Peacefully, following a brief illness, it is with deep regret and sadness, that we announce the passing of Angelo Anania. With his family by his side on March 31st, 2019 at the age of 87.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered.
Left to cherish his memory is his wife Wilma, and children Giuseppe (Rina), Ventrino (Norma), Nunzio (Nella) and Angela (Murray); grandchildren Angelo (Laura), Caterina (Andrew), Daniel (Chloe), Andrew (Elyse), Angelo (Rebecca), Samantha and Nathan; sisters-in-law Maria, Vittoria, Maria, Chiara, and Norma (Aldo) Scerbo. As well as many nieces, nephews and friends.

Angelo was born Dec 1st, 1931 in Amato, Catanzaro, Italy. He came to Canada in 1954. He married his first wife Caterina Mauro and they had a son Giuseppe. Caterina tragically died when their son was 18 months old. Angelo was then blessed to have found a great love when he married Wilma. As their family grew with Ventrino, Nunzio and Angela, they built a great life filled with love, laughter and many great memories that will be cherished forever. Angelo was a hard worker, and was recognized as the greatest cement finisher in Winnipeg. Angelo was preferred by S&J and many other companies. When he wasn’t working he enjoyed spending quality time with his family, taking many trips to the cabin in Gimli. Like a true Italian he also loved to garden and make homemade wine.
Mass will be held on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 11:00 am at Holy Rosary Parish Church, 510 River Avenue. Visitation and Condolences will be held at 10:00 am. Burial will follow at Waverley Memorial Gardens, 1501 Waverley Street. Reception will follow burial at Holy Rosary Parish Church.
