D’AGNONE, Assunta

Posted: December 16th, 2022

ASSUNTA D’AGNONE 1940 – 2022 Our dear mother Assunta D’Agnone of Wrentham, beloved wife of the late Mr. Nick D’Agnone passed away peacefully in her home in Coaldale on Saturday, December 10, 2022 at the age of 82 years.
Assunta Parisone was born August 15, 1940 in Civitanova del Sannio Provincio Compobasso. In 1956, Assunta came to Canada and settled in Foremost with her mother, brother and sister to join her father who was working for the CP Rail. Assunta went to school in Foremost, working at the local restaurant after school. She met Nick when they were young in Italy, and after arriving in Canada, they dated for three years, getting married in June of 1959 in Lethbridge. They farmed with Nick’s family until 1967. In 1968, they moved to Conrad where they bought their first section of land, and from there, their family farm grew.
Assunta loved her family very much. She was so proud of all of her children, grandchildren and all of her extended family and loved to talk about each of them. Assunta’s day was brightened by visiting with family either in person or over the phone. She was generous and welcoming and anyone visiting her house over the many years either on the farm or in Coaldale can attest to her chef quality cooking skills and giving nature. She volunteered in a number of ways at the school board in Wrentham, the Lions Club, the CWL, the Soup Kitchen in Lethbridge and at various churches that she attended. Over the years on the farm, she perfected many skills necessary to be a pioneer woman. Assunta was extremely talented and could do anything with her hands. She could bake, sew, butcher, scale a fish and garden among many other things all in a dress and high heels. Assunta’s most endearing quality was how she made you feel about yourself, teaching you to cook gave you confidence and her stories would make you laugh. She will be missed by all who knew her as she had a large impact on each of our lives.
Assunta had faith in God and always reminded us to love each other.
She is survived by her 2 daughters Filomena LaPorte-Packer (Harley) and Maria Demers (Luc); 3 sons John D’Agnone (Sheila), Domenico D’Agnone (Sheila), Jamie D’Agnone (Penny); grandchildren Steven LaPorte (Marcy), Mark LaPorte (Candice), Mitchell D’Agnone (Teri), Bryce D’Agnone, Antonio D’Agnone, Tamara D’Agnone, Julia D’Agnone, Myla Demers, Jordan D’Agnone; 2 sisters Rosina Fiorante (Domenico) Phyllis (Tony) Fiorante; brother Joe Parisone (Rita); sister in law Domenica Parisone (Mike- deceased); and 5 great grandchildren.
Besides her beloved husband Nick D’Agnone, Assunta was predeceased by her parents Domenico and Edvicia and brother Mike Parisone.
A Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Monday, December 19, 2022 at the MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL 610 – 4 Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta.
