Tribute

On Wednesday March 31, 2010, Mrs. Maria “Rosa” Mellace of Osoyoos passed away at Mariposa Gardens after a long illness at the age of 90 years.
She was predeceased by her parents Maria Stagliano and Giuseppe Ferraro; her sisters Carmela Garcea and Maria Teresa Vono and her brother Domenico Ferraro.
