Passed away peacefully in her 94th year with the loving comfort and support of her family.
Predeceased by her husband of 72 years, Anthony Joseph Altilia, who she lost 8 months earlier, her 6 siblings and son-in-law, Peter Parise.
Anne will always be loved and respected by her sister Bessie (Frank) Bassano, children Anna Maria (Phil), Anthony Jr. (Josephine), Paul (Ross), Paulette (Thomas) and John (Laura). Greatly missed by her grandchildren Anthony, Peter, Andrea, Zachary, Elliott, Jason, John-Paul, Alexandria, Ayla and Briana as well as her great-grandchildren Adam, Sophia, Michael, Emily, Ronan and Violet.
Anne will always be remembered as a loving and dedicated mother who welcomed all who passed through the doors of 312 with a sincere smile and hot piece of fresh pizza or a cup of tea.
That same hospitality was received by anyone fortunate enough to be served by her in the Housewares Department at The Bay where she was regularly acknowledged for her outstanding service.
A funeral mass and reception will be held at St. John's Church, 794 Kingston Rd., Toronto on Monday, April 16th at 11 a.m. If desired, donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada.
