It is with deep sadness, we announce that our loving mother,  Concetta Gentile,  passed away unexpectedly from Covid while in hospital on May 12th, 2021.


Our mom  will be deeply missed by her loving family, daughter Josie (David, deceased), son Franco (Josie), brother Attilio (Lucia), sister Emma (Carmine), and by her nieces and nephews.  She was a devoted mother, who battled hard through so many health ailments and never gave up on life, until the very end.  She was a most courageous and brave individual.


Our mother is now in the presence of the Lord and reunited with her family in heaven - husband Salvatore, mother Antoniette, father Domenico, brothers Pietro and Vittorio,  mother-in-law Giuseppina, father-in-law Francesco,  sister-in-laws Rosaria and Carolina and son-in-law David.


She will never be forgotten by those who loved her.


Due to the current Covid - 19 restrictions in Toronto that allow a maximum number of guests to attend a funeral, the service details will be kept private and attendance will be by invite-only.


The family thanks you for your support and understanding during this challenging time.

Franco and Josie, Please accept heartfelt condolences from our family. While I met your mother only briefly, I know how important a figure she was in the life of her family. I feel I have gotten to know her through her son Franco who always had her best interests at heart and worked tirelessly to seek the care she needed. Inspiring that kind of love and devotion from her son speaks to the woman that she was. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Our deepest condolences to Franco and his family at the sad passing of his mom. Our hope is for you to face the sad days ahead knowing that you have a wide group of friends who care about you and would help you share your grief to lighten your burden. You and Josie can always count on me and both of my sons. You shared a lot of good times with us at the cottage, and while no one knows what the future will throw at us, we nonetheless have to work with what we have on any given day and try to see the hope at the end of the tunnel. Take care of yourselves at this difficult time of your life. with love Gill, Simon and Rory
