DISANO, Nina (nee D’Andrea): It’s with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Nina Disano at Kirkland and District Hospital on Sunday, August 5th, 2018 with her family by her side. Nina is predeceased by her parents Antonio and Catarina (nee DiMarco) D’Andrea. She will be forever missed by her husband of 60 years, Anthony Disano and her sons Domenic, Paul, Michael and Danny Disano, all of Kirkland Lake. She will also be lovingly remembered by her brother Germano D’Andrea of Port Colborne, ON, her sister-in-law Clara Bottaro of Kirkland Lake; her nieces and nephews Dino (Anna) Bottaro of Brampton, ON, Leanna (Brent) Seaton of Kirkland Lake, Cathy D’Andrea of Coquitlam, BC, John (Adrianna) of Lakefield, ON, Mark (Mary) D’Andrea of Etobicoke, ON and David (Monica) D’Andrea of St. Catharines, ON.
Nina was born in Villa St. Lucia, Degli Abruzzi, Italy (just southeast of Rome) on March 25th, 1930. In 1948, she and her family emigrated to Canada and settled in Kirkland Lake where her father worked in the local mines. In 1958, she married Anthony and began a family of her own.
Nina was a loving and devoted wife, mother and aunt who had a beautiful smile that touched everyone she knew. She was a devoted Roman Catholic who regularly attended mass at Holy Name Parish until her failing health prevented her from doing so. Mom was an exceptional cook whose homemade lasagna was a huge favorite of friends and family. She loved gardening and also canvassing for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, in which she did for over 25 years.
Nina’s family would like to extend their most sincere thanks for the excellent care she received by the nurses and doctors of Kirkland and District Hospital during her last months. Special thanks also goes out to the personal support workers from Closing the Gap, whose excellent homecare was of great comfort for her and her family during her final time at home.
In respect of Nina’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no funeral or visitation will be held at this time.
