1939 ~ ANGELINA PARDI ~ 2023

Angelina “Angie” Pardi passed away peacefully on July 28, 2023 at the age of 84 years, undoubtedly to be with her beloved Nick. She was predeceased by her parents, Pasquale and Carmella; husband, Nicola; and by her sister, Nina. She is remembered fondly by her children, Annette (Paul), Sandi (Rob), and Frank (Lorinda) and will be dearly missed by her grandchildren, Meghan (Brycen), Kaelyn and her three bonus grandchildren, Tristian (Peyton), Trevor, and Tanner (Madison). She is also survived by her brother, Pino and his children, Carmelina (Dwight) and Pat (Penny); nephews, Joe (Joyce), Rick (Laura); niece, Mary; in addition to cousins both in Canada and Italy. Angie was born in Miglierina, Italy. The youngest of three, she was often tasked with housework duties after her sister moved to Canada. She had to walk three miles to take care of her grandmother every single day, and her grandmother would also put her to work. With daily tasks of cooking and cleaning and sewing, she feared that that would be her life. In 1963, she moved to be with her siblings in Winnipeg, a thirty-day arduous journey by ship and the last time she was ever in a boat. She met Nick and they married in 1965. Together, they worked hard supporting family overseas and raising their own. In 1976, the family moved to Medicine Hat where she often said her life finally began. She worked outside the home doing mostly kitchen work, got a driver’s license, joined her church, made friends and joined various groups. She said many times she could not imagine the life she would have had if she hadn’t come to Canada, and Medicine Hat specifically. An amazing cook, she could plan and make meals that could feed a small army. Together with Nick, they harvested a garden that would feed the family for a year lettuce, cucumbers, peas, beans (so many beans!) fresh herbs and jars and jars of tomato sauce, all lovingly prepared from the garden tomatoes. The family especially loved her lasagna, her 13 dishes for Christmas Eve, and her homemade bread and pizza. The consummate host, she made room at the table for anyone who wanted to join. The kids, grandkids, neighbors and friends were always invited. She fed many people over the years. When she was not in the kitchen, she enjoyed traveling with Nick. They drove thousands of miles and saw Canada and the US from the windows of their Dodges. They took the family to Italy to visit grandparents and other family and Angie even went to Japan solo to visit her daughter, Sandi. Angie loved family, God and her community. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, neighbor and friend. Although she was affected with dementia, she never forgot her family or friends. She was a long-standing member of the CWL at St. Patrick’s Church, through which she volunteered her time to worthy causes. She supported the Canadian Downs Syndrome Society, the CNIB, and donated countless pints of blood through the blood donor clinics. Her acts of service have impacted many. Angie’s family wishes to thank the health care workers and the staff at River Ridge for the care she received. A special thanks goes to Maria D’Amico, who listened to God that day when she decided to visit on a day that she hadn’t planned to go, in order to share in Mom’s last moments. Vigil Rites (Prayers) will be held at Saamis Memorial Funeral Chapel, 1 Dunmore Road SE, Medicine Hat, AB on Wednesday, August 9, 2023 at 7:00 pm.
