Ada (Nona) De Paoli

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ada (Nona) De Paoli on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at the Rocky Mountain Village at the age of 96 years. Ada was born on December 8, 1915 in Basilano, Italy.

Ada was predeceased by her husband Norino in 1976, brothers Mario and Ben Serafini and sister Evelyn Gilfillan. Left to mourn her passing are her children Sheila Manning of Calgary, Rudy and Dena De Paoli, her 8 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren.

Ada loved to cook for (an army) her family. She crocheted afghans for everyone, even after she was declared legally blind. Her most favorite pastimes were cutting grass and trying to pick every dandelion in the Elk Valley. Her home was her castle and her family her jewels. She will be missed by all who knew her. A small private family service will be held at a later date.
