ROSA, Annamaria Campiello
By Louisa ROSA and Greta DELONGHI, Page A20
Mother, grandmother, gardener, chorister. Born February 2, 1928, in Vicenza, Italy. Died May 17 of pulmonary fibrosis in Hamilton, Ontario, aged 78.
Anna Rosa spent her life looking for adventure and fun, even as life's forces bore down on her. When the bombs rained on her northern Italian town during the Second World War, Anna, then 14, ran on the tops of apartment buildings to watch.
She lived in a time of tyrants. She was made to parade down the streets of Vicenza with other children all wearing costumes in Mussolini's honour. And the force at home was her father, who was a gifted musician but egocentric and abusive toward his seven children, including the fourth child, Anna.
At the end of the war, Anna, now 17 and an office worker, met a former soldier working as a guard on a street in Vicenza. Luigi ROSA wooed Anna who, eager to get out from under her father's thumb, married him and moved to his mountain village. Their first daughter Florina was born in 1947; they emigrated to Hamilton, Ontario, where Stelco was hiring. Their son Lino was born in 1950 and then Louisa in 1954. Anna loved to dance and on the dance floor she and Luigi looked the perfect couple. But Anna soon found she had married a broken man; an alcoholic. Although theirs was a volatile, combative relationship, Anna nursed her husband through cancer until he died in 1980.
Although married life was difficult, Anna still expressed her generous spirit. She grew beautiful flower gardens and cooked extraordinary meals of gnocchi, oxtail stew, polenta, risotto and, on Sundays, her famous chicken noodle soup. A talented seamstress like her mother Adelaide, Anna made her children clothes, using Vogue patterns as they got older. She often did their household chores so they could do their homework. She took pride in their accomplishments, and in those of her nine grandchildren.
But it was during her 26 years as a widow that Anna really found her wings -- and roots. As president of a local club of Vicentini (those from Vicenza), Anna flew to Italy for conferences. She travelled south, once to Guatemala on a church mission, and most years between January and April to the warmth of Mexico.
When she was at home her phone rang constantly. She sang with her church choir and a small choral group. She loved music, especially operas such as La Boheme and La Traviata. She still loved to dance, searching out men who could tango properly. It was while dancing six years ago that she felt short of breath, with her heart racing. When she was finally diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive hardening of the lung tissue, her lungs were functioning at only half their capacity.
But she continued to sing for four years until she could no longer climb the stairs to the church choir loft. Although travelling less meant regular Sunday dinners with family, she chafed against her physical restrictions. On a European cruise with her daughters three years ago, she refused an oxygen device and could hardly leave her cabin. But she did get ashore on the Greek island of Mykonos and raved about her meal of moussaka.
She spent most of last January to May bedridden and on oxygen, and on the Tuesday after Mother's Day she told Florina, "It's time to go to the hospital." She saw family at the hospital that day and died during the night.
Her children recently cleaned out her home, but her son-in-law Tim couldn't bear to throw out one of her old pots. It no longer worked as a pressure cooker and the handle was loose, but Anna had made the best polenta in it. So much so good came out of such brokenness.
Louisa is Anna's youngest child, and Greta is Louisa's friend.

DELVES, Kathleen
In loving memory of a special mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Kathleen, who passed away four years ago today, October 13, 2002.
Please God put your arms around mom
And give her special care
Make up for all the hard times
And all that was unfair.
Find the softest pink pillow
To rest her head upon
Place a kiss upon her rosy cheek
And tell her it's from us.
Always in our hearts, Gail, Rolly, Tammy and Michelle.

ELIA, Mariano Antonio (1917-2006)
On January 24th, after a lengthy and valiant struggle with cancer, Mariano ELIA passed away at the age of 88. A pioneer in Canadian building history, he left his distinctive mark on Toronto's architectural landscape. Having defied death many times in recent years, it was easy to imagine he'd be back up for yet another round. While most people do less in old age, Mariano continued to seek out new challenges. He was the kind of man who, at the age of 86, bought the house next door to him, not because he needed to, but because it was a gigantic fixer-upper. It wasn't unusual to see him standing atop some scaffolding, oblivious to the danger - that was just his way. Born in 1917, Mariano's story began like that of so many other immigrants coming to Canada. At the age of 12, he left the small town of Aprigliano in Calabria, Italy, and ended up in Toronto after a difficult passage through Ellis Island. One year later, in 1930, he was selling doughnuts door-to-door near his home on Ossington Avenue, struggling to earn some pocket change. Mariano learned construction skills from his father and at the age of twenty-four, started his own company, Dell Holdings (later The Elia Corporation). In the 1950s, Dell was considered one of Canada's top five general contractors. At thirty-four, he developed the country's first successful satellite community, Erindale Woodlands, on 450 acres in Mississauga. The project was considered risky at the time because of its sheer size and rural location. This same drive and determination led him to later build large housing developments, schools and government buildings. For those who knew him well, Mariano was complex, difficult at times, but never dull. "It wasn't just that he was a highly successful businessperson, a visionary really", Harry ARTHURS, his friend and the former president of York University, recently wrote. "It was - for me - that he was a man of such extraordinary character. He had great spirit, great energy and great style. We talked about so many things: politics, children, history, architecture, land development, art, gossip, my university, even figs." Time spent with Mariano often involved some sort of discovery, be it scouting property, discussing the subtleties of paint and light, taking long walks or learning how to cook risotto. He loved to work with his hands: he was a carpenter, bricklayer, a draftsman, a chef and an artist. From an early age, Mariano painted and sculpted - even painting on burlap when he couldn't afford canvas. He enjoyed gardening and even wrote poetry. His Calabrese-style cooking was rustic, improvisational and delicious. In 1984, he created The Mariano Antonio Elia Foundation supporting humanitarian, educational, religious and scientific aims. As he once explained in an interview, "I learned at a very early age that I was in Canadians' backyard. I was the stranger and I was the one that had to adapt. It's my country now… I say I owe a lot to Canada." His commitment to philanthropy continued to grow in his later years. He established The Mariano A. Elia Chair in Italian-Canadian Studies at York University, The Dr. Mariano Antonio Elia Chair in head and Neck Cancer Research at Toronto's Princess Margaret Hospital and The "Off the Wall" Hands-On Centre for Children at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Mariano bore every honour he received with immense pride. In 1985, he accepted an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from York University. He was knighted (Commendatore) by the Italian government in 1988 and was also made First Honorary Citizen of the town of Rende in Calabria. Two years later he was made a Knight of Malta, Sovereign Military Order of Saint John of Jerusalem. Just over a year before he died, Mariano acquired a 100-acre working farm and any given Sunday might be spent with his youngest grandkids, collecting eggs and picking tomatoes. Then it was pasta or a frittata for supper back at his house. Big builder man that he was, this is how his family likes to remember him best. Mariano was the father of Marlene DELZOTTO, Valerie ELIA, Susan ZORZI, Paul ELIA, Mario ELIA and Lisa Elia WALSH; loving nonno of Lia, Michaele, Gian Paolo, Noelle, Rochelle, Sandro, Mariano, Emilio, Luca, Dylan, Kiri and Cody; bisnonno (great-grandfather) of James, Shannon, Alessandro, Ryan and Joshua. He is survived by his former wife, Ines, his brother Ernest and sisters Helen and Gloria. He was the beloved uncle of Paul MANTELLA. A private service was held on January 26th. If so desired, donations to The Mariano Elia Foundation can be sent to: 1100 Central Parkway West, Unit 1, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada M5E 4E1.
