With heavy hearts, we announce the quiet passing of Rina Scroccaro on October 18, 2015.
Born in 1933, Rina met her beloved husband Antonio while bike-riding in the Alps. In 1961, Rina and Tony moved from Italy and settled in Chemainus where they raised their family and celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Rina was the heart of her family, a most devoted mom and loving wife who enjoyed cooking and working in her often photographed flower garden. She had many good times painting with her Ladies Art Group, playing “wickedly” in bocce tournaments and travelling.
Rina was predeceased by her son Michael (1983). She leaves behind her husband and daughter Louise, sister Bruna, nephews and nieces including Diane McMahon (Barry), Ted Negrin (Donna), extended family and friends.
Thank you to Dr. Manhas for his excellent care over the years along with Dr. Morris, Dr. Broere and the Chemainus Health Care Centre staff for their compassionate care in mom’s time of need.
A memorial service for Rina will be held on Monday, October 26, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at Sands Funeral Chapel in Duncan, 187 Trunk Road, with reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, the family would deeply appreciate donations to the Chemainus Health Care Centre.
