Antonietta Raffin

October 23, 1931 - September 4, 2019

Obituary

Antonietta passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 4, 2019, at 8 pm; her son Luke by her side. Antonietta Fedrigo was born in Cordenons, Italy, on October 23, 1931. It was in Cordenons where she met and married Gino Raffin. The couple moved to Legnano and had two children. In 1966, in the hopes of a better life, the family moved to Powell River, where Gino started a job at the mill. Antonietta continued working in Powell River at the things she loved the best: keeping a home for her family, cooking for family and friends, tending to her garden and raising two sons. Her children were the source of Antonietta’s greatest joy, until she was blessed with grandchildren and then great-grandchildren. After caring for Gino before his death, and undergoing major heart surgery, Antonietta found her own health in decline. This fiercely independent woman was no longer able to live on her own but she was able to transition to living in Luke and Connie’s home with dignity and grace. She adjusted again when she became a resident at Evergreen Extended Care. She will be missed by all who knew her. Predeceased by her husband Gino, Antonietta leaves behind her sons Luke (Connie) and Angelo (Doreen); her two grandchildren Nick (Heather) and Cristy; her two great-grandchildren Olivia and Carson; as well as many nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend its sincere thanks to all the wonderful staff at Evergreen Extended Care who took such good care of Mom when we were no longer able to. As well, thank you, Dr. Schweizter, for the excellent care you provided.
