100 years of memories
The area has lost five centenarians in the last few weeks, but they all left loving legacies.
By Debora VAN BRENK, Free Press Reporter
Carmela Maria FARRUGIA never had many material possessions but, in raising her 10 children, she had all the riches of the world. By the light of kerosene lamps she would knit, play piano and cook for her family in Malta. If any young ones fussed, she would pop a chocolate sweet into their mouths.
She loved chocolate all her life, eldest son Frank says. Eating it or sharing it, she took equal pleasure from both.
Last week, her family opened boxes of chocolates for those who paid their respects to the family matriarch at London's Donohue Funeral Home. "I knew she would do the same," Frank says.
When FARRUGIA died March 6 at the age of 106, she was likely the oldest person in the region.
In the last 10 days, Southwestern Ontario has lost the collective wisdom and guidance of five centenarians.
They were born before radio, automobiles and airplanes.
They grew up without electricity, raised families when cars were a luxury and retired as colour televisions became commonplace.
And they lived long enough to glimpse the future -- animal cloning, cellphones, climate change -- though their great-grandchildren's eyes.
Until this month, they were among the 3,795 Canadians to have lived 100 years or more.
Census data show a Canadian baby born today can expect to live 78 years.
The life expectancy for a Canadian child born in 1898 isn't known because it wasn't tracked then.
But if U.S. data have any parallel here, consider this: the life expectancy for an American baby born in 1900 was 46 years.
Here, then, a glimpse into some local lives lived well:
The pace of her last 51 years never quite matched that of Anna MISHCHENKO's first half-century.
And that was just fine with her, says her youngest son, Tony MISHCHENKO.
Born in Russia in 1903, MISHCHENKO survived the horrors of the First World War.
Then, when the 1917 Russian Revolution turned the country upside-down, she and her husband were on the "wrong" side; they lived under assumed names in a new regime with a long memory.
Then came famine. Then the Second World War.
They fled Russia with their three sons and, after a five-year stopover in Belgium, arrived in Canada in 1951.
"Canada is where they found peace, freedom. But on the other hand, they were lonely" to be so far from home.
But MISHCHENKO says there was larger purpose in all his mother did: "All her life was to preserve her family.
"This was her life," he says.
She found comfort in church and in the Bible: The epic film The 10 Commandments was her favourite movie.
And the world stopped whenever the western Bonanza came on television. "She would say, 'Boy, these guys are just like the (Ukrainian) Cossacks. They're tough and they're brave.' "
She doted on all the generations that followed hers.
"Her children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her joy."
Carmela FARRUGIA
Francesca DI FABRIZIO, born in Italy in 1901, was the glue that kept her family strong.
Sometimes she would tell stories of her childhood, when 20 family members would live in the same home, daughter Anna PICCOLI says.
Her three daughters grew up and married and moved to Canada. They persuaded Francesca and her husband, Filippo -- "the only man for me," she always said -- to come here in 1968.
Though she couldn't speak much English, she easily made Friends and earned strangers' respect.
"Nonna," as the children and grandchildren called her, stayed with her daughters and their families until moving to a nursing home 15 months ago.
Maria ZIMMERMANN says her grandmother loved to dress up, prayed for everyone and never failed to stash chocolates in her room for the grandchildren.
"She had a sparkle in her eye and she exuded love."
Harvey MILLER
Whether teaching young farm kids or volunteering with the Rodney Kiwanis Club, where he was a charter member, Harvey MILLER was a gentleman and a scholar, says daughter Marilyn RUMBLE.
"His life was helping people."
MILLER was born on a farm near Rodney in 1902. He taught in a rural school, then became principal, for two decades, of Rodney public school.
Rumble recalls how music was always part of their lives -- MILLER played piano and organ in two churches, starting at age 12 -- and how she once sang at a political nomination meeting for Paul Martin, Sr.
MILLER "had a real nice way with people," from his Friendship with Martin to his mediation help with immigrant families, she recalls.
He was married for more than 70 years to Wilden, who died in 1997, and helped raise three daughters.
RUMBLE planned to sing Promise of Joy at the funeral: "Now we celebrate his life."
Carmela FARRUGIA
In 1946, Carmela FARRUGIA's husband, John died, leaving her to raise 10 children alone. The youngest was six.
But where others might have despaired, she filled their home in Malta with music, hope and learning, son Frank recalls.
She made sure all her children -- eight remain -- had the chance to attend private schools.
"She was a very proud woman that she could raise 10 children without a father," Frank says.
And in 1958, at 60, she left Malta for Canada, where Frank had found work.
"She loved it here," with the flowers and the space, Frank recalls.
Of the many world changes that took place in her life, airplanes fascinated FARRUGIA most.
And even when hip problems forced a move into Marian Villa, she kept a protective eye on her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
And always, her faith and family -- and her chocolates -- sustained her.
"She was a very happy lady," Frank says.
Century Club
Five London-area residents older than 100 have died this month:
- Carmela Maria FARRUGIA- SANTANGELO, 106, died March 6 in London.
- Francesca DI FABRIZIO was 103 when she died in London on March - Harvey MILLER of Rodney died a week ago, age 102.
- Idella DEMERS, 102, died last Thursday in Wallaceburg.
- Anna MISHCHENKO, 101, died last Monday in London.
