Lillian Mandala (Farina)
January 4, 1929 - December 27, 2022
With heartfelt sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Lillian (Mandala) Farina on Tuesday, December 27th, 2022 a week short of her 94th birthday.
Predeceased by her loving husband, Cosimo Farina.
She leaves behind her cherished children Frank (Mary Paternostro), Marisa (Angelo Montinaro), Claudio (Sylvia Vatrano) and Gina (Luigi Musto). Beloved grandmother to Rick (Giovanna), Sergio (Jenny), Marco (Lissette), Adriano, Sasha, Claudia, Alec (Fanny), Briana (Stefan) and Erika.
Great-grandmother to her precious Gianluca, Sofia, Giuliana and Gabriella.
Dearest sister to the late Rita (Late Mario), Diana (Late Vincent), Conrad (Jeannine) along with many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends throughout Canada, The United States and Italy.
Lillian will be remembered for her kind heart and beautiful soul. She was sassy, sensitive, witty and simply the most perfect mother and grandmother. Her fondest memories were the family gatherings at her home. She enjoyed music, reading and later in life, she developed a passion for painting.
Special thanks to her wonderful caregivers Lissette and Marie-Anne.
Lillian will be deeply missed by her family, friends and all those that knew and loved her.
