura (Petrina), Luigi Collura (Margaret) and Maria Guagliano (the late Alfonso). She will be dearly missed by nieces, nephews, family and friends. Theresa was a retired employee of Macassa Lodge in Hamilton. Theresa’s smile and laughter filled up a room and her love and generosity were endless. She spent hours chatting on the phone with family and friends that were lucky enough to call and not reach a busy line. She welcomed all into her heart and her home; there was always a pot of coffee and cookies ready for whoever popped over. Theresa must have always put an extra ounce of love in her “Nonna” cookies, “Nonna” soup, “Nonna” pizza, and “Nonna” buns because, no matter how hard we try, and how good they turn out, the “Nonna” touch is seemingly impossible to replicate. Even the infamous, often lopsided, pudding cup birthday cake will stay with us as a cherished memory. She is forever in our hearts and we know that her spirit will live on in the memories that she made with family and friends, both close to home, and in her many travels to Acapulco, Italy, New York, Hawaii, California, Florida, and beyond. The family would like to thank Tina Allen from the LHIN and all the PSW’s that supported Theresa’s care.
