Bice Lucy Ciolfitto (Gabriele)

May 2, 1950April 30, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bice Lucy Ciolfitto who lost her battle to cancer on April 30, 2021 at the age of 70 years. She was surrounded by her husband, Felice, children, Anthony and Danny, daughters-in-law, Michelle and Karen, and grandchildren, Lauren and Daven. Bice leaves behind two loving sisters, Anna (Tony) and Lena (Pat) whom she cherished. She was predeceased by her parents, Tony and Maria Gabriele.

Bice was born in Bagnoli del Trigno, Italy. She immigrated to Canada in 1954 and made her home in Vancouver and then Burnaby, BC. As a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, she instilled the importance of love, positivity, laughter, courage, and empathy. She will be forever missed and always remembered.

Due to COVID, a private funeral mass will be held for immediate family only at Holy Cross Parish, Burnaby, BC on May 7 at 11:00 am. Please stream the service live at this link below:

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Cancer Society. Our family is very grateful for the care Bice received from her oncology team to her palliative team. These are truly exceptional human beings who allowed our family to have three more years together.
