Iallonardo (DeMeo), Carmela Maria

May 4, 1928 - September 23, 2017

Carmela passed away peacefully on the morning of Saturday September 23rd at Mountain Lake Seniors Community.  Although family and friends were surprised by the suddenness of her turn of events, they are greatly comforted in knowing she a had a healthy and happy 89 years with us.  Carmela was born in St. Stefano del Sole, Italy where she grew up in a family of 6 brothers and sisters.  She married her sweetheart and shortly there after they immigrated to Canada to start their life and family together.  Carmela and her husband Luigi (pre-deceased 2011) called Nelson their home, but never forgetting their roots and Italian homeland.   Together they raised 3 children, 2 daughters and 1 son.  She is finally reunited with her husband Luigi. She is survived by daughter Roberta, son Michael (Danielle), brother Fedele and sister Tommasina. Carmela will also be missed by her 4 grandchildren Christopher, Danielle, Carolin and Luca

May you rest in peace and tranquility Carmela.  You are loved ever so much, passionately and deeply, missed by all those you have left behind.  A sincere and heartfelt thank you is deserved for all the staff at Mountain Lake.
