EVANGELISTA, Maria Carmela

Maria Carmela Evangelista, originally from Avellino, Italy, was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She left this world on April 28, 2021 at the age of 87. Maria was the daughter of Albino and Palmina Giro and the widow of Felice Evangelista.

Maria loved spending time in the kitchen creating delicious meals for her family. She always made sure that everyone who came to our home felt welcome. Maria also had a green thumb. There was no plant that she could not keep alive or revive. Maria also adored her grandchildren. She showed her love for them by keeping their bellies full whenever they were in town and being a fierce supporter of their careers and education when they were far.

Maria left behind Bianca and husband Ben, Elvira and husband Charles, and Giovanni and fiancée Amanda. Maria also leaves behind six grandchildren: Conrad, Chiara, Anthony, Alexander, Felice, and Nicolas. She is survived by her brother Aniello (Lucia) and his family and her sister Pina (Mario) and her family in Avellino, Italy.

A private funeral service is scheduled for Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at the Cote des Neiges Funeral Home, followed by entombment at Notre-Dame-Des-Neiges Cemetery. Arrangements in care of Kelly Funeral Home- Kanata Chapel 613-591-6580
