Maglio, Rosetta

(June 17th, 2022)

With deep sorrow and much love the family of Rosetta Maglio announces her sudden passing at the age of 67.  Peacefully and surrounded by her family, Rosetta passed on June 17, 2022 at the Kootenay Lake Regional Hospital in Nelson, British Columbia.

Daughter to Vito and Caterina Carchidi, Rosetta was born on July 28, 1954 in Italy.  As a young child Rosetta travelled to Canada with her family starting out in Thunder Bay, Ontario, then moving to Nelson BC where she lived most of her life.  On October 6, 1984 she married the love of her life, Alfredo A. Maglio.  Rosetta found happiness in the simplest pleasure of life.   She loved to cook for her family and was talented at it. She would spend hours in the kitchen preparing meals for her family.  No one could ever make pasta quite as delicious as Rosetta – every time her grandchildren sat down to her her famous pasta they would guess how many meatballs she put into the sauce, a tradition that started the day her grandchildren could first speak until the last meal they sat down to enjoy as a family.

During Rosetta’s life, she found great comfort in caring for her loved ones.  No matter what, she was always there for her husband Alfredo, her daughter Alesandra, and her grandchildren.  She would spend hours picking out the perfect present to make sure it would bring a smile to her loved ones faces.  She remembered every detail you would tell her of what you liked and wat you didn’t like.   Rosetta was a wonderful listener and a great supporter.

Rosetta leaves behind her spouse Alfredo A. Maglio, her daughter Alesandra Taburiaux (Youri), her grandchildren Alyssa, Kaitlyn, and Emily Taburiaux, and her siblings Rita Wickens (John), as well as several aunts, uncles, cousins,, nieces, and nephews.  Rosetta was predeceased by her father, Vito Carchidi, and Andrea Marchiori (first husband).

On Monday, June 27, 2022 from 1:00 – 4:30 pm there will be an open house event held at 410 Houston Street, Nelson, BC, for friends and family who wish to give their condolences.

Her family is grateful for and would like to thank the staff of the Kootenay Lake Hospital for making her comfortable and cared for in her final days.
