Flora Sartor

Feb 3, 1933 – Mar 15, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Flora Sartor, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.

Nonni leaves behind, her son Franco (Jane), daughter Anna (Michael). Grandchildren Elidah (Ed), Vincent (Jen), Angeline (Craig), and Philip (Becky), and 11 great, and step-great grandchildren.

Nonni is also survived by two brothers and one sister in Italy, a sister in Oregon, along with numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Nonni’s family meant everything to her, and not a day went by that she did not speak to someone. We all had a special place in her heart.

Nonni was very spiritual and took time to pray each day, leaving little time to be involved in other groups or activities. In years past she did belong to the Ladies Auxiliary of the Felice Cavallotti Lodge, and was an active member of St Peter’s Church Women’s League (CWL).

Special thank you to the staff at Berwick on the Lake, where she lived for many years. Nonni spent her last few months at Wexford Creek, where the staff gave her the extra care that she now needed. Thank you one and all.

There will be a Funeral Mass for Nonni on the 5th of April, 1 pm, at Saint Peter’s Church in Nanaimo.

Nonni will be laid to rest with her husband Domenico at the Nanaimo City Cemetery on Bowen Road following Mass. A reception to follow, all friends and family are invited to join us.

Nonni loved colour and we invite you to wear something cheerful to celebrate her life.

Flowers gratefully declined, donations may be made to the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation for the Psychiatric Department, 1200 Dufferin Crescent, Nanaimo, BC, V9S 2B7, or a special charity of your choosing.
