Avis de décès de Rosann BONOTTO
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Rosann Bonotto on August 20th, 2018, surrounded by her loved ones.
Rosann was born in Valdagno, Italy, 69 years ago and immigrated to Canada at age 6 with her parents Maddalena and Ugo. She was fluent in Italian, French and English, and travelled the world with unusual ease. She passionately enjoyed her many interests, including skiing, tennis, golf and sailing; she trekked Mongolia, climbed to the base camp of Everest, became a yoga instructor, and was an accomplished ballroom dancer.
Most of all, Rosann was a devoted and loving mother to her son, Alexandre, who preceded her in death last September. Her courage during that trying time was an example to all her many friends and she was blessed with a granddaughter, Olivia, one month later.
Rosann is survived by her loving husband, Richard Broida; daughter-in-law, Marcela Monsalve; and granddaughter, Olivia Monsalve Bonotto. She is also mourned by her cousins in Italy, Marco, Andrea, Giulio, Asia Nicotra and Monica Zenere, and countless friends in all parts of the world. During her illness, Rosann had wonderful support from her ‘caring angels’, Annalisa Piccolo and Nives Degano. We would also like to thank Dr. Peter Metrakos and Dr. Jamil Asselah at the McGill University Health Center, as well as every member of the nursing staff at the Royal Victoria Hospital for the extraordinary care they proffered at all times.
The family will receive condolences at 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 15th, at the Mount Royal Funeral Complex, 1297 Chemin de la Forêt, Outremont, QC, H2V 2P9, 514-279-6540, www.mountroyalcem.com. The Memorial Service will commence at 3 p.m. in the chapel, followed by a celebration of Rosann’s life.
Donations in Rosann’s memory may be made to ‘Dans la Rue’, an organization that helps homeless and at-risk youth to rebuild their lives. This will fulfill her wish to assist in the purchase of a much needed new (Roulotte) (the “Van”), an endeavour that she began at the time of Alexandre’s passing. https://danslarue.org/en/
