Steffes, Irene (Fulla)

1923 ~ 2010

Passed Away on September 25, 2010. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Irene at the age of 87 years at Dufferin Place in Nanaimo. She was devoted to her family, giving lovingly throughout her life. Predeceased by her parents Vittoria (1961), Guiseppe (1974), husband Lefty (1990) and brother-in-law Angie (1992). Survived by her son, Dan; brother, Joe Fulla (Irene); sister, Anne Sedola; Uncle Gino Cosmacini, and numerous cousins. To some of her many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews Irene was fondly known as Auntie Nina.

A native daughter of Nanaimo, Irene developed many long, lasting friendships through her many social activities and also during her work as a seamstress at Anderson’s Clothing store. We are grateful to Dr. Calvin for his continuing care and to the staff and residents of Dufferin Place.
