MATTEOTTI, AnnePosted: February 12th, 2021
Anne Matteotti, 97 of Tempe, Arizona passed away at her home on January 24, 2021. She was formerly of Tustin, California and originally from Lethbridge and Cardston, Alberta. She was born to Joseph and Antonina (Boychuk) Smigel in Alberta, Canada. She had lived in Arizona since 1973. Anne was introduced to the love of her life, Guido Matteotti, by her school chum, Guido’s sister, Alice. When Alice married Lou Martini, a long lasting relationship was started with the entire Martini clan, which continues today. Anne and Guido farmed successfully, until they decided to move, with daughters Linda and Duenna, to Tustin. Guido went into the construction business and Anne worked in the medical field. Anne was preceded in heaven by Guido, and Duenna, but remembered in life by her daughter Linda, son-in-law Ken, grandson Timm, granddaughter-in-law Heidi as well as all of the Martini and Smigel families. Her love for her immediate family and her nieces and nephews was very special. A service will be held at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in mid February. She will be laid to rest in Lethbridge, and a service will be held when travel restrictions permit. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions in Anne’s name be made to Hospice of the Valley, 1510 E Flower St, Phoenix, AZ 85014
